The Interventional Cardiology department at Charak Memorial Hospital is a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment, and management of cardiovascular diseases through minimally invasive procedures. Led by a team of highly skilled interventional cardiologists, the department offers advanced and innovative techniques to provide comprehensive care for patients with heart-related conditions.

Key Services and Specialties:

  1. Coronary Angiography and Angioplasty: The department specializes in performing diagnostic coronary angiography to assess blockages or narrowing in the heart's arteries. Additionally, they offer angioplasty procedures, including balloon angioplasty and stent placement, to open blocked arteries and restore blood flow to the heart.
  2. Percutaneous Coronary Interventions (PCI): The interventional cardiologists are experts in performing complex percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI), such as treating chronic total occlusions (CTOs) and bifurcation lesions, using advanced techniques and specialized equipment.
  3. Structural Heart Interventions: The department offers minimally invasive procedures for structural heart diseases, including transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) for aortic stenosis, mitral valve repair, and closure of atrial septal defects and patent foramen ovale (PFO).
  4. Peripheral Vascular Interventions: The team provides minimally invasive treatments for peripheral artery disease, such as angioplasty, stenting, and atherectomy, to improve blood flow and alleviate symptoms in the legs and other extremities.
  5. Electrophysiology Studies and Ablations: In collaboration with cardiac electrophysiologists, the department performs diagnostic electrophysiology studies and ablation procedures to treat various heart rhythm disorders, including atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, and other arrhythmias.

The Interventional Cardiology department at Charak Memorial Hospital is equipped with cutting-edge catheterization laboratories, advanced imaging technologies, and state-of-the-art equipment to ensure precise and safe interventional procedures. The team works closely with other cardiovascular specialists, such as cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, and vascular surgeons, to provide comprehensive and integrated care for patients with complex cardiovascular conditions.
