Interventional Cardiology


The Interventional Cardiology Centres are manned by senior cardiologists trained in India and abroad. Coronary stenting is a routine procedure, and can be performed by most of our interventional cardiologists. High risk patients and patients with multi vessel involvement are also treated.

In suitable cases, primary angioplasty (an approach of opening blocked coronary arteries during acute myocardial infarction) is performed instead of thrombolysis. Since the Interventional Cardiology Centres were established, our cardiologists have performed over 85,000 angiographies and over 50,000 coronary angioplasties. On the other hand, non-coronary interventions are used to treat a variety of cardiovascular abnormalities. We can also perform subclavian, iliac, femoral and carotid artery balloon angioplasty and stenting. Vascular dissection and aneurysm repairs are also routinely conducted, with covered stents.


Non-Surgical Closure of Heart Defects

Patients with a hole in their heart - whether an Atrial Septal Defect, a small Ventricular Septal Defect or a Patent Ductus Arteriosus – can be treated by having the holes closed effectively via Button or Amplatzer’s device or coils.


Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery

Our doctors use minimally invasive techniques to perform multiple graft heart bypass surgeries, without cutting through a single bone. This novel procedure induces less pain and allows for a faster recovery than a conventional bypass. Our surgeons were the first in India to insert multiple grafts at the back side of the heart through minimally invasive coronary surgery. We also perform various non-operative procedures to avoid the need for making skin incisions (‘key-hole’): non-surgical closures of atrial septal defects, ventricular septal defects and patent ductus arteriosus and balloon valvuloplasty of the pulmonary, aortic and mitral valves.

ClearWayâ„¢ RX - Rapid Exchange Therapeutic Perfusion Catheter

The ClearWayâ„¢ RX - Rapid Exchange Therapeutic Perfusion Catheter helps save larger area of heart muscle during heart attacks. Cardiac interventionists are now aware that of the fact that removing the big clot that causes a heart attack in insufficient; they also need to make sure that the supply of blood to the heart muscles via small vessels is not disrupted...

Dedicated Bifurcation Stent Technology for Complex Bifurcation Angioplasty

A bifurcation lesion occurs when a blockage appears where the blood vessel divides into two. This is a challenging condition, since performing a balloon angioplasty in one vessel risks the possibility of the other branch closing (since both branches are narrowing). A typical procedure involves the placement of one or two stents, but the possibility of a recurrence in the side branch remains …Read more


Bioresorsable Vascular Scaffold (BVS)

The new BVS is a non-metallic, impermanent mesh implant that is used to treat narrowed arteries. While functionally similar to a stent, it will gradually dissolve once the blocked artery has regained its natural function and can stay open on its own. Once the blood flow to the heart has been restored, the BVS takes one to two years to disappear

Ms. Lilian, Kenya
Ms. Lilian came to Apollo Hospitals Chennai from Kenya for treatment following an accident that resulted in fractures. Just 3 days after her surgery, she was able to walk. She thanks God and Dr.
