Interventional Cardiology

Interventional Cardiology

Our expert interventional cardiologists have immense experience in performing the latest interventional cardiology procedures ranging from angioplasties to TAVI/TAVR.

Primary PTCA/Angioplasty

An angioplasty, or Percutaneous Coronary Intervention, is a procedure used to restore blood flow through a blocked artery. This is performed using a catheter threaded to the heart, into the blocked Coronary Artery. The interventional cardiologists then inflates the balloon to push back the obstructing plaque and deploys a stent to open up the blocked coronary artery. GGHC interventional cardiologists use the latest drug eluting stents to offer the best possible long term outcomes for the patients.

TAVI/TAVR

Trans-Aortic Valve Replacement or Trans-Aortic Valve Implantation, is a percutaneous (key hole) heart valve procedure in which a new artificial aortic valve is threaded through the groin artery to the heart and positioned to replace a severely diseased aortic valve (main valve of the heart leading to the body).

Balloon Mitral Valvotomy (BMV)

Mitral Stenosis occurs when the mitral valve orifice is narrowed, commonly due to rheumatic heart disease. A BMV is a procedure in which a balloon cathether is threaded to the groin blood vessel across the narrowed mitral valve and inflated to widen the mitral valve opening. BMV is recommended for severe mitral stenosis and our cardiologists at GGHC are highly skilled at performing this procedure.

Electro Physiology & Radio Frequency Ablation (EP & RFA)

A range of cardiac arrhythmias occur in patients leading to irregular fast heart beat, some of which can even have life threatening consequences. An Electrophysiology study is a test used to assess how electric signals move through the heart. It can be used to treat cardiac arrhythmias by radio frequency ablation (RFA). During this procedure, a thin wire selectively targets abnormal electrical circuits in the heart, and ablates them using radio frequency pulses, correcting the arrhythmia.

Cardiac Pacemaker Implantation

Significant heart block occurs in patients when electrical signals that stimulates the heart is unable to pass from the upper chambers (atria) to the lower chambers of the heart (ventricles). This is treated by the implantation of a pacemaker – a small device placed just beneath the collar bone and connected to the heart. They generate electrical impulses to stimulate the heart and make it beat.

Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD)

Advanced pacemakers can sense the heart rhythm, detect life threatening arrhythmias and even treat them by giving a shock (defibrillation). This shock restarts the heart back in normal rhythm. Our expert team of interventional cardiologists have one of the largest experiences in a variety of cardiac pacemakers, CRT devices and in ICD implantation.
