With a passion to serve humanity we strive to offer a modern, scientific and comprehensive cardiac-care service to the community. We are committed to treating and preventing the number one killer of the modern world – heart disease.
Coronary angiography is performed to detect obstruction in the coronary arteries of the heart. During the procedure a catheter (thin flexible tube) is inserted into an artery in your arm or groin and then threaded carefully into the heart. The blood vessels of the heart are then studied by injection of contrast media through the catheter. A rapid succession of X-rays (fluoroscopy) is taken to view blood flow.
Coronary angioplasty is accomplished using a balloon-tipped catheter inserted through an artery in the groin or arm to dilate the coronary artery. Coronary artery disease occurs when cholesterol plaque builds up (atherosclerosis) in the walls of the arteries of the heart. Angioplasty is successful in opening coronary arteries in 90% of patients. 40% of patients with successful coronary angioplasty may develop recurrent narrowing at the site of balloon inflation.
System used for the diagnosis and interventional procedures on the heart. The system is bi-plane image acquisition system. The units are equipped with image intensifier image receptors. Software and hardware are optimized for viewing the heart.
