It includes general cardiology, cardiothoracic surgeries, pediatric cardiac surgeries, and interventional cardiology. Cardiac or heart surgeries are done to repair the abnormal or damaged structures of the heart, implant medical devices to control or support the heart function, or transplant a healthy heart to replace the damaged one.
Different types of surgeries are performed based on the reason for the operation and the heart condition. Some of the types of heart surgeries include - aortic surgery, coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery, valvular surgery, congenital heart surgery, arrhythmia surgery, heart transplant, etc.
Pediatric cardiology involves the treatment of structural disorders of the heart and the complications related to it. Cardiothoracic surgery involves the surgical treatment of disease of the heart and lungs. Interventional cardiology involves the management of coronary artery disease and its complications.
EPS or electrophysiology study is a test procedure conducted to see how the electric impulses conducts through the pathways of your heart. In case the conduction pathway is normal it indicates your heart rates are normal. In case if abnormal…Explore More
An abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) normally refers to localized enlargement of the abdominal aorta. It carries blood away from your heart to the rest of your body. Though your aorta is a strong and long-lastingartery, yet over the time its…Explore More
Angiography, also known as arteriography is an imaging technique which is used to look inside the lumen of heart, arteries, veins and different blood vessels. This test is used to study if there is any blocked, narrowed, enlarged, or malformation…Explore More
Angioplasty or coronary angioplasty or percutaneous intervention is a treatment procedure for treating arterial blockages in cardiovascular diseases. The procedure is done by temporary inserting and inflating a tiny balloon in the area where there is arterial clog, which results…Explore More
What is Aortic Valve Replacement/Mitral Valve Replacement? The main pumping compartment of the heart (left ventricle) is connected with the main artery that supplies oxygen-rich blood to your body. The aortic valve is situated in between the aorta and the…Explore More
The main propelling compartment of the heart is the left ventricle, which is connected with the main artery that delivers oxygen-rich blood to your body. The atrial septum is the muscular wall that separates the left and right side of…Explore More
The Bentall procedure, otherwise known as the Aortic Root Replacement procedure, is essentially a surgical treatment to treat aneurysms in the aortic root. In this procedure, the diseased portion of the aortic root is surgically amputated and a biological or…Explore More
Tumour is essentially an outgrowth on any tissue or organ surface. When this tissue outgrowth occurs on the surface of the cardiac tissues, then it can be medically termed as a cardiac tumour. Usually, the heart chambers or the heart…Explore More
Our heart is essentially a pump that supplies oxygenated blood to all the muscles in the body so that they can function properly and do their jobs to maintain their role in the physiological environment. The heart is also a…Explore More
Fontan or Fontan Kreutzer procedure is a paediatrics cardiac surgery which is done as a final surgical step for babies with hypoplastic left heart syndrome or HHLS. In other words children with congenital cyanosis or blue blood syndrome have their…Explore More
What is an ICD device? Implantable cardioverter defibrillator or ICD are small devices of the size of a pager. These are generally implanted under patient’s skin in the chest to detect abnormal heart rhythms. These are particularly useful in preventing…Explore More
Our heart is a four-chambered organ whose main function is to pump the oxygenated blood across the human body and return the deoxygenated blood to heart for purification with oxygen. To make sure that the heart has the unidirectional flow…Explore More
What is Norwood Procedure? Normally, the left side of our heart pumps blood all over the body, and the right side of the cardiac muscles pump blood into the lungs. In some cases, especially in infants, the lower left chamber…Explore More
What is Pacemaker Implant Surgery? In simple terms a pacemaker is a small electrically charged biomedical equipment which is surgically implanted under the skin within the heart to control irregular heart beats or arrhythmias. The surgical procedures for implanting the…Explore More
Our heart has four chambers, two auricles, and two ventricles. Through the pulmonary artery, the deoxygenated blood is sent to the lungs for oxygenation and return to the heart via pulmonary veins for redistribution in the body. In some cases,…Explore More
