List of Treatments:

  • Complex Angioplasty Rotablation: It is simply a drilling method that clears the interior of the arteries to allow the balloon and stent to flow more readily. Senior Consultant Interventional Cardiologist performs the procedure. This treatment is performed on a very limited basis by cardiologists in South East Asia.


  • Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS): Your cardiologist can use IVUS to see your aorta and coronary arteries (blood vessels that deliver blood to the heart) in amazing detail. The examination exposes your artery walls in greater detail than coronary angiography, including any development of fat deposits (plaque). IVUS is a relatively safe technique.


  • Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR): The fractional flow reserve (FFR) is calculated by dividing the maximum possible blood flow in a diseased coronary artery by the theoretical maximum flow in a normal coronary artery. An FFR of 1.0 is typically considered normal.


  • Implantation of Biodegradable scaffolds: Biodegradable scaffolds are widely regarded as essential components for creating live tissues because they serve as temporary templates with mechanical and biological qualities similar to natural extracellular matrix. Highly experienced cardiac surgeons are required for this type of implantation procedure. 


  • Heart Failure: Heart failure occurs when the heart muscle fails to adequately pump blood. Blood frequently backs up, causing fluid to accumulate in the lungs and legs. Medications are often prescribed by the doctor for the treatment of heart failure and sometimes heart surgery depending on the severity of the heart's condition.


  • Implantation of Pacemaker: Pacemaker implantation is a technique that involves inserting a tiny battery-powered device known as a pacemaker into your chest. The pacemaker provides regular electrical impulses to your heart, which helps it beat normally. The surgeon connects the lead's tip to your heart and the other end to the pacemaker box. 

Pulmonary hypertension: When the pressure in the blood veins flowing from the heart to the lungs becomes too high, this is referred to as pulmonary hypertension. Medications such as Epoprostenol are given to the patients with pulmonary hypertension.
