Cardiology

Overview

The BMRC Hospital’s cardiology department specializes in advanced diagnosis and treatment procedures for cardiac diseases and conditions. With integrated healthcare approach and a dedicated panel of highly experienced Cardiologists, anaesthetists, perfusionists, nursing and other paramedical staff, we aim to deliver comprehensive care to patients suffering from heart ailments.

We have dedicated cath lab, modular operation theatres, modular ICCU, ITU, CTVS ITU, cardiac step down ward to ensure safe treatment and finally ambulances for comfortable transportation.

The common symptoms of cardiac disease include chest pain, shortness of breath, Pain that spreads to the arm, Pain in neck, jaw, throat, upper abdomen or back, Cold sweat, Weakness, Nausea, Fatigue, Sweating, Slow Heartbeat, Palpitations, Swelling in legs, feet, and ankles. Other symptoms in infants and children are poor weight gain, cyanosis, fast breathing, poor feeding, and recurring lung infections. 

Treatments & Procedures

The department of cardiology at BMRC Hospital provides best cardiac services that include-

Therapeutic and Interventional Procedures

  • Coronary Angiogram.
  • Coronary Angioplasty is also called percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for the treatment of coronary artery disease.
  • Complex PCI – bifurcation, CTO, Image and physiology guided PCI, Rotablation, and IABP.
  • Coronary thrombectomy which involves removing a blood clot from the coronary arteries.
  • Peripheral vascular disease intervention which involves the other arteries like renal, carotids, subclavian, mesenteric, femoral or distal lower limb vessels.
  • Aortic Interventions - TEVAR, EVAR, and coarctation stenting.
  • Percutaneous valve repair - Balloon mitral valvotomy, Balloon aortic valvotomy and Balloon pulmonary valvotomy.
  • Percutaneous valve replacement – Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVI), Transcatheter pulmonary valve replacement and Transcatheter mitral valve replacement.
  • Congenital heart defect correction: like atrial and ventricular septal defects- device closures and device closure of patent ductus arteriosus (ASD, VSD & PDA).
  • Structural heart interventions - LA appendage closure, paravalvular leak closure, ruptured sinus of Valsalva device closure, and Post-MI VSR device closure.
  • Bailout percutaneous pediatric interventions - Balloon atrial septostomy, and PDA stenting.
  • Cardiac catheterization with hemodynamic assessment for congenital heart disease, cardiomyopathies, valve lesions, and pulmonary hypertension.
  • Cardiac pacemakers such as single chamber and dual chamber.
  • Implantable Cardioverter (ICD/ AICD).
  • Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT).
