Cardiac Surgery , Heart Institute
Our highly experienced and qualified doctors and surgeons from various cardiac subspecialities diagnose and treat all types of heart diseases.
Coronary artery disease is a disease of the arteries of the heart, caused primarily because of the development of plaque on the inner walls of the arteries. This plaque restricts the blood flow to the heart and can also rupture, leading to a heart attack or sudden death.
Myocardial infarction (MI), colloquially known as "heart attack," is caused by decreased or complete cessation of blood flow to a portion of the myocardium.
Congenital heart disease is one or more problems with the heart's structure that exist since birth. Congenital means that you're born with the condition
Heart valve disease occurs when one or more of the heart valves do not open or close properly.
Cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle that makes it harder for the heart to pump blood to the rest of the body. Cardiomyopathy can lead to heart failure. The main types of cardiomyopathy include dilated, hypertrophic and restrictive cardiomyopathy.
Rheumatic heart disease occurs due to more than one attack of rheumatic fever, which leads to damage to the heart; specifically, the heart valves.
An aortic aneurysm is a balloon-like bulge in the aorta, the large artery that carries blood from the heart through the chest and torso. Aortic aneurysms can dissect or rupture: The force of blood pumping can split the layers of the artery wall, allowing blood to leak in between them.
Heart failure or congestive heart failure is a condition when the heart is unable to pump sufficient amount of blood required to maintain the rate of blood flow in the body that is necessary to meet the body’s needs.
Blood pressure is the force of your blood pushing against the walls of your arteries. Each time your heart beats, it pumps blood into the arteries. Your blood pressure is highest when your heart beats, pumping the blood. This is called systolic pressure.
Also known as atrioventricular block, heart block is a condition where the heart beats too slowly. It occurs within the heart’s electrical system where the signals that command the heart to contract are partly or completely blocked between the upper and lower chambers.
A heart attack arises when the circulation of blood to a section of heart muscle abruptly becomes blocked, mostly because of built-up of cholesterol, fat and other matters. The interruption in blood circulation may result in permanent damage to that section of heart muscle.
It is a condition which occurs when the heart is short on oxygen-rich blood, and it results in chest pain.
Arrhythmia is a complication with the rate of your heartbeat. It arises with the improper working of electrical impulses that correlate with your heartbeats, affecting your heart to beat too slow, too fast or irregularly. A cardiac electrophysiology study is a minimally invasive procedure using catheters introduced through a vein or artery to record electrical activity from within the heart.
The atrial septal defect (ASD) is a hole in the wall between the two upper chambers of the heart. There are two types of defect associated with the atrial septal - large atrial septal defect and small atrial septal defect. The large atrial septal defect may cause a major damage to the heart and lungs, whereas small atrial septal defect may occur incidentally, and may not be harmful or cause any problem.
The four valves in your heart are aortic valve, mitral valve, pulmonary valve and tricuspid valve. Any of these valves could develop an anomaly in its functioning, thereby causing a heart valve disease.
The Cardiac Division at Medanta Lucknow has a unique ‘Heart Team’ concept to ensure that a team of clinical cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, and cardiac surgeons combine their expertise to formulate and execute the best treatment option for patients with cardiac disease. The focus is to provide proficient care at an affordable cost.
Cardiac specialists at Medanta combine their experience with the most advanced techniques and diagnostic and surgical tools to treat and operate even the most complex cardiac cases.
Medanta’s use of cutting edge technology ensures long term success while providing immediate relief and ensuring patient functionality and safety.
The Artis-Zeego, available at Medanta, is equipped with a multi-axis robotic arm that provides unmatched flexibility and helps the patients to be in that position which fits best to procedural needs. This hybrid OT embodies the collaborative ‘Heart Team’ concept of Medanta by allowing cardiac surgeons and interventional cardiologists to work together, simultaneously, in the same room to provide the most technologically advanced care available.
Modern, minimally invasive surgery is made possible with the Da Vinci robotic platform. Using micro incisions, surgeons can perform delicate and complex surgeries without having to make a large cut. The ergonomically designed console converts the surgeon’s movements into corresponding micro-movements of instruments inside the patient’s body. Surgeons at Medanta use the Da Vinci Si robot to perform a growing number of complex urological, gynecological, cardiothoracic and general surgical procedures.
Medanta offers the latest state-of-the-art diagnosis, by using 256 Slice CT, one of the latest technological advancements in the field of medical diagnosis. This is an innovative non-invasive imaging technique that is specifically used for all kinds of heart diseases and disorders, to obtain a complete 3-Dimensional visual representation of the heart and other organs, in less than 5 seconds providing detailed information about the structure and functioning of the heart while the detector picks up on varying densities of the organ. The 256-slice CT scan provides a quantum leap in non-invasive imaging techniques.
Positron Emission Tomography (PET) or Computed Tomography (CT) scan is performed as an imaging test using a radioactive substance, which is known as a tracer to encounter any disease or bad blood flow to the heart. The Biograph TruePoint PET CT machine used at Medanta uses exclusive technologies, such as HD PET, TrueV, HI-REZ, LSO, Pico-3D, TrueC, and SureView, to provide outstanding image quality, which in turn improves the confidence in the diagnosis.
