Cardiology Departments

Cardiology Center is the heart of Mallya Hospital and amongst the leader for non-invasive and invasive cardiology in the city of Bengaluru, South India. The center has evolved and progressed over the past decade in the field of cardiology in tandem with new emerging technologies and enhanced cardiac care to give heart patients recent modalities of treatment. The hospital has some of India’s best talent of its panel of cardiologists and is equipped to care. Mallya hospital‘s world class stature is testified by the fact that it is country’s first multi-specialty hospital to get the ISO 9002 recognition. The heart center annually performs over 500 angioplasties and over 2500 diagnostic Catheterization procedures.

    TMT


    The stress test (or exercise test) is one of the most common screening tests used to diagnose the presence of, and the extent of, coronary artery disease. Stress test, sometimes called a treadmill test or exercise test, helps the doctor find out how well your heart handles its workload. This information sheet answers the following regarding having a stress test:

    • » Why do I need a stress test?
    • » What happens during the test?
    • » What is monitored during the test?
    • » What equipment is used?
    • » Is there a risk?

    Holter monitoring


    In Holter monitoring (ambulatory electrocardiography) a lightweight, portable monitor records the electrocardiogram for 24 hours while the wearer goes about his or her normal day. This study can be useful in diagnosing abnormal heart rhythm symptoms.

    Echocardiography


    Echocardiography is a painless, noninvasive test that can be performed at the hospital bedside or as an outpatient procedure. An echocardiogram uses high-frequency sound waves to provide a picture of the contracting heart, its valves and blood flow through the heart.

    Tran esophageal echocardiogram (TEE)


    Since sound waves travel poorly through bone, lung and thick chest walls, ultrasonic examination may be difficult in certain people. These patients may have a Tran esophageal echocardiogram (TEE), which uses a special probe passed into the esophagus so that an ultrasonic picture of the heart can be obtained without interference from the lungs or ribcage.

    Cardiac Catheterization

    Coronary Angiography


    This is a procedure to examine blood flow to the heart and test how well the heart is pumping. A thin plastic tube (catheter) is inserted into an artery in the arm or leg. From there, it is advanced into the chambers of the heart or into the coronary arteries. The Interventional Cardiologist who does this procedure is able to get the information about the pumping ability of the heart muscle and also the freeness of the blood flow in the Coronaries. The block if any in the Coronary arteries is evaluated through this diagnostic procedure.

    Coronary Angioplasty


    Coronary angioplasty is a medical procedure in which a balloon is used to open a blockage in the coronary artery which is narrowed by atherosclerosis. The opening of the blocks enables the blood flow to the heart. Atherosclerosis is a condition in which a material called plaque builds up on the inner walls of the arteries. This can happen in any artery, including coronary arteries and such a condition is termed as coronary artery disease (CAD).

    Angioplasty is aimed at:

    • • Improving symptoms of CAD, such a angina and shortness of breath.
    • • Reduce damage to the heart muscle from a heart attack.
    • • Reduce the risk of death in some patients
