The Interventional Cardiology department at Fortis Memorial Research Institute (FMRI) is a one-stop healthcare centre for the diagnosis and treatment of heart and vascular disorders. It offers immense expertise in risk stratification, prevention and comprehensive management along with rehabilitation of patients with coronary and non-coronary cardiac problems.
Equipped with highly advanced cardiac and endovascular lab, the department is at the forefront of providing exemplary treatment to patients in a supportive environment.
Our catheterisation and electrophysiology labs are equipped with improved technology, and include digital subtraction imaging, intravascular ultrasound, intracardiac echocardiography, and coronary flow wire, all of which ensure highest accuracy and accessibility of data for physicians caring for our patients.
We have specialised programs in place that facilitate critical access to our cardiac catheterisation lab round the clock.
We put our emphasis on following interventional cardiological procedures:
Interventional evaluation of narrowed arteries:
- Fractional flow reserve (FFR),
- Intracoronary Ultrasound (ICUS),
- Optical Coherence Tomography – (OCT)
Atherosclerotic coronary disease with “difficult changes”, especially:
- cutting balloon coronary angioplasty,
- Recanalization of chronic total coronary occlusions and bifurcation stenosis.
The Department of Interventional Cardiology at FMRI employs state-of-the-art technology to ensure the best outcomes of their healthcare practices. It provides advanced technology for the diagnosis and treatment of heart and vascular conditions.
All of our catheterization and electrophysiology labs are equipped with high-end technology, including digital subtraction imaging, intravascular ultrasound, intracardiac echocardiography, and coronary flow wire, all of which ensure accuracy and accessibility of data for physicians caring for our patients. Each lab features advanced image quality and radiation-lowering equipment for patient and staff safety.
At FMRI, we have access to the latest genre of all interventional devices including cardiac, carotid, and vascular stents, which means you will be treated with the best available technology that is available for your care.
