Interventional Cardiology

Minimally-invasive Treatments for
Complex Heart Conditions

Interventional Cardiology involves treating complex heart conditions without performing an open-heart surgery. Performed using medical catheters- thin, flexible tubes, interventional cardiology includes several minimally-invasive procedures that do not require large incisions on the body.
Our highly-experienced team of interventional cardiology specialists performs advanced interventional treatments and diagnosis based on patient condition. Using a careful mix of angioplasty, stents, lasers, catheters, ultrasound techniques, Apollo CVHF Heart Institute performs a large variety of interventional procedures for various heart diseases.

Interventional Cardiology Procedures at Apollo CVHF Heart Institute (Both Adult & Pediatric))

  1. 1. Coronary diagnostic and intervention procedures
    • Coronary angiography – performed as both OPD day care and in patient and procedure . Routinely performed through radial artery access.
    • Percutaneous Coronary Interventions (Both Emergent and Elective)
      – Coronary Angioplasty and stenting, including, complex PCIs ( left main stenosis ) bifurcations, CTOs (Chronic Total Occlusions)
      – Rotablation Atherectomy guided PCIs.
      – FFR for intermediate lesion assessment
      – Intra coronary imaging (IVUS and OCT) guided PCIs in appropriate situations, especially for guiding left main PCI and complex anatomy
  2. 2. Peripheral Endovascular interventions
    • Renal, subclavian and carotid angioplasty and stenting
    • Aortoplasty and stenting for Coarctation
    • Visceral and peripheral artery embolizations with coil and gel foam
    • TEVAR (trans endovascular aortic aneurysms repair)
  3. 3. STRUCTURAL HEART DISEASES INTERVENTIONS (Intra Cardiac Echocardiography guided intervention facilities available whenever required)
