Cardiac Cath. Lab.
Cardiac catheterization (heart cath) is the insertion of a catheter into a chamber or vessel of the heart. This is done both for diagnostic and interventional purposes. Subsets of this technique are mainly coronary catheterization, involving the catheterization of the coronary arteries, and catheterization of cardiac chambers and valves of the Cardiac System.
The hospital has state of the art cardiac catheterization laboratories where procedures like Coronary Angiography, Graft Studies, Angioplasty (including Primary PCI), Pacemaker Implantation, PTMC, Pulmonary Valvuloplasties and Right Heart Catheterization are done in routine. Further Rota ablation, Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR) and Intravascular Ultrasoud (IVUS) facility is also used for the selected patients. The annual procedures done in cardiac catheterization laboratories are around 7500 to 8000.
