Launch of the first Cardio-Neuro iGS 520 Cath Lab of the country
Launch of the first Cardio-Neuro iGS 520 Cath Lab of the country, the third one in United Hospital: A Remarkable Milestone
With the inauguration of the third Cath Lab,United Hospital becomes the largest facility for Interventional Cardiology and Neurology in the country. This new ultramodern Cath Lab, has unique PCI Assist which reduces any possible blurring of image due to organ motion; it has in-built StentViz which enhances visibility of the stent structure in verifying placement and deployment of stents during coronary interventions where moving arteries could make visibility challenging; furthermore its StentVesselViz assists in cases of complex clinical situations such as bifurcations or calcified lesions for visualisation of
stent into the vessel pre and post deployment. This Cath Lab is a true hybrid one, as it provides all facilities for various Interventional Neurology procedures to strengthen Stroke management like cerebral angiogram, carotid stenting and other cerebral interventions like coiling, clipping, flow diverter, embolisation etc in haemorrhagic and ischaemic stroke patients. Patients coming within 3-4 hours of stroke, after initial rTPA (recombinant tissue plasminogen activator) therapy can have necessary primary intervention in Cath Lab to stop progression of the brain damage. Moreover patients who have had stroke
weeks or months back, can also be evaluated for neuro-intervention procedures to correct their brain damage. In addition, other interventional procedures like aortic & hepatic angiogram, all peripheral angiogram and venogram and stenting can also be done here.
