Centre to treat patients with severe coronary artery disease, launched
Kauvery Hospital, as a part of World Heart Day celebrations and extension of its health care services, launched the “Kauvery Advanced Angioplasty Centre” for treatment of complex cases of Coronary Artery Disease. Dr. R. Nataraj, IPS(Retd.) and MLA of Mylapore declared open the centre. Dr. Aravindan Selvaraj, Executive Director and Senior Interventional Cardiologists Dr. K. P. Sureshkumar, Dr. Amal. A. Louis and Dr. S. Manoj of Kauvery Hospital spoke on the benefits of angioplasty and the highlights of the centre.
“There are now various heart centers all across India for bypass surgery. However there are none for angioplasty for this “high risk group of patients” with severe coronary artery disease or multiple blockages. With advance in technology and with third or fourth generation drug coated stents and absorbable stents, a lot of these blockages which previously were not suitable for stenting, can be successfully done without an open surgery. We also have advanced imaging facilities superior to angiogram (Intravascular Ultrasound and Optical Coherence Tomography imaging) which further facilitates the advanced angioplasty techniques.” said Senior Interventional Cardiologist Dr. Amal. A. Louis.For more info, Contact: Mr. Lakshmi Narayana, CGM, Kauvery Hospital, 81449 38757, firstname.lastname@example.org/
