Cardiac Sciences deals with cardiac functions and the treatment of cardiac diseases. The department helps carry out crucial diagnostic and therapeutic procedures for patients with known or suspected heart disease, ranging from babies to the elderly. This includes noninvasive and invasive evaluation of cardiac problems. A normal heart has two basic functions, electric conduction, dealt by Electrophysiology and blood supply related dealt by Interventional Cardiology.
Aditya Birla Memorial Hospital has a world class institution of cardiology – a forerunner in patient care and treatment in Pune. We house renowned cardiologists in all aspects of cardiac care, offer expert consultation and patient evaluation, as well as the most advanced diagnostic and treatment techniques backed by the latest technology for effective results. Our is fortified with noninvasive laboratories which have two Treadmill Test (stress test) machines and 2D echo machines (departmental andportable versions). Additionally the department also boasts of two Holter monitoring systems (5 channel and 12 lead) in addition to, two Ambulatory BP monitoring systems. We are also well equipped with a Cardiac Catheterization laboratory where invasive procedures are conducted and have a dedicated electrophysiology system and RF laboratory. At Aditya Birla Memorial Hospital we have been effectively performing around 250 procedures per month and are responsible for successfully implanting the First MRI compatible pacemaker in the Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation area, and also undertaking the first 3D mapping and RF ablation at our premises.
‘Coronary Angiography’ is a test that uses dye and special x-rays to show the insides of the coronary arteries. The dye makes the coronary arteries visible on the x-ray picture and helps doctors see blockages in the arteries. While ‘Coronary Angioplasty’ is a procedure used to open narrow or blocked coronary (heart) arteries and restores blood flow to the heart muscle.
The pacemaker is a small metal box weighing 20-50g that is attached to one or more wires, known as pacing leads, which run to the heart. Pacemaker implantation is a procedure to put a pacemaker into the chest in order to help keep the heart beating regular.
BMV is the procedure for mitral stenosis (MS) when valve morphology is feasible and can be attempted in patients with unicommissural calcification.
‘Electrophysiology’ is the cardiology specialty that diagnoses and treats heart arrhythmias or problems related to the heart’s electrical system and Radio frequency ablation (RFA) is a treatment that uses heat to destroy cancer cells.
Interventional Paediatric cardiology mainly involves dilatation of stenotic vessels or valves and occlusion of abnormal communications and can be carried on children with heart problems. The diagnosis is done doing a 2D echo and if the treatment can be done percutaneously, family is counselled regards the pros and cons of the procedure.
Although heart failure is a serious condition that progressively gets worse over time, certain cases can be reversed with treatment. Even when the heart muscle is impaired, there are a number of treatments that can relieve symptoms and stop or slow the gradual worsening of the condition. The goals of heart therapy are to, relieve symptoms and improve quality of life, slow disease progression, reduce the need for emergency room visits and hospitalization and help patients live a healthier and longer life.
Radiofrequency (RF) catheter ablation is the current treatment of choice for several cardiac arrhythmias. It is a noncontact mapping system that can be used to perform single beat high resolution mapping of cardiac arrhythmias (atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia)
