Patient-friendly angioplasty introduced

Transradial angioplasty, a reportedly patient-friendly cardiac procedure to clear blocks in arteries carrying blood to the heart, was introduced at a city hospital recently.

In this procedure, access to the heart is through an artery in the wrist and not the thigh as in conventional angioplasty treatment.

The procedure was performed at Kauvery Hosptial, Tennur, by senior interventional cardiologist Senthilkumar Nallusamy and interventional cardiologist N.Arunkumar.

A heart attack occurs when a block is formed in the arteries conveying blood to the heart due to deposition of fat or cholesterol. With the help of live clips and animated videos, Dr.Senthilkumar explained coronary angioplasty restores blood flow to heart muscle by opening or clearing the block.

A catheter bearing a balloon is inserted, which when inflated, opens the block. A mesh like stent is embedded to prevent further narrowing of the artery.

While conventional angioplasty introduces the catheter through the femoral artery in the leg, the radial artery in wrist is the primary access point in the case of transradial procedure.

Conventional angioplasty may require patient to be immobile and lie flat for around 24 hours, said Dr.Senthilkumar. But transradial procedure provides greater comfort to patient allowing him to walk on the same day if the condition is stable.

There is minimal difference cost-wise between both types of angioplasty procedures that lasts around 30 to 45 minutes, he added.

Transradial angioplasty also ensures lesser bleeding complications and is particularly effective in obese patients, said Dr.Arun Kumar. The cost of the procedure ranges between Rs.1 to 1.5 lakh depending on the type of stent used that can either be bare metal or drug coated.

With the bare metal stent procedure covered under the Chief Minister’s Insurance Scheme, benefits of transradial angioplasty can also be accessed by economically weaker sections.

Dedicating the Rs.40-crore worth new facility to the city, S.Chandrakumar, director, Kauvery Hosptials, attributed the success of the hospital group to the team for specialists.

From a cardiac wing at Tennur in 2004 to an exclusive centre, the hospital’s growth has spanned more than 3,000 angioplasty and 1,000 bypass procedures, said cardio thoracic surgeon T.K.Senthilkumar.

The three-storied structure with high-end operation theatres, capacity to accommodate 500 outpatients a day, and separate clinics for heart failure, hypertension, and valve replacement would provide all the services to people from Tiruchi.

Vasan Eye Care

The ambience at the Vasan Eye Care hospital at Alwarpet in Chennai is inviting. There is a board which claims, “We are not just India’s largest eye care hospital but also the world’s largest.” In one of the rooms, Dr M. Santhoshi was performing “a slit lamp examination”, which is “a routine check-up”, on the eyes of a girl. Vasan’s Healthcare Group has a 65-year history.

Dr A.M. Arun, chairman, Vasan Healthcare Group

Dr Arun’s grandfather established Vasan Medical Centre, a drug store, in Tiruchi in 1947. Arun, who obtained his MBBS from Annamalai University, took over the shop in 1991, established a diagnostic centre and laboratory and later founded two multi-speciality hospitals in Tiruchi. Arun said: “In 2001, I realised that ophthalmology had a great future and potential.”

So he started his first eye care hospital in Tiruchi in 2002, and it has become a success. “I believe in two things: trust and care. People trust you and you should take care of them,” he said.
