Cardiology refers to a medical specialty that deals with disorders of the heart. This field deals with diagnosis and treatment of various heart conditions, including heart failure, congenital and congenital, heart disease, electrophysiology, and valvular disease.
India is now a popular destination for cardiology treatment. The cost of treatments in India is very affordable and the best. Many foreigners have chosen to treat their heart problems in India because of these advantages.
Medi Connect has played a significant role in the arrangement of Cardiology treatments for Indians for many patients coming to India to treat their heart disease. We are associated with many top-notch hospitals in the country. We can arrange for a variety of treatments:
Angiograms are a medical procedure that allows you to see and image inside blood vessels and other body organs. This imaging technique requires a nonionic contrast medium.
Angioplasty is a surgical procedure that widens the blood vessels and removes obstructions, primarily the coronary. The non-ionic contrast improves the clarity of the imaging. There are two types of angioplasty: balloon angioplasty, which removes obstructions with a balloon; the other is to place a metal stent that unblocks the blockage.
Arial septal defect (ASD), a common congenital cardiac abnormality, is also known as the hole in the septum of your heart muscle. ASD closure, also known as the hole at the septum of a heart muscle, is a procedure to treat the condition. A catheter is used to perform the procedure. The catheter is used to close the hole. It is passed up the blood vessels to the heart.
ASD Heart Port Surgery, also known as the hole or atrial septal defect, is a procedure that treats ASD. This procedure involves making a small incision in the right side of the chest to allow access to the heart. To repair damaged heart valves, tubes are inserted into the vessels in the groin.
Aortic valve repair (AVR), is a surgical procedure to remove the aortic orifice. Open-heart surgery can be performed with a mechanical valve or a donor. The mitral valve replacement (MVR), is similar to medical techniques. It replaces the abnormal valve.
Balloon aortic valveoplasty is a medical procedure that uses anesthesia to open or widen the heart valves. This procedure involves the insertion of a thin, flexible tube with the balloon through an artery in the arm and the groin. The valve opening gradually opens up as the balloon expands.
The Bentall procedure involves the replacement of a composite valve-graft. This procedure is used to treat the aortic valve and ascending aorta as well as the aortic root. It also substitutes the coronary arteries for the grafts.
The Blalock-Thomas-Taussig shunt is a surgical procedure for targeting cardiac problems. This temporary medical treatment is intended for children who are not yet ready for surgery or other treatments. The pain-relieving method increases the pulmonic flow in duct dependent Cyotic Heart defects.
CABG stands Coronary Artery Bypass Graft. This procedure allows adequate blood flow to the heart. The procedure also provides the necessary nutrients and oxygen to the heart muscles. The bypass graft is taken from either a vein in the leg or from the inner chest wall.
CABG-Redo is more complex than the primary CABG. This treatment is recommended for patients with more complex comorbidities. Patients with non-cardiac arterioles and more sclerotic heart disease than primary CABG can also be treated.
The defected valve can be replaced in AVR/MVR and CABG. This involves a bypass or detour to the blocked or narrowed part of the coronary vessel.
CABG – High Risk Surgery involves the removal of part of an artery, vein, or other parts of the body. To redirect blood, only arteries or veins that are clear of blockage can be chosen. They can also be used to bypass blockages in the heart vessels. Patients at high risk are usually candidates for this procedure.
CABG, or Coronary Artery bypass Graft, is a procedure that restores the oxygen and nutrient supply to the heart muscle. The VSD/ASD close is next. It is recommended that the surgery be performed to fix the ventricular septal and atrial septal defects.
Cabrol treatment involves replacing the ascending aorta with a composite transplant. The procedure also involves the direct reimplantation and interposition of coronary vessels. This procedure is used as an emergency backup in the event of Bentall and button failures.
Closed heart surgery addresses problems in major blood vessels such as the pulmonary arteries and aorta. The surgery usually includes pulmonary artery repair, vascular division and shunt procedures.
The process of narrowing the aorta for adults is called coarctoplasty. A self-expandable, expandable stent can be used in this procedure. Pre-dilatation can be done in balloon coarctoplasty. This involves the embedding self-expandable Nitinol stents with a balloon.
Complex CABG – pump off is also known as an off-pump procedure. It is very similar to the conventional CABG technique. The bloodless surgical field is balanced by an on-pump or off-pump CABG procedure. A treatment for an aortic condition that prevents bypass is called an off-pump CABG.
Double valve replacement is performed under general anesthesia. It involves the replacement of both the mitral and aortic valves. Patients with congenital or acquired heart disease will be referred to this treatment.
Electrophysiology Study, or EPS, involves inserting electrodes into your heart. The electrodes are used to monitor abnormalities in conduction and rhythm of the heart. Radiofrequency Catheter Abslation, or RFA, is used to deliver radiofrequency electric energy. To remove the abnormal focus, the energy causes superficial burns.
Fontan is a procedure that is performed on children with single ventricles in their hearts. This treatment involves diversion of vein blood from the IVC (Inferior Vena Cava) and SVC(Superior Vena Cava) to the pulmonary vessels.
The minimally invasive cardiac surgery, also called heart port surgery, is a safe and effective method for performing cardiac surgery. Because it requires only a small incision, this procedure is becoming more popular than traditional open heart surgery. To access the heart, the slit must be made on the right side.
These types of heart surgery include minimally invasive direct coronary bypass, Valve repair, replacement, Valve repair, and replacement, and Off-pump coronary bypass.
ICD Combo Device, an implant device that monitors the heart rhythms and detects fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia, is placed in the abdomen or chest.
Mini Sternotomy can be used to perform minimally invasive surgery. Mini Sternotomy is a smaller incision than standard sternotomy. This procedure causes less trauma to the chest walls tissues. Carotid endarterectomy is performed by Mini Sternotomy. This procedure reduces stroke risk by narrowing the carotid or correcting stenosis.
The Norwood procedure can be used to create a functional systemic circuit in patients with hypoplastic left-heart syndrome. There are three stages to this procedure. The first is when the right ventricle becomes the main ventricle, which pumps blood to the lungs. After the aorta is connected to the main lung artery, the main pulmonary arterial is cut off. A shunt is then placed between the two to provide blood.
The shunt is disengaged in the second stage to allow the pulmonary cava to be connected to the superior vasculature. It is a vein carrying deoxygenated blood, which will send half the blood to the lungs. Fontan operation is the third, and final stage.
A pacemaker is a small device that is placed in the abdomen and chest to control irregularities in the heart rhythms. The double chamber pacemaker implant has two leads. One goes into the right atrium (upper) and one into the ventricle (right bottom). The heart beats at a normal rate when the device is connected to electrical pulses.
The pacemaker has one lead and is connected to the one chamber of your heart. This allows you to treat an abnormal heartbeat.
A PDA device closure involves inserting a thin tube (a catheter) through a blood vessel into the heart. The catheter is then threaded into the PDA (Patent Ductus Arteriosus). The catheter is then removed after it has been successfully placed.
ASD/AV/VSD Repair – Atrioventricular (AV), Canal Defect, Ventricular Septal Defect all form defects in the heart. This can be corrected by closing the holes in the atrial and ventricular septas with a patch. Also, reconstruction of the common Atrioventricular Valve is possible.
MV Repair: This procedure is used for mitral regurgitation patients. This involves removing or reshaping the tissue, patching or separating the fused flaps, and/or repairing the holes or tears in the valve.
Pediatric TOF is a rare condition that is caused by a combination four defects: ventricular septal defect (ventricular septal defect), right ventricular hypertrophy, and overriding the aorta. To improve blood flow to the lungs, surgeons perform TOF (Tetralogy of Fallot). The surgery involves either replacing the pulmonary valves or widening the pulmonary blood vessels.
Conduits are supported by stents and cover the heart membrane. Conduits are useful for children and can be used to treat congenital heart disease. The Atrial switch operation, a surgical procedure that adjusts the arteries to their exact location, is performed. To treat the Atrioventricular canal defect, a procedure that uses only one or two patches to close the hole is used.
TAPVC is the name given to a condition where the pulmonary veins drain blood into the right atrium. Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Connection is open-heart surgery to connect the pulmonary veins to left atrium. This also corrects the atrial septal defect.
VSD repair is recommended to treat septal defects in the heart. This surgical procedure involves the closure of the wound with special stitches or patches. Before the procedure can be performed, general anesthesia is administered to the patient.
