As heart disease becomes more and more prevalent across the country, our need for vigilance and an expansion of medical facilities becomes equally critical. India has the highest number of cardiovascular patients in the world, and this is why we need access to the best facilities. We, at the BS HeartCare Centre and Multispeciality Hospital, are taking all the necessary steps for it, and go beyond the boundaries to ensure that heart disease is taken seriously and receive the right care for it. We have a cardiologist present within the hospital premises around the clock, because heart problems know no hours and can strike anytime. We are the only hospital in the area that guarantees this facility.
We have a team of highly qualified, skilled and experienced cardiologists who attend to multiple patients every day, and people travels kilometers and kilometers to get a consultation with them. We have the best quality diagnostic imaging equipment that our doctors need to perform diagnostic tests and assess the needs and requirements of the patients, and give necessary advice. We perform coronary angioplasty, coronary angiography, stent insertion, and also install temporary and permanent pacemakers. We use the latest, cutting edge technologies, and our doctors are highly skilled in handling them. As our name suggests, cardiovascular treatment is our speciality, and we have some of the most highly specialized and sought after doctors in the country at our hospital. Our patients’ health is our priority, and we put their needs at the forefront by insisting on regular check ups to ensure that our patients are progressing and healing.
We perform the following procedures at our hospital:
A coronary angiogram is a procedure that uses contrast dyes and X-rays to get a picture of the heart’s blood vessels. This test is carried out to determine the restrictions in blood flow going to the heart. Patients are awake during the procedure as they need to follow the instructions of the doctor, and are given an anaesthetic for the same. The procedure is routinely performed at our hospital, and carried out with cardiac catheterization. If blockages are detected, then the doctor will recommend a suitable course of action, which is usually coronary angioplasty accompanied by stent insertion, which can also be done at BS HeartCare and Multispeciality Hospital.
Coronary Angioplasty And Stent Insertion
A coronary angioplasty is a procedure used to widen blocked or narrowed coronary arteries, which are the main arteries in the body. Coronary arteries may get blocked over time due to accumulation of fatty material due to lifestyle, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, inflammation, smoking, diabetes and obesity, to name a few causes. Blockage of such kind can lead to the development of symptoms such as angina, which is chest pain, and can eventually lead to a heart attack or stroke. A coronary angioplasty is performed to restore normal blood flow to the heart muscle by using a balloon and is a routine medical procedure that our cardiologists are highly adept at performing. Often, a stent also needs to be inserted. A stent is a small mesh tube that is placed in the newly widened part of the artery, and holds it up and lowers the risk of the artery re-narrowing. Stents are sometimes coated with medicines that are slowly and continuously released into the artery to prevent it from becoming blocked again.
Temporary And Fixed Pacemaker
A pacemaker is a small device that is implanted in the heart to send electrical impulses to the heart muscle to maintain a suitable heart rate or to stimulate the lower chambers of the heart. It is done to prevent a heart from beating too slowly, and restore normal function. Pacemakers only work when they are needed, that is, when the heart is not pumping blood normal, and are otherwise dormant. It is implanted through a surgical procedure, and different types of pacemakers are implanted depending on the patient’s condition. A temporary pacemaker is implanted when the patient has a slow heartbeat after a heart attack, surgery or medication overdose, but the heartbeat is otherwise expected to recover. It is removed when the heart resumes normal function, after running extensive diagnostic tests. A fixed pacemaker may be implanted permanently to correct a chronic (long term) slow or irregular heartbeat or to help treat heart failure. Our doctors specialize in both these procedures, so our patients can rest assured that they are in safe hands.
