Percutaneous
Percutaneous Coronary Intervention
Under an e a guiding technique called fluoroscopy, the interventional cardiology passess / pushes a device mounted on an intra – luminal vascular wire to the identified area of vessel disease and performs a pre – determined curative technique usually to unblock a vessel blocked by a cholesterol plaque / thrombus i.e clot. Severe maneuvers can be performed this way, and include the following: –

Needle fibrinolysisDuring this manouever, a clot – breaking drug is directly injected at a clot obstructing the vessel so as to unblock the vessel. This is performed within thirty minutes of occurance of heart attack or myocardial infarction / heart attack.
The following techniques are performed at the hospital.

Cutting ballon angioplasty — is a device with three to four longitudinal atherotome blades that produce sharp, clean, longitudinal incisions, leaving the interincisional segments of the untreated segment intact.
Excimer Laser Angioplasty [ELCA] — The excimer laser produces monochromatic light energy to cause ablation / targeted burning of plaque by generating of heat and shock waves.
Imtracoronary stent Revascularization [ISR]: – In this technique, a small hollow metallic vessel in – dwelling tube is mounted on a catheter and placed inside a coronary / heart vessel in an identified specific position of obstruction so as to re – open or unblock the vessel. We offer both Bare Metal Stent {BMS} and Drug Eluting Stent [DES]

Cardiac Services

Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy
CRT is a method of treatment during which the electronic devices are placed in connection with the heart to:

Correct life-threatening abnormalities of heart rhythm / irregularities in heart beats
Improve the pace / speed with which a diseased slow heart beats
Manage very severe heart failure for which medical treatment has failed

In so doing, CRT improves functional measurements of heart failure i.e decreases New York Heart Association (NYHA), improves quality of life (QoL) scores and exercise tolerance. It also decreases re – hospital admissions and chances of death due to heart failure.
At KHHC, we offer ICD [Intra – Cardiac Device] – based CRT. In this method, pacemaker devices are place in connection with the heart and programmed to resynchronize / correct life – threatening rhythm problems and/or severe heart failure in dysynchrony.
Coronary Care Unit [CCU]
Our 4 bed CCU, provides cardiac intensive care life support services with around the clock close monitoring and case – by – case tailored interventions.

What you need to remember?


The term cardiology is derived from the Greek words ‘cardia’ which refers to the heart and ‘logy’ meaning the study of. Cardiology is the study and treatment of disorders of the heart and the blood vessels. The field includes medical diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, heart failure, valvular heart disease and electrophysiology. A person with heart disease or cardiovascular disease is usually referred to a cardiologist. The cardiology team is highly experienced in diagnosing and treating diseases of the cardiovascular system. The cardiologist advises some tests, and may perform some procedures, such as heart catheterizations, angioplasty, or inserting a pacemaker in order to achieve accurate diagnosis of the problem. There are three main types of cardiology procedures: Invasive, Non-invasive, and Interventional.
Invasive cardiology uses open or minimally-invasive surgery techniques to identify and treat structural or electrical abnormalities within the heart structure. Common types of invasive cardiology include:
• Angioplasty: When plaque clogs the arteries, it becomes difficult for blood to flow normally. Angioplasty inserts a tiny balloon into the clogged vein and pushes plaque against the walls, allowing for increased blood flow.
• Stenting: Stenting is usually done in conjunction with angioplasty. A cardiac stent is a small metal coil which permanently holds a clogged vein open.
Non-invasive cardiology identifies heart problems without using any needles, fluids, or other instruments inserted into the body. Non-invasive cardiologists utilize techniques such as:
• Nuclear cardiology: A non-invasive study of cardiovascular disorders by means of various types of imaging which may use radioactive elements.
• Echocardiography: The usage of ultrasound waves to create images of the heart and surrounding structures in order to identify how well the heart pumps blood, infections, and structural abnormalities.
• Cardiac electrophysiology: Study and testing of the electrical currents which generate heartbeats.
• Stress tests: Stress testing usually involves exercise which is closely monitored by the cardiologist. These exercises provide information about how a person’s heart performs under physical stress.
• Heart monitors: Heart monitors may also be called a Holter monitor or cardiac event recorder. Heart monitors are essentially tape recorders for your heart’s electrical activity over a set amount of time.
• CT scans: CT scans produce images of the affected area examined by the cardiologist for any heart diseases and atherosclerosis.
Interventional cardiology is a non-surgical technique which uses a catheter – a small, flexible tube – to repair damaged or weakened vessels, narrowed arteries, or other affected parts of the heart structure. Common conditions treated by interventional cardiology include:
• Coronary artery disease: Narrowing of the arteries which supply the heart muscle with blood and oxygen.
• Heart valve disease: Occurs when the valves which control blood flow into the heart’s chambers are not working correctly.
• Peripheral vascular disease: Your heart can also be affected by clogged or hardened veins and arteries in the other parts of your body.


Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy

CRT is a method of treatment during which the electronic devices are placed in connection with the heart to:


Electrocardiogram [ECG]:

The ECG is a plot / sketch of mili – voltage representing the flow of natural electric current thorough the heart muscle – in real time.. It is the main test / tool that helps medical workers detect abnormalities ranging from heart rhythm to structural problems. To perform the test, the doctor places electrodes on the patients skin over their heart to detect electric mili – coltage flow through the heart. The test is painless, quick and easy to perform. At KHHC, we offer both rest and stress ECG tests.


Echocardiography [ECHO]

is a technique of examining heart structure and function using ultra – sound. It is a quick, safe and painless procedure that provides detailed information regarding actual measurements of heart function.


Coronary Angiography

Disease of vessels of the heart e.g Myocardial Infartions / heart attacks are diagnosed by running a dye / radiologically fluorescent substance that is viewed by CT scan to identify areas of obstruction so as to aid the interventionist to unblock the vessels to restore vitality to the diseased heart muscle.
