Angioplasty

Angioplasty is a nonsurgical procedure performed by licensed cardiologists to open blocked heart arteries. Patients are given local anaesthesia before the process of cardiac catheterization starts. This is where a sheath is inserted into the artery typically from the arm or the groin. A catheter with a small balloon is guided up to the blood vessel to the arteries that surround the heart. The balloon is then inflated to press fatty deposits against the artery wall and make way for the blood to ensure that it flows smoothly. Stent is typically used to ensure that the arteries remain unclogged even after the procedure. Dr Thiru Navookarasu Muthusamy specialises in interventional cardiology and medical devices. He offers angioplasty procedure to both local and international patients.

Echocardiography

Stress test echocardiography is an ultrasound imaging procedure that involves the use of high-pitched sound waves to create a detailed image of the heart. The goal is to detect if there is a decrease in blood flow. The procedure starts with a resting echocardiogram where the patient is asked to lie down while the heartbeat is monitored using a transducer. The second part includes asking the patients to stand up to perform certain exercises to get the heartbeat at a target rate. Throughout the procedure, the doctor monitors both the heart rhythm and blood pressure.

Pacemaker Implant

A pacemaker is a small medical device that is used to control abnormal heart rhythms to regulate the heartbeat. It sends an electric signal to the heart helping it pump blood the right way. Pacemaker insertion is carried out under local anaesthetic. The doctor creates a small incision in the upper chest where thin insulate wires, also called leads, are inserted and guided through the vein in the heart. These wires are connected to the pacemaker, which is programmed based on the patient’s specific medical needs before it is placed under the skin. Dr Thiru Navookarasu Muthusamy specialises in interventional cardiology and medical devices. He offers pacemaker insertion to both local and international patients.
