Dr Shiva Prasad’s cardiac centre is one of the few centres that offer radial artery procedures. We adopt latest technology and customize the treatment based on the patient’s medical condition for successful results. Some of the treatments provided:
Primary PTCA (Stenting Procedure for Heart Attack)
All forms of Complex Angioplasty (Left main stem Stenting, graft angioplasty and bifurcation lesions)
Rotablation for calcified lesions
All forms of coronary angioplasty and stenting
IVUS, OCT and pressure wire study
Cardiac catheterization (cath) is an invasive procedure involving insertion of a catheter (a narrow tube) into the heart and major blood vessel to diagnose and treat any abnormalities. The procedure may either be performed by entering from the femoral artery (in the groin) or through the radial artery (in the wrist). However, the radial route holds promising with faster recovery.
Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA):
A PCI is a minimally invasive cath lab procedure to open up the narrowing in the coronary artery and place a stent to ensure free blood flow. In angioplasty, a balloon is inflated at the blocked area to stretch the artery and push the plaque to the side in order to restore blood flow. The interventional cardiologist thoroughly studies the patient and the medical condition before deciding the need for these procedures.
24×7 heart emergencies
Heart diseases and events remain the leading cause of sudden deaths worldwide. Events such as cardiac arrest, heart attack, heart failure are heart/cardiac emergencies which need immediate attention. Dr Shiva Prasad’s cardiac centre offers 24×7 heart emergency care facilities for heart and vascular events. The centre is equipped with state of the art cathlab and critical care support to take care of cardiac emergencies.
