What is Cardiology?
Cardiology is a medical specialty focused on the study and treatment of disorders related to the heart. It encompasses the diagnosis and management of various heart conditions, including congenital defects, coronary artery disease, heart failure, valvular heart disease, and electrophysiology.

In recent years, India has emerged as a cost-effective destination for individuals seeking cardiology treatments. The country offers a range of procedures, and organizations like Medi Connect have been instrumental in facilitating treatments for international patients by collaborating with top-tier medical institutions.

Some of the cardiology treatments available in India include:

  • Angiography (Including Non-Ionic Contrast): A procedure to visualize the interior of blood vessels and organs, particularly the heart, using a non-ionic contrast medium.
  • Angioplasty (Including Non-Ionic Contrast): Surgical treatment to widen narrowed blood vessels, often involving the use of a balloon or stent, with the assistance of non-ionic contrast.
  • ASD (Atrial Septal Defect) Closure / Repair (Adult): A procedure to address a common congenital heart irregularity, involving the closure of a hole in the heart’s septum using a catheter.
  • Aortic Valve Replacement (AVR / MVR): Surgical replacement of the aortic valve, typically done with either a mechanical or donor valve.
  • Balloon Aortic Valvuloplasty: A medical treatment to widen narrowed heart valves using a balloon inserted through an artery in the arm or groin.
  • CABG (Coronary Artery Bypass Graft): A Surgical procedure to restore blood flow to the heart by grafting veins or arteries to bypass blockages.
  • CABG – Redo: A more complex version of coronary artery bypass grafting, often performed on high-risk patients or those with additional complications.
  • CABG + AVR/MVR: Combined procedure involving coronary artery bypass grafting and replacement of a defective heart valve.
  • CABG – High Risk: Surgical procedure to remove a part of an artery or vein for bypassing blockages in high-risk patients.
  • CABG + ASD/VSD Closure: Coronary artery bypass grafting followed by closure of ventricular or atrial septal defects.

These are just a few examples of the extensive range of cardiology treatments available in India. The field of cardiology continues to advance, offering innovative solutions and treatments for various heart conditions.
