Paediatric Cardiology

Paediatric and Fetal Cardiology is a field of medicine related to the treatment of heart diseases in the unborn, growing and developing children. Paediatric cardiologists have a thorough understanding of general paediatrics along with an expertise in heart diseases. In order to provide all-round patient care, Paediatric cardiologists treat arrhythmias (variations in heartbeat rhythm), congenital heart diseases (present at birth) and disturbances of circulatory function. They work with a wide range of specialists as a part of a multidisciplinary team to examine and treat patients more effectively.

LVAD

LVAD

A left ventricular assist device (LVAD) is a pump that we use for patients who have reached end-stage heart failure. We surgically implant the LVAD, a battery-operated, mechanical pump, which then helps the left ventricle (main pumping chamber of the heart) pump blood to the rest of the body.

TAVR

TAVR/TAVI

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) is a well-proven procedure for aortic valve replacement in people who are considered as high risk patients for Open Heart Surgery. In this procedure, a new aortic valve is fixed without removing the old, damaged valve with the help of a specialised catheter through a process similar to stenting. A new artificial valve wedges into the place of the older aortic valve.

Electro-physiology

Electro-physiology

An electrophysiology (EP) study is a test performed to assess your heart's electrical system or activity and is used to diagnose abnormal heartbeats or arrhythmia. The test is performed by inserting catheters and then wire electrodes, which measure electrical activity, through blood vessels that enter the heart.

Advanced Heart Failure Content

Advanced Heart Failure Program

Heart Failure doesn’t mean heart fail; in fact, it is condition in which heart cannot pump enough blood to meet body’s need. It is a condition which develops over time. The Advanced Heart Failure program is backed by a comprehensive team of 40 doctors, who have a cumulative surgical and clinical expertise of more than 30 years. The Advanced Heart Failure program is equipped with newest technology and backed by adept clinical and surgical expertise for handling any critical procedures.

What is an Electrophysiological Study?

An electrophysiological study (EP study) is a test used to evaluate your heart's electrical system and to check for abnormal heart rhythms.

Natural electrical impulses coordinate contractions of the different parts of the heart. This helps keep blood flowing the way it should. This movement of the heart creates the heartbeat, or heart rhythm.

During an EP study, your doctor inserts small, thin wire electrodes into a vein in the groin (or neck, in some cases). He or she will then thread the wire electrodes through the vein and into the heart. To do this, he or she uses a special type of X-ray “movie,” called fluoroscopy. Once in the heart, the electrodes measures the heart’s electrical signals. Electrical signals are also sent through the electrodes to stimulate the heart tissue to try to cause the abnormal heart rhythm. This is done so that it can be evaluated and its cause can be found. It may also be done to help evaluate how well a medicine is working.

During the EP study, specialists in heart rhythms or an electrophysiology specialist may also map the spread of the heart’s electrical impulses during each beat. This may be done to help find the source of an abnormal heartbeat.
