Heart Surgery and Treatment!
Cardiology is a medical specialty and a branch of internal medicine concerned with disorders of the heart. It deals with the diagnosis and treatment of such conditions as congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, electrophysiology, heart failure and valvular heart disease. Subspecialties of the cardiology field include cardiac electrophysiology, echocardiography, interventional cardiology and nuclear cardiology.

Angiography is a minimally invasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. Angiography uses one of three imaging technologies and, in most cases, a contrast material injection is needed to produce pictures of blood vessels in the body.

- computed tomography (CT)
- magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

Coronary angioplasty, also called percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), is used to open arteries that have been narrowed by atherosclerosis. In this procedure, a catheter is entered into a blood vessel through an incision (usually in the leg or wrist) and is threaded to the heart. This catheter has a collapsed balloon at its tip. When the balloon reaches the targeted area (e.g., blockage), it is inflated to push plaque to the artery walls and widen the artery to improve blood flow. In some cases, the balloon must be inflated and deflated more than one time during the procedure.
The procedure to implant a pacemaker is usually quick. It does not require open-heart surgery, and most people go home within 24 hours. Before the surgery, medication is usually given to make you sleepy and comfortable. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia.
After the implant, there may be a slight bulge visible under the skin where the device is located. The leads are very thin and will not be visible.
Each individual's experience may be different. Talk to your doctor for specific information regarding the implant of a pacemaker.
A balloon valvotomy is a minimally invasive procedure. A doctor uses a thin flexible tube (catheter) that is inserted through an artery in the groin or arm and threaded into the heart. When the tube reaches the narrowed mitral valve, a balloon device located on the tip of the catheter is quickly inflated. The narrowed or fused mitral valve leaflets are separated and stretched open as the balloon presses against them. This process increases the size of the mitral valve opening and allows more blood to flow from the left atrium into the left ventricle.
Dr. Kumar was a Visiting Electrophysiology Fellow (SpR Grade) at St. George Hosp, London and St. Helier Hosp, London from July 2003 to November 2003. He also served as a Specialist Interventional Cardiologist at Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Centre in Kerala from June 1999 to April 2003.
The electrophysiology team for Heart and Vascular Care is at the forefront of heart disease treatment with the latest advances in technology, and a world-class team of physicians, nurses, and support staff leading these efforts. Electrophysiology works closely with a multi-disciplinary group of cardiac specialists to help design the best treatment program for each patient.
