Adult Cardiology Services at SevenHills Hospital

The hospital provides a wide spectrum of heart related services from simple radial coronary angiogram to high-tech sophisticated treatment involving complex cardiac angioplasties, interventional procedures for peripheral vascular diseases, and balloon procedures for narrowed valves.

  • What is Cardiology?

    Cardiology is a medical specialty dealing with disorders of the heart. The field includes diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, heart failure, valvular heart disease and electrophysiology.

  • Treatment options at SevenHills Hospital:

    • Non Invasive Cardiology
    • Electrocardiogram (ECG)
    • Coronary Angiogram
      (Radial and Femoral approach)
    • Balloon angioplasty (PTCA) with stenting
    • Intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) Insertion
    • Peripheral angiography with angioplasty
    • Thrombin injection for femoral pseudo-aneurysms
    • Rotational atherectomy using diamond coated

    • Coil/Gel Foam Embolization for pulmonary and
      systemic AV fistulas
    • Superficial femoral artery atherectomy using
      Silverhawk plaque excision device.
    • Repair of mitral, aortic, tricuspid and pulmonary
      valves (valvuloplasty) using balloons.
    • Closure of birth defects in the heart in cases of
      Atrial Septal defect or Patent Ductus Arteriosus.

      imaging inside of coronary arteries
    • Clot removal from the vessels using
      Mechanical Thrombectomy System
    • Endomyocardial biopsy using femoral
      and juguluar approach.
    • IVC Filter placement for recurrent
      pulmonary thromboembolism
    • Alcohol septal ablation for Hypertrophic
      Obstructive Cardiomyopathy (HOCM)
  • What is Non-Invasive Cardiology?

    Non Invasive Cardiology pertains to cardiovascular evaluation without getting exposure to the patient's blood. It involves tests which are generally considered the basic and essential first steps towards a cardiac evaluation.

  • What is Invasive Cardiology?

    Invasive Cardiology pertains to a patient's evaluation which involves exposure to the patient's blood. These are generally considered advanced forms of diagnostic or therapeutic techniques. The procedures under this section are carried out in our well-equipped and high-tech Cardiac Catheterization laboratories.

  • What is a Coronary Angiogram?

    A coronary angiogram is a procedure that uses X-ray imaging to see your heart's blood vessels. Coronary angiograms are part of a general group of procedures known as cardiac catheterization. During a coronary angiogram, a type of dye that's visible by X-ray machine is injected into the blood vessels of your heart. The X-ray machine rapidly takes a series of images (angiograms), offering a detailed look at the inside of your blood vessels. If necessary, your doctor may perform procedures such as angioplasty during your coronary angiogram.

  • Why Is A Cath Lab (Coronary Angiogram) Done?

    Your doctor may recommend that you to have a coronary angiogram if you have:

    • Symptoms of coronary artery disease, such as chest pain (angina)
    • Pain in your chest, jaw, neck or arm that can't be explained by other tests
    • New or increasing chest pain (unstable angina)
    • A heart defect you were born with (congenital heart disease)
    • Heart failure
    • Other blood vessel problems or a chest injury
    • A heart valve problem that requires surgery
    • You may also need an angiogram if you're going to have a surgery unrelated to your heart, but you're at high risk of having a heart problem during that surgery.
  • How Do I Know If I Need A Cardiac Surgeon?

    If your general medical doctor or cardiologist feels that surgery may be the best treatment for your heart condition and that medication alone will not be enough, then you will be referred to a cardiac surgeon for further evaluation.

    The surgeon will review your medical records and test, especially the heart catheterization results, if bypass, cardiac valve, or heart surgery for a congenital defect is being considered. The cardiac surgeon will then discuss your case with you and your doctors, to give further advice to you about the risks and benefits of the surgery. Cardiac surgeons perform many operations - coronary artery bypass, pacemaker insertion, heart rhythm surgery, valve replacement or repairs, heart transplants, and repairs of complex heart problems present from birth (congenital heart disease). They are also qualified to operate on organs other than the heart, such as the lungs, esophagus, and blood vessels.
