Cardiac Procedures

Coronary angioplasty

A coronary angioplasty is a procedure used to widen blocked or narrowed coronary arteries (the main blood vessels supplying the heart). The term “angioplasty” means using a balloon to stretch open a narrowed or blocked artery.

Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG)

Coronary artery bypass surgery, also known as coronary artery bypass graft surgery, and colloquially heart bypass or bypass surgery, is a surgical procedure to restore normal blood flow to an obstructed coronary artery.

Congenital Heart Disease

A congenital heart defect (CHD), also known as a congenital heart anomaly or congenital heart disease, is a problem in the structure of the heart that is present at birth. Signs and symptoms depend on the specific type of problem.

Atrial Septal defect (ASD) Repair

A birth defect that causes a hole in the wall between the heart’s upper chambers (atria). Small ASDs may close on their own. Medium-to-large-sized ASDs may need closure by device or surgical correction.

Heart Failure Treatment

A chronic condition in which the heart doesn’t pump blood as well as it should. Treatments can include eating less salt, limiting fluid intake and taking prescription medication. In some cases a defibrillator (Defibrillation is a treatment for life-threatening cardiac dysrhythmias, specifically ventricular fibrillation (VF) and non-perfusing ventricular tachycardia (VT). A defibrillator delivers a dose of electric current (often called a countershock) to the heart.) or pacemaker (A pacemaker insertion is the implantation of a small electronic device that is usually placed in the chest (just below the collarbone) to help regulate slow electrical problems with the heart. )may be implanted.

Valve Repair – Balloon Mitral Valvuloplasty (BMV)

A balloon procedure to open up a narrowed mitral valve

Valve Replacement

Valve replacement surgery is the replacement of one or more of the heart valves with either an artificial heart valve or a bioprosthesis. It is an alternative to valve repair.

Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) Repair

A ventricular septal defect (VSD) is a defect in the ventricular septum, the wall dividing the left and right ventricles of the heart.
