Apollo Hospitals uses Synergistic Device Strategy for Complex Heart Block Treatment

Apollo Hospitals uses Synergistic Device Strategy for Complex Heart Block Treatment

In an effort to uphold standards of clinical excellence and elevate standards of care for those with cardiological conditions, a team of doctors from Apollo Hospital have implemented a pioneering set of techniques to treat complex heart blocks.  The team, led by interventional cardiologist Dr Sengottuvelu G, recently demonstrated the specialized techniques at prestigious international forums in association with Asian Pacific Society of Interventional Cardiology and European Bifurcation Club and received peer acclaim.

Recognising these unique challenges, Apollo Hospitals has established an evolving approach that combines a suite of advanced techniques such as Laser, Rotablation, Shock Wave Lithotripsy, Orbital Atherectomy and Cutting Balloon. Complex PCI in India involves addressing intricate coronary lesions, often characterized by heavy calcification or total occlusions (blocks). These lesions can significantly impede blood flow to the heart, leading to symptoms like chest pain and increased risk of heart attacks. 

Notable cases include the successful treatment of a 75-year-old lady with a densely calcified lesion, the recovery of a 54-year-old doctor with left main disease and the recovery of a 77-year-old patient with previous bypass surgery who had a cardiac arrest at his house. 

Ms Suneeta Reddy, Managing Director, Apollo Hospitals Group, said, “Hearty congratulations to Dr Sengottuvelu and his team on the breakthrough procedures! Our surgeons bring skill, experience and insight to their practice and we are delighted that they have earned acclaim on the global stage.”

Dr Sengottuvelu, Interventional Cardiologist and Clinical Lead, Structural Heart Disease Programme, Apollo Hospitals Group, said, “By combining various techniques, we have created comprehensive solutions to deal with the specific issue of blockages and enhance life expectancy.”
