The Interventional Cardiology Department is manned by trained and dedicated personnel and is one of the busiest in the city. Coronary stenting is routine and performed by most of the interventional cardiologists. Patients with high risk and multi vessel involvement are also treated.
Primary angioplasty, an approach of opening blocked coronary artery during acute myocardial infarction, in place of thrombolysis is practised in suitable cases. Non-coronary intervention deals with a variety of cardiovascular abnormalities. Subclavian, iliac, femoral and carotid artery balloon angioplasty and stenting are being performed. Vascular dissection and aneurysm repair are also conducted with covered stents. Recently, owing to the advent of several percutaneous interventions, it is being increasingly used to guide these interventions. For example device closure of ASD, VSD, placement of stent grafts as well as BMV.
Department Of Non-Invasive Cardiology

It has broad range of applications in which encompasses the entire spectrum of cardiac and vascular disease. It is crucial to the evaluation and management of coronary artery disease, rheumatic and valvular heart disease, cardiomyopathies, peripheral vascular, reno- vascular carotid artery disease. At Apollo Hospital we are performing basic & advanced echocardiographic and also Doppler based procedures including Echo, (2-D, 3D and contrast echo, TEE), stress echo, carotid and vascular Doppler studies, dyssynchrony evaluation.
