Comprehensive Care For Your Heart

Jupiter Hospital is a committed centre offering state-of-the-art comprehensive cardiac care to patients with cardiovascular diseases such as angina, coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, rhythm disorder, congenital cardiac disease and heart failure. 

 Interventional cardiology includes the full range of cardiac and vascular surgery, we offer a full range of treatment and services under one roof.

In Non- Interventional Cardiology we have Routine tests and special tests , Routine test include ECG,Echo,TMT, Holter special test include Contrast Stress Echocardiography, Dobutamine stress Echocardiography, Trans-Echophageal Echocardiography , Bubble Echo study, Myocardial Viability by Echo Study.

In Interventional Cardiology, we follow protocol wise treatment of ischaemic heart disease patients by means of Angioplasty or Bypass Surgery. After Angioplasty we are equipped with all latest gazzettes like ROTATIONAL ATHERECTOMY Device , FFR Study etc. For Bypass surgery we have 24x7 dedicated team of Cardiac  Surgeon ,cardiac anaesthetists, dedicated operation thetre, dedicated post of care. Various Valve Replacements also happen regularly. We also have dedicated seperate team for congenital heart disease treatment, Comprising of skilled paediatrician for congenital Heart Disease intervention such as ASD, VSD Device closure PDA Closure. Also, for congenital Heart disease surgery we have dedicated Skilled Paediatric Heart Surgeon.

Our heart care team comprises of cardiac surgeons, cardiologists, cardiac anaesthesiologists, intensivists, and intensive care experts have adopted a 'Heart Team' approach and work in synergy for delivering the best possible outcomes. Our experts at the institute are recognised for their expertise in the field of Interventional cardiology including Primary Angioplasty in Myocardial Infarction (PAMI), Coronary Bypass Surgery, Total Arterial Grafting, Complex Congenital Cardiac Surgery, Surgery for Aneurysm, etc. We perform a wide range of coronary angioplasty and interventions required for correction of congenital anomalies and electrophysiology studies.

The dedicated specialist units at the institute are further streamlined into various sub-disciplines of ‘Cardiac Care’. These include:

  • Interventional Cardiology which includes
    • Coronary intervention including complex angioplasties, PAMI(Primary Angioplasty in Acute Myocardial Infarction)
    • Pacemakers including CRT Devices
    • Automatic Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator (AICD)
    • Congenital anomalies device closures
    • Peripheral interventions like Aneurysm coiling, Embolization
  • Non invasive Cardiology
    • Echocardiogram (Echo)
    • Stress Test (TMT) (CSE) (DBE)

The institute also offers round-the-clock multidisciplinary, comprehensive emergency care to patients suffering from critical heart diseases. We are equipped with state-of-the-art Intensive Cardiac Care Unit that has technologically advanced monitoring equipment and certified staff to administer emergency services 24x7.

All-inclusive care

Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT)

Our Heart Centre offers the most comprehensive care to patients suffering from various heart diseases. Our cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons are well trained in evaluating, diagnosing and performing cardiovascular surgery in or order to treat patients suffering from heart rhythm disorders.

Staff at Jupiter Hospital implants hundreds of implantable devices to help people live a quality of life without worrying much about their heart.

What Is Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT)?

Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), also termed as biventricular pacing, involves the use of a special kind of pacemaker known as a biventricular pacemaker - that works by sending small electrical impulses through the leads attached to it, in order to keep the right and left ventricles pumping together, called AV synchrony. It is designed to help the ventricles contract normally and improve the heart’s rhythm and symptoms associated with arrhythmia or heart failure.

How Does A Biventricular Pacemaker Works?

The pacemaker is implanted just below the collarbone. There are three wires connected to the devices monitor that helps in detecting heart rate irregularities and in synchronizing the heart by emitting tiny pulses of electricity to correct them.

Diagnostic Procedure

The doctor performs several tests to diagnose the find the cause of irregular heartbeats, before implanting a biventricular pacemaker. These tests are performed using:

  • Electrocardiogram (ECG)
  • Holter monitoring
  • Echocardiogram
  • Stress test
  • Special Echo

Benefits Of CRT - Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) helps in improving the heart’s efficiency by increasing blood flow in patients who have experienced heart failure symptoms such as shortness of breath that aren't controlled with medication.  It improves the overall quality of life of the patient and decreases in hospitalization and morbidity.

Results - Having a biventricular pacemaker will help in improving the symptoms caused due to heart failure & slow heartbeats.

Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD)

The Heart Centre has a team of dedicated cardiologists and cardiac surgeons offering patient-centric care to people suffering from a condition called Ventricular Tachycardia, otherwise known as a fast heartbeat, or a chaotic heartbeat. We use state-of-the-art facilities and treatment modalities at the centre to diagnose, treat and prevent various disorders related to abnormal heartbeats.

What Is An Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD)?

An Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) is a small device about the size of business-card is used as an aid to treat people with dangerously abnormal heart rhythms. It constantly monitors the patient’s heartbeat and delivers electrica shock/ pulses automatically when it detects an abnormal heart rhythm.

People who have sustained ventricular tachycardia, fainted from a ventricular arrhythmia survived a cardiac arrest, or suffering from coronary artery disease, abnormal heart muscles, inherited heart defect, Brugada syndrome and arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia can be benefited with Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD).

How Does An Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) Work?

ICD is surgically implanted below the collarbone (usually below the left collarbone) in a pocket under the skin. One or two insulated wires attached to ICD runs into the heart chamber via veins of the heart in order to constantly monitors for abnormal heart rhythms. The device helps in instantly correcting the abnormal heartbeats by automatically delivering electric shock/ pulses.

Diagnostic Procedure

The doctor performs several tests to diagnose the find the cause of irregular heartbeats, before implanting an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator. These tests are performed using:

  • Electrocardiography (ECG)
  • Echocardiography
  • Holter monitoring
  • Event recorder
  • Electrophysiology study (EPS)

Benefits Of ICD - ICDs are capable of continuously monitoring your heartbeat and detecting any abnormal heartbeats (arrhythmias). It even stops the abnormal heartbeats by delivering electrical pulses to restore a normal heart rhythm when necessary.

Result - For anyone who has survived cardiac arrest, ICDs have become standard treatment and they are increasingly used in people at high risk of sudden cardiac arrest. ICD has a capability of lowering your risk against sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) and offer the best protection.
