Commonly known as bypass surgery, this is a procedure done to restore blood flow in a narrow or blocked artery. The procedure is an open heart surgery that requires a large incision to be made to access the chest cavity. The surgeon takes out a blood vessel from one part of your body and uses to divert blood flow away from the blocked coronary artery…Read More
A Holter monitor is a small, wearable, ambulatory electrocardiography device that keeps track of heart rhythms and records all heartbeats.Read More
An ECG or Electrocardiogram is a simple, non-invasive procedure that records heart rate and its rhythms. ECG is done to look or check for known heart conditions or how healthy the heart is before or after surgery.Read More
An echocardiogram is an ultrasound of the heart. It uses standard 2D, 3D and Doppler ultrasound to create images of the heart. The test does not involve any radiation.Read More
An X-ray imaging test is done to see if there are any restrictions in blood flow going to your heart. This is the most common test to help doctors diagnose heart conditions. During coronary angiography, a small catheter or tube is inserted through the skin into an artery in the groin or the Hand. Through a special x-ray viewing instrument, the catheter…Read More
Coronary angioplasty is routinely done to open clogged heart arteries. It can improve symptoms such as chest pain and shortness of breath. Angioplasty is also often used during a heart attack to quickly open a blocked artery and reduce the amount of damage to your heart. It involves inserting and inflating a tiny balloon into the spot where your artery…Read More
This is a non-surgical procedure that is used to treat coronary arteries for stenosis. It is a combination of angioplasty & stenting that widens narrowed and blocked coronary arteries and restores blood flow from the heart. In cases of acute heart attacks (Myocardial Infarctions), PCI is used as an emergency treatment. PCI is considered to be an alternative…Read More
A cardiac device helps control irregular heartbeats to protect against heart rhythm disorders. One of the most commonly used cardiac devices is a pacemaker, which produces electrical stimuli to the heart to help it maintain rhythm. An Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) is used to assist the heart's ventricles to restore their capacity after…Read More
This is a procedure that involves the opening of the chest cavity and creating a bypass system that allows blood to pump through your body without going through the heart. During open heart surgery, the heart is stopped for a period of time until surgical procedures or investigations can be completed. Once the surgical objective has been achieved,…Read More
Manipal Hospitals’ Cardiac Unit boasts of futuristic diagnostic and testing machinery that combines advanced technology and high precision tools to present the most complex of cases with accuracy.

An electrophysiology test reveals how electrical signals move through your heart. When these signals show normal movements, your heartbeat is regular. When these signals are abnormal, your heartbeat is irregular and this is called an arrhythmia. Radiofrequency ablation (RA) is the procedure to treat some types of arrhythmias. Together it takes about…Read More
Using specialized cardiac MRI's, a cardiologist evaluates hemodynamic changes in the body to identify congenital heart disease. Identifying congenital heart defects at an early stage is crucial to improving the life expectancy and quality of life of patients.Read More
The heart’s two lower chambers are the ventricles and the right ventricle pumps blood to the lungs. It connects to the pulmonary artery, the main blood vessel leading to the lungs. Between the right ventricle and the pulmonary artery is the pulmonary valve, one of the heart’s four valves. In a normal heart, the pulmonary valve opens fully when the…Read More
The mitral valve is a valve with two flaps in the heart that lies between the left atrium and the left ventricle. Sometimes, the valves don't open or close properly, disrupting the blood flow through your heart to your body and also causes blood to leak backward to the left atrium. The valve may also be narrowed. Balloon Mitral Valvuloplasty is a procedure…Read More
Adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) Congenital heart disorders are the most common type of birth defect. These can range from simple ones with no symptoms to complex types which are severe and life-threatening such as a hole in the heart that causes blood from the left and right sides of the heart to mix, or even a narrowed valve that blocks blood…Read More
VSD is a hole in the wall called septum, separating the two lower chambers of the heart. In a normal heart, only the left side pumps blood to the body, and the right side to the lungs. With an abnormal opening between the ventricles, a large amount of oxygen-rich (red) blood from the heart's left side is pushed through the hole into the right side.…Read More
PDA is an unclosed hole in the aorta, the main artery that carries blood away from your heart. In a normal heart, its left side pumps blood only to the body while the right pumps blood to the lungs. If you have PDA, extra blood gets pumped from your body artery or aorta into the lung (pulmonary) arteries. If the PDA is large, the extra blood being…Read More
This condition occurs when arteries and veins have abnormal connections between them. Pulmonary AVMs act as direct conduits between the pulmonary artery and the pulmonary vein, which reduces blood oxygen levels, and also allows clots and bacteria to bypass the normal filtration process of the lung capillaries. Pulmonary AVMs are prone to rupturing,…Read More
CRT is prescribed for patients with heart failure or arrhythmia (irregular heart beat). There are two types of CRT devices – one is the biventricular pacemaker and the other is the same device which includes a built-in implantable cardioverter defibrillator and is called a cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator (CRT-D).Read More

After gathering general information about the patient's health from our cardiologist will review the patient's medical history, and do a complete physical examination. Then the doctor might order the necessary investigations to determine the health of your heart.
Cholesterol, Hypertension, Obesity, Diabetes, Smoking, Family history of heart disease
Mild discomfort or pain in the chest area, it may radiate to the neck, jaw, or arm on the left side of the body and is usually associated with shortness of breath, nausea, and sweating. Diabetics and women may not have chest discomfort but may have only a few of the associated symptoms.
Some illnesses can cause heart disease, but a majority of heart diseases can be prevented by adopting a healthy lifestyle.
Yes, a yearly health check-up that includes a blood pressure check, lipid, and cholesterol test and a discussion with your doctor about other risk factors should not be overlooked.
