Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery
Emergency Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI)
Cardiac Device Implantation
Open Heart Surgery
Commonly known as bypass surgery, this is a procedure done to restore blood flow in a narrow or blocked artery. The procedure is an open heart surgery that requires a large incision to be made to access the chest cavity. The surgeon takes out a blood vessel from one part of your body and uses to divert blood flow away from the blocked coronary artery in order to restore the blood flow. A blocked or narrowed artery severely increases the strain on the heart and will eventually result in heart failure.
An X-ray imaging test is done to see if there are any restrictions in blood flow going to your heart. This is the most common test to help doctors diagnose heart conditions. During coronary angiography, a small catheter or tube is inserted through the skin into an artery in the groin or the Hand. Through a special x-ray viewing instrument, the catheter is moved to the opening of the coronary arteries which supply blood to the heart. A small amount of solution containing iodine is injected into each artery. The images that are produced are called the angiogram which accurately reveals the blockages.
This is a non-surgical procedure that is used to treat coronary arteries for stenosis. It is a combination of angioplasty & stenting that widens narrowed and blocked coronary arteries and restores blood flow from the heart. In cases of acute heart attacks (Myocardial Infarctions), PCI is used as an emergency treatment. PCI is considered to be an alternative to bypass grafts.
Coronary angioplasty is routinely done to open clogged heart arteries. It can improve symptoms such as chest pain and shortness of breath. Angioplasty is also often used during a heart attack to quickly open a blocked artery and reduce the amount of damage to your heart. It involves inserting and inflating a tiny balloon into the spot where your artery is clogged to help widen the artery. Angioplasty can also be done through the artery in your wrist instead of the arm or thigh. The radial approach, through the wrist, is usually preferred by cardiologists due to its benefits in terms of bleeding, its superficial location and easy compressibility and low risk of restricted blood supply to the tissues.
A cardiac device helps control irregular heartbeats to protect against heart rhythm disorders. One of the most commonly used cardiac devices is a pacemaker, which produces electrical stimuli to the heart to help it maintain rhythm. An Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) is used to assist the heart's ventricles to restore their capacity after an irregularity. The surgery to implant these devices is quick and patients are often discharged soon after the procedure is completed.
This is a procedure that involves the opening of the chest cavity and creating a bypass system that allows blood to pump through your body without going through the heart. During open heart surgery, the heart is stopped for a period of time until surgical procedures or investigations can be completed. Once the surgical objective has been achieved, the surgeon restarts the heart and closes up the chest cavity.
At Manipal Hospitals, we also provide cardiovascular services to children. Pediatric cardiologists trained in treating children work together with other pediatric specialists to diagnose and treat children and adolescents.

The Department of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery at Manipal Hospitals is equipped with third generation Cath Labs, Cardiac Critical Care Units and Intensive Care Units.
The pioneering work of prestigious group for the prevention and treatment of cardiac diseases has led to the achievement of better outcomes and improved quality of life for thousands of cardiac patients.
After gathering general information about the patient's health from our cardiologist will review the patient's medical history, and do a complete physical examination. Then the doctor might order the necessary investigations to determine the health of your heart.

Mild discomfort or pain in the chest area, it may radiate to the neck, jaw, or arm on the left side of the body and is usually associated with shortness of breath, nausea, and sweating. Diabetics and women may not have chest discomfort but may have only a few of the associated symptoms.
Some illnesses can cause heart disease, but a majority of heart diseases can be prevented by adopting a healthy lifestyle.
Yes, a yearly health check-up that includes a blood pressure check, lipid, and cholesterol test and a discussion with your doctor about other risk factors should not be overlooked.
