APPLICATION OF THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY TO TREAT CARDIAC CONDITIONS
The application of the advanced technology by the Centre of Excellence for Cardiology, Cardiothoracic & Vascular Surgery at Gleneagles Hospitals is evidenced in the following procedures
INTRAVASCULAR ULTRASOUND: Fractional Flow Reserve (IVUS-FFR) - A medical imaging methodology using a specially designed catheter with a miniaturized ultrasound probe attached to the distal end of the catheter. Fractional Flow Reserve, or FFR, is a guide wire-based procedure that can accurately measure Blood Pressure and flow through a specific part of the Coronary Artery.
ANGIOGRAM: An Angiogram is an X-ray that uses a special dye and camera (Fluoroscopy) to take pictures of the blood flow in an artery or a vein (such as the vena cava).
CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY AND STENTING: Coronary Angioplasty and Stenting is a procedure used to remove the fat or cholesterol clogged in the Coronary Artery of the Heart. This test is also used to widen the narrowed blood vessels for easy flow of blood. A thin plastic sheath is inserted into the artery, sometimes through the groin or the arm and the catheter is passed through the sheath and guided up a blood vessel and then to the arteries surrounding the Heart. A small amount of contrast dye is injected into the blood vessel through the catheter. The dye is used to get a clear picture of the blood vessel on the X-ray when the blood moves through the blood vessel.
Stenting involves the insertion of a short wire mesh tube into the artery through the catheter. It opens the clogged artery and is left there permanently to allow the proper blood flow.
VALVULOPLASTY: Valvuloplasty is the surgical procedure used to open the stenotic or stiff valve in the Heart. The Heart consists of valves between each of the pumping chambers which include the Tricuspid Valve, Pulmonary Valve, Mitral Valve, and Aortic Valve. These valves regulate the blood flow in one direction.
During Valvuloplasty, your surgeon inserts a tiny, narrow hollow tube into the blood vessel in the groin and directs it through the Aorta into the Heart. Once the catheter reaches the affected valve, a balloon present at the tip of the catheter is inflated and then the flaps of the valve are opened. After opening the valves, the surgeon then deflates the balloon and removes the catheter. Thus, Valvuloplasty restores normal blood flow.
PACEMAKER IMPLANTATION: Pacemakers are used in patients with slow Heartbeat. The pacemakers emit electrical impulses when they detect a slow Heart rate in a person. These electrical impulses trigger the Heart to beat, helping it speed up and catch a more regular rhythm.
Pacemakers are implanted during a surgical procedure. The implantation is performed by a doctor who specializes in Heart Rhythm Disorders. Anaesthesia will be given at the site of the incision. Heart rate and Blood Pressure will be monitored throughout the surgery. The wires of the pacemaker are placed into your veins which will directly lead to the Heart and the other end of the wires is attached to the generator. The surgery takes about 2-3 hours to complete.
CORONARY ARTERY BYPASS GRAFT (CABG): A Coronary Artery Bypass Graft is used to treat Coronary Heart Disease where the plaque builds up in the artery causing decreased blood flow. The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia and takes about three to six hours.
During the procedure, the surgeon makes an incision in the centre of the chest and opens the rib cage by performing a sternotomy. A blood vessel or a graft is used to bypass the blocked blood vessel. The surgeon attaches one end of the graft above the blockage and the other end below the blockage. Then, the blood bypasses the blockage and reaches the Heart muscle.
