Invasive Cardiology

It is a procedure that uses medicated dye(Usually containing iodine) and x ray pictures to detect blockages in coronary arteries(Main heart arteries ).

It is a procedure of opening blocked coronary arteries to restore normal blood flow to heart muscle.. It is done by inserting a thin tube via leg or arm artery to heart, then contrast in put to detect blocked artery and then artery is opened by using small balloon and stent is placed.

It is a surgical procedure to restore normal blood flow to blocked coronary artery. It is indicated….

Blood flows through different chambers (parts) of heart through valves. Sometimes people may have either congenital or acquired valve defects, requiring specialised valve repair or replacement surgery.

Valve Stenosis means constriction of valves leading to obstructin in blood flow through heart. Valvotomy means taking incision at the edges of commisure formed between two or three valves.

Electrophysiology treatment and heart rhythm management using electrical devices
Pacing and rhythm control devices, including pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defebrillators (ICDs) are used to treat cardiac arrhythmias and other disturbances of heart’s rhythm. These electrical devices send and receive electrical signals to and from the heart to regulate heartbeat and is life saving in many situations.

Non Invasive Cardiology

It is ultrasonography of heart. It provides valuable information of heart like size and shape of heart, pumping capacity and location, location and extent of tissue damage, cardiac output, ejection fraction and diastolic function. Electrocardiography can also pick up cardiomyopathies.

A stress test is done to determine your risk of having heart disease.

This test is done to assess how well the heart works under stress. The stress can be either triggered by either exercise or dobutamine (medicine).
