Our series on transradial interventions is one of the largest series in this part of the country. We are the pioneers in performing transradial procedures in Central India.
- We keep bringing latest technology to provide best quality cardiac care to our patients. We are the first in Central India to introduce IVUS & FFR.
Definition of Intravascular Ultrasound :
Intravascular ultrasound is a test that uses sound waves to see inside the coronary arteries, the blood vessels that supply the heart.
Ultrasound uses sound waves to create moving images of organs and systems within the body. IVUS is a combination of a heart ultrasound (echocardiogram) and cardiac catheterization.
A tiny ultrasound wand is attached to the top of a tiny, hollow tube called a catheter. During the IVUS procedure, the ultrasound catheter is inserted into an artery in your groin area and moved up to the heart. This gives the health care provider a look at your arteries from the inside-out.
IVUS is often done during angioplasty. Angioplasty gives a general look at the coronary arteries, but can not show the walls of the arteries. IVUS images highlight the artery walls and can show if there are cholesterol and fat deposits (plaques). Build up of such plaque leads to hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis).
IVUS has provided a great amount of insight into how stents become clogged (stent restenosis). The method has helped show that about 20% of cases of stent restenosis occur when the stent has not expanded properly.
Why the Procedure Is Performed:
IVUS may be used to:
View the aorta and structure of the artery walls (which can show plaque build up)
- Identify which specific blood vessel is involved in aortic dissection
- Determine where a stent should be placed
- Discover how well angioplasty and stenting worked
After the Procedure:
After the test, the catheter is removed. A bandage is placed on the area. You will usually be asked to lie flat on your back with pressure on your groin area for a few hours after the test to prevent bleeding.
If IVUS was done during cardiac catheterization, you will stay in the hospital for about 3 to 6 hours. If IVUS was done during angioplasty, you will stay in the hospital for 12 to 24 hours.
There is a slight risk of complications associated with angioplasty and cardiac catheterization. However, the tests are very safe when performed by an experienced team. IVUS adds no additional risk.
Risks of angioplasty may include:
- Allergic reaction to any dye used during the test
- Complete blockage of blood flow in a certain area
- Damage to a blood vessel
- Heart arrhythmias
- Hemorrhage (bleeding) in area where the catheter was inserted
Risks of cardiac catheterization may include:
- Allergic reaction to any dye used during the test
- Cardiac tamponade
- Heart arrhythmias
- Heart attack
- Hemorrhage (bleeding)
- Injury to the artery caused by a hematoma
- Low blood pressure
|A Glimpse of our Journey from 2003|
THE ARNEJA MIRACLE!
I was 39 and, typically, totally unaware of the insidious build-up in my young coronaries. It started as unease verging on what at the time appeared to be an innocuous seeming stiffness in many areas of my upper body, including the jaws, shoulders, upper-arms, upper-back. Gradually, the awareness dawned that this was mild to quite disconcerting pain and it seemed to grow, coupled with dizziness, sweating! Then, for the first time in months, I toyed with the idea, although still quite incredulous and debating, that this might have something to do with my heart. It did!
That fateful morning 16 years ago, I recall, I almost passed out with unbearable pain in my chest & breathlessness. Because it was preordained that I survive, call it good luck: I asked to be rushed to Dr. Jaspal Singh Arneja, who, at that point, was just sinking roots as a cardiologist in Nagpur. I thought I had perhaps come to a very young doctor, when I was advised admission & explained the soon after, which would have killed me had I not been revived with streptokinase & pacing of my stricken heart. Dr Arneja saved my life! The post-episodal care & attention surprised me; it was of the highest order. The best medical practices were adopted & adhered to even in those earliest days! It became clear, to many others as to me, the extent of the impact this young doctor was going to have on Nagpur's medical landscape which until then was quite lackadaisical and average. Arneja's sincerity & devotion to the conduct of his practice, the intent to always do the best for his patient professionally, never allowing any other consideration to impede treatment that must at once be given to save life have seen him emerge as the cardiological colossus he is today.
Over the years, the Arneja Heart institute, the facility the doctor created, has acquired the richly deserved status of the benchmark of good cardiac care from diagnosis to treatment to discharge with a smile. Both my mother & I owe our lives to the facility and have been recipients of not just exceptional medical care but the personal affections of the doctor, the nurses and the exceptionally polite retinue of medical & non-medical staff. We hold this hospital in the highest esteem.
