Angioplasty is one of the least invasive surgeries and treatment methods in Cardiology. It is less traumatic and complicated than other bypass surgeries. The procedure involves the simple technology of imaging wherein a small catheter or a stent is inserted in blood vessels that are either blocked or are too narrow for an interrupted blood flow. A wire mesh tube keeps the vessels open for a continuous blood flow. A specialized team of doctors working with MediMantra will not only help you prepare for the procedure but will also take care of your medication schedule.
Almost all the AHV surgeries in India are done either to repair or to replace the irrecoverably damaged valves. Surgeons opt for a valve repair surgery when the defects can be rectified through medicines or through simple reshaping of the valves for better blood flow in the body. And in medical cases involving severe damage to the left-sided valves of the heart, valve replacement surgeries are done. Artificial valves made of carbon, metal or plastic are inserted into the heart to treat the valve issues that are life-threatening and can even result in a sudden heart failure. After an AHV surgery, it is important to be in constant contact with the surgeon as even the mildest of symptoms can affect the recovery process.
Coronary artery diseases are basically caused when the blood and oxygen flow to the heart muscles get limited because of the narrowing arteries. However, the process of hardening of the arteries can be slowed down by regular angioplasty, proper medication and also by bringing in changes in lifestyle. Nevertheless, a bypass surgery becomes inevitable when these treatments do not work out.
A bypass surgery deals with creating a new path for the blood and oxygen to flow to the heart without any interruption. The doctor/surgeon uses a healthy vein from a different part of the body, generally from the wrist, leg or from the chest. This vein is then attached to the coronary artery of the patient near the blocked vein – this procedure allows the blood to bypass the hardened/narrowed path.
A heart transplant is the last resort for patients who have tried every treatment for their coronary heart issues. During a heart transplant, a surgeon removes the infected heart from the patient and replaces it with the one donated by a deceased person. A heart failure is usually associated with viral infections of heart muscles, damaged heart valves, congenital heart defects and coronary heart diseases. When a heart transplant is the only thing that can save patients experiencing a heart failure, only 30% of all patients are able to return to their daily chores; the other 70% are asked to bring down their activities heavily to minimize the risk of another heart failure.
Pacemakers are small devices operated by a battery and are recommended to patients who require their heart to beat with a regular rhythm. Once the device is inserted in your body, the wires are connected to the heart with the help of tiny wires, and regular, timely impulses flow through the wires to the heart enabling it to beat at regular intervals. For patients who experience irregular or slow heartbeat, the device replaces the functions of the natural pacemaker in the body. One can also opt for temporary pacemakers that are not surgically implanted in the body – once the regular heartbeat is established, the device is removed.
Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) is concerned with the treatment of the medical conditions that cause varicose veins – the treatment procedure goes deeper than just the symptoms. Arguably the safest treatment method involves a small catheter that is inserted in the diseased veins of the patient, RFA is quite impulsive and has a recovery time of less than an hour – the patient also doesn’t require to be hospitalized. During the treatment, a small incision is done through which a catheter is inserted. It delivers constant heat to the veins causing them to close and collapse. This helps the surgeons to redirect the blood from healthy veins while the collapsed ones are absorbed in the tissues naturally.
