Sixty year old survives multi vessel coronary angioplasty using novel procedure in Chennai

Mrs Sarala, a 60-year-old women resident of Chennai who suffered an acute heart attack who was brought to Kumaran hospital in a very critical state survives a multi vessel coronary angioplasty using ROTA – PRO which was recently launched in the country.

According to an official communication, due to the age factor, regular angioplasty becomes impossible for the patient due to heavy calcifications in the blood vessel. 

The doctors team decided to perform first of its kind procedure to treat theTriple Vessel Disease using ROTA-PRO. 

The procedure involves navigating a catheter fitted with a Rotablator device through the site of the blockage, under a local anaesthetic. The device then rotates at a speed of up to 150,000 rpm, gently pulverizing the blockage into tiny particles that can pass safely through the bloodstream. 

The expert team headed by Profesors Ajith Ananthakrishna Pillai and Dr Sidharthan performed the procedure. Dr. Ajith Ananthakrishna Pillai, Senior Consultant - Interventional Cardiologist said, “With the recently installed “artificial intelligence” enabled hybrid cath lab available at Kumaran hospitals, has helped in performing the procedure successfully on the patient.”
