Cardiology Surgery Treatment & Procedures | Kauvery Hospital

Electrocardiography (ECG or EKG) is the process of recording the electrical activities of the heart over a period of time using electrodes placed on the skin.

Treadmill Test (TMT) is a test used in Cardiology to measure the heart’s ability to respond to external stress in a controlled clinical environment.

Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) measures blood pressure at regular intervals. It is believed to be able to reduce elevated BP during the examination process due to nervousness and anxiety caused by being in a clinical setting.

An echocardiogram, often referred to as a cardiac echo or simply an echo, is a sonogram of the heart.

A Holter monitor is a portable device for continuously monitoring various electrical activity of the cardiovascular system for at least 24 hours (often for two weeks at a time).

A transesophageal echocardiogram is an alternative way to perform an echocardiogram. A specialized probe containing an ultrasound transducer at its tip is passed into the patient's esophagus.

A stress echocardiogram, also known as a stress echo, uses ultrasound imaging of the heart to assess the wall motion in response to physical stress.

A CT Coronary Calcium score is used as a predictor of future adverse cardiac events. It also has a small role in evaluating possible angina prior to the CT/Catheter Coronary angiograms.

Computed tomography or heart CT scan (CT coronary angiogram) is a procedure used to assess the extent of occlusion in the coronary arteries, usually in order to diagnose coronary artery disease.

A cardiac MRI is a painless imaging test that uses radio waves, magnets, and a computer to create detailed pictures of your heart. Cardiac MRI can provide information on the type and severity of heart disease.

Coronary angiography is a procedure that uses a special dye (contrast material) and x-rays to see how blood flows through the arteries in your heart.

Angioplasty is a minimally invasive, endovascular procedure to widen narrowed or obstructed arteries or veins, typically to treat arterial atherosclerosis.

Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) is a diagnostic test. This test uses sound waves to see inside blood vessels. It is useful for evaluating the coronary arteries that supply the heart.

Optical coherence tomography is the latest technology, beyond conventional contrast guided angiography, used in excellent imaging of the coronary arteries from inside the artery using near-infra-red light source delivered via an optical fibre placed which is positioned inside the artery of interest.

A rotablator is a small drill with a burr on the end that is coated in diamond dust. The rotablator is small enough to fit in an artery and strong enough to drill through the calcified plaque - but is designed not to damage the artery walls.

Fractional flow reserve (FFR) Assessment involves determining the ratio between maximum achievable blood flow in a diseased coronary artery and the theoretical maximum flow in a normal coronary artery.

A pacemaker is an electrically-charged medical device. You need a pacemaker if your heart is pumping too quickly or slowly. Your surgeon implants it under your skin to help manage irregular heartbeats called arrhythmias.

An implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) or automated implantable cardioverter defibrillator (AICD) is a device implantable inside the body, able to perform cardioversion, defibrillation, and pacing of the heart.

A biventricular pacemaker is a special pacemaker used for cardiac resynchronization therapy in heart failure patients.

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a new and innovative approach to the treating severe aortic stenosis (narrowing of the aortic valve opening).

Beating heart bypass surgery is also called Off Pump Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery (OPCAB). Both OPCAB and conventional on-pump surgery restores blood flow to the heart.

In minimally invasive heart surgery, cardiac surgeons perform heart surgery through small incisions in the right side of your chest, as an alternative to open-heart surgery.

Valve repair can usually be done on congenital valve defects and has a good success record with treating mitral valve defects.

Brain aneurysm repair is surgery to correct an aneurysm. This is a weak area in a blood vessel wall that causes the vessel to bulge or balloon out and sometimes burst (rupture).

The ablation of atrial fibrillation is an invasive technique that is used in treatment of atrial fibrillation one of the most common cardiac arrhythmias. Ablation is the removal or melting away of an unwanted structure or tissue.
