Cardiac Sciences: Condition & Treatments

Angioplasty

Interventional cardiologists use a catheter, which is a long, thin tube with a small balloon on the tip to perform a ‘Balloon Angioplasty’. They inflate the balloon at the site of the artery blockage in order to flatten or compress the plaque against the artery wall. If the doctor determines that a stent will help keep the artery from closing or re-closing,

Pacemaker Implantation

A pacemaker implantation is a type of surgery that involves the placement of a small electronic device in the chest (just below the collarbone) to stabilise slow electrical problems with the heart (arrhythmia). A pacemaker may be advised to ensure that the heartbeat does not slow to an unsafely low rate.

ECMO

It is a procedure in which blood is pumped outside the body to a heart-lung machine, which removes carbon dioxide and oxygenates the blood before returning it to the patient’s body. Medica is the largest and most advanced ECMO center in Asia. Our experienced specialists have been involved in successful

Heart Bypass Surgery

Just like we use a ‘bypass’ to go around traffic, a heart bypass surgery is done to patients with severe heart blockages. This operation helps create a new route for blood and oxygen to bypass a blockage and reach your heart. Doctors will advise you to get a bypass surgery if you are experiencing these heart conditions.

Heart Valve Replacement Surgery

The replacement of one or more heart valves with an artificial heart valve or a bioprosthesis is known as valve replacement surgery (homograft from human tissue or xenograft e.g. from pig). It’s a viable alternative to valve repair.There are four types of heart valve replacement surgeries.

TAVR

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a minimally invasive heart procedure used to replace an aortic valve that has thickened and cannot fully open (aortic valve stenosis). The aortic valve is situated between the left lower heart chamber (left ventricle) and the main artery of the body (aorta). Blood flow from the heart to the body is reduced if the valve does not open properly

Arrythmia

An arrhythmia is a heart condition that affects the rate or rhythm with which the heart beats. When the electrical impulses that direct and regulate heartbeats fail to function properly, an arrhythmia occurs. The heart beats as a result of this, too quickly (tachycardia) or too slowly (bradycardia). Or too haphazardly (fibrillation) or prematurely (premature contraction).

Heart Failure

It is a long-term condition in which the heart does not pump blood as efficiently as it should. Heart failure can occur when the heart cannot adequately pump (systole) or fill (diastol). Shortness of breath, fatigue, swollen legs, and a rapid heartbeat are all symptoms. Treatment options include eating less salt, drinking less fluid, and taking prescription medication. A defibrillator or pacemaker may be implanted in some cases.

Heart Transplant

Heart transplant is a procedure where a failing heart is replaced with a healthy donor heart. It is usually recommended by doctors when all other forms of treatment – medical, interventional or surgical – have failed. Though it is a complex procedure, the success rates are usually good. The patient would, however, need to work with the clinical and rehab teams in ensuring the success and be willing to make the necessary lifestyle changes
