Cardiology Treatments in India
Cardiology is the study and treatment of disorders of the heart; it is a medical specialty which is involved in the care of all things associated with the heart and the arteries. A cardiologist is not the same as a cardiac surgeon – the cardiac surgeon opens the chest and performs heart surgery, a cardiologist, on the other hand, carries out tests and procedures, such as angioplasty.
Cardiology treatment in India is at very advanced stage to get rid of any of the heart defects at affordable cost. Benefits such as best hospitals with latest technology and top certified doctors, many foreigners have come down here in order to solve their trouble of heart diseases.
Alphine Life Solutions for many years have played an important role in arranging Cardiology treatments in India for many Foreign patients . We are associated with a number of top-notch hospitals and have achieved high success rate.
Non-Invasive Cardiology and Diagnostic
Non-invasive cardiology and Diagnostic focus on the detection and treatment of heart disease, using external tests—rather than instruments inserted into the body—to evaluate and diagnose cardiac disorders. Patients with a history of heart disease, suspected valve disease or chest pain with unknown cause may be referred by their physician for a non-invasive evaluation. The evaluations are as under
- TransEsophageal Echocardiogram (TEE)
- TransThoracic Echocardiogram (TTE)
- Exercise Stress Test (Regular ETT)
- Exercise Stress Test with Nuclear Imaging
- Pharmacological Stress Test
- Stress Echocardiogram
- Dobutamine Stress Echocardiogram
- Saline agitation aka Bubble Study
- Coronary Coronary Computed Tomography Angiogram (CTA)
- Implantable Cardioverter/Defibrillators and Pacemaker Interrogation – See more at:
The subspecialty of cardiology that focuses on diagnostic or therapeutic cardiovascular procedures–eg, coronary angiography, imaging and nonimaging total stress tests–thallium stress test, SPECT, gated blood pool studies, echocardiography, coronary artery revascularization procedures–stenting, percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty. These procedures need the insertion of instruments through the skin, into the body of the patient for treating the disease
Interventional cardiology is a branch of cardiology that deals specifically with the catheter based treatment of structural heart diseases. Interventional cardiology refers to various non-surgical procedures for treating cardiovascular disease. Interventional cardiologists use catheters – thin, flexible tubes – to get inside blood vessels for diagnostic tests or to repair damaged vessels or other heart structures, often avoiding the need for surgery.
Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG)
A coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) also known as corony artery bypass surgery is a surgical procedure used to treat coronary heart disease. It diverts blood around narrowed or clogged parts of the major arteries to improve blood flow and oxygen supply to the heart.
Heart Valve Replacement
Heart valve surgery is used to repair or replace diseased heart valves.Blood that flows between different chambers of your heart must flow through a heart valve. Blood that flows out of your heart into large arteries must also flow through a heart valve.These valves open up enough so that blood can flow through. They then close, keeping blood from flowing backward. In heart valve surgery, the surgeon repairs or replaces the affected heart valves.
Heart valve diseases that may be treated by heart valve surgery include:
Pediatric Cardiothoracic Surgery
Heart surgery in children is done to repair heart defects a child is born with (congenital heart defects) and heart diseases a child gets after birth that need surgery. The surgery is needed for the child’s wellbeing.
Cardiology Robotic Surgery
Robotic cardiac surgery is a form of heart surgery performed through very small incisions in the chest. With the use of tiny instruments and robotic devices, surgeons are able to perform several types of heart surgery in a way that is much less invasive than other types of heart surgery. Robotic surgeries have been used for a number of different heart-related procedures, including valve surgery, coronary artery bypass, cardiac tissue ablation, heart defect repair, and tumor removal.Robotic Surgery involves less pain, scarring and risk that are otherwise involved.
Robotic Surgery in India
Robotic surgery is a method to perform surgery using very small tools attached to a robotic arm. The surgeon controls the robotic arm with a computer. Robotic surgery, computer-assisted surgery, and robotically-assisted surgery are terms for technological developments that use robotic systems to aid in surgical procedures. Robotically-assisted surgery was developed to overcome the limitations of pre-existing minimally-invasive surgical procedures and to enhance the capabilities of surgeons performing open surgery. Major advances aided by surgical robots have been remote surgery, minimally invasive surgery and unmanned surgery. Due to robotic use, the surgery is done with precision, miniaturization, smaller incisions; decreased blood loss, less pain, and quicker healing time. Articulation beyond normal manipulation and three-dimensional magnification helps resulting in improved ergonomics. Due to these techniques there is a reduced duration of hospital stays, blood loss, transfusions, and use of pain medication. The existing open surgery technique has many flaws like limited access to surgical area, long recovery time, long hours of operation, blood loss, surgical scars and marks.
Types of Robotic Assisted Surgeries.
types of Robotic Surgeries are
Supervisory-Controlled systems (Computer Assisted Surgery): Computer-assisted surgery (CAS) represents a surgical concept and set of methods, that use computer technology for surgical planning, and for guiding or performing surgical interventions.
