Advancements in the field of Cardiology bring in definitive pathways and safer treatment solutions for heart disease

Date : January 10, 2016

Cardiology is perhaps the youngest specialties in medicine. In 1913 one of the major breakthroughs in clinical medicine in Chicago was discovered that fatal heart attacks were caused due to blockages in arteries and the medical world set about finding a cure for it. The field of Cardiology has travelled leaps and bounds to bring in the finest technological, procedural and surgical advancements in the world of medicine to save more and more lives.

By the 20th century heart treatment through bypass surgeries, open heart surgeries and angioplasties had become common procedures to revive the medical conditions of the heart in patients suffering from respective heart problems. With significantly less complication rates, lives of millions were saved. Technological advancements like heart transplants, TAVI (Trans-catheter aortic valve implantation), LVAD (left ventricular assist device), 3D Echo, Small & Light weight pacemakers; Multi-layered Flow Modulator, S-ICD and the latest trends in cardiac imaging, and drug related treatments have contributed significantly in saving patients suffering from complicated heart problems.

Dr. Ashok K Omer, Director Non- Invasive Cardiology & Head of Emergency & Heart Command Centre, Fortis Escorts Heart Institute, New Delhi said, “India is battling the burden of increasing cardiac ailments in all age groups with the younger population coming into its fold lately. We have the dubious distinction of being the Cardiological disease capital in the world. However, with the latest and upgraded treatment solutions in cardiac sciences we hope to bring down the affected population by a significant number. A proactive approach, timely treatment, advanced and minimally invasive procedures that shorten time span for surgeries are enabling us to deliver consistently superior outcomes with greater predictability.”
