DEPARTMENT OF CARDIOLOGY- CENTER OF EXCELLENCE

The Department provides intensive cardiac care, diagnosis & treatment of cardiac ailments. It has latest technologies for cardiac catheterization and angiography, Angioplasty, Valvuloplasty, Pacemaker and Defibrillator implantation, 3 D Echo, Holter, Stress Testing, Electrophysiological Studies, etc. The hospitalís warm ambience, dedicated & well qualified doctors, cheerful & pleasing support staff, modern outpatient facility and dedicated inpatient care ensures that the patient is in the best hands at National Heart Institute.

National Heart Institute has been a leader in the treatment of all forms of heart diseases for more than 34 years. Department of cardiology is headed by Dr. Vinod Sharma. Department repertoire include:

  • Cardiac Catheterization and Coronary Angiography
  • Angioplasty and Stenting
  • Carotid angiography and intervention
  • Peripheral intervention
  • Stress testing and noninvasive cardiac risk stratification
  • Pacemakers and defibrillators
  • Echocardiography
  • Interventional cardiology is a branch of the medical speciality of cardiology that deals specifically with the catheter based treatment of structural heart diseases
  • A large number of procedures can be performed on the heart by catheterization. This most commonly involves the insertion of a sheath into the femoral artery (in practice, any large peripheral artery or vein) and cannulating the heart under X-ray visualization (fluoroscopy, a real-time x-ray).
  • Angioplasty (PTCA, Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty) - for coronary atherosclerosis
  • Valvuloplasty - dilation of narrowed cardiac valves (usually mitral, aortic or pulmonary)
  • Procedures for congenital heart disease - insertion of occluders for ventricular or atrial septal defects, occlusion of patent ductus arteriosus, angioplasty of great vessels etc.
  • Emergency angioplasty and stenting of occluded coronary vessels in the setting of acute heart attacks (Primary PTCA), Coronary Thrombectomy - a procedure performed to remove thrombus (blood clot) from blood vessels.
  • Carotid angioplasty
  • Insertion of temporary and permanent pacemaker including dual chamber pacing
  • Insertion of AICD (Internal Defibrillator), Radio frequency ablation for irregular rhythms of the heart.
  • Invasive procedures of the heart to treat arrhythmias are performed by specialists in clinical cardiac electrophysiology.
