“While angioplasties are performed to open the blocked arteries by placing a stent, but in most of the cases where the arteries are severely calcified, PTCA alone doesn’t seem to be an effective treatment module. At Max Hospital, we specialize in treating these calcified lesions with the help of rotablation. In Rotablation, the very fine diamond burr is used to remove calcium from the coronary arteries and a stent can then be placed.” Said Dr. Nityanand Tripathi, Associate Director, Cardiology, Max Super Speciality Hospital, Shalimar Bagh
“The latest advancements are also helpful in determining the functional significance in some tricky situations which otherwise would be seemingly borderline lesions. Making use of Fractional functional reserve (FFR), Intravascular ultrasound (IVVS) and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) techniques not only helps in treating the patients effectively but also improves their quality of life. With the technical expertise available to us for such complex procedures, we have a success rate of over 90%.” Said Dr. RashiKhare, Consultant, Cardiology, Max Hospital, Shalimar Bagh
There is a rise in the number of patients suffering from varied cardiac related conditions such as congenital defects, valve problems, and blockages of arteries of the heart, lifestyle disorders and viral infections in Tier I & II cities.
