Adding another feather in the prestigious cap, cardiologists at Shalby Hospital, Indore did the first high definition 3D Mapping arrhythmia workshop in the state.
3D mapping is a highly specialized form of treatment for arrhythmia or disorders of a heartbeat. A team of cardiologists led by Dr. Siddhant Jain & Dr. Javed Parvez performed these procedures on six such patients. Dr. Siddhant Jain, Director of SICS informed the press that these patients were suffering from life-threatening diseases of heartbeat-like ventricular tachycardia, WPW Syndrome & PSVT.
3D Mapping is a non-surgical procedure where catheters are introduced into the heart to produce 3D images of the heart’s currents & the exact origin of the abnormal beat can be found out & treatment with radiofrequency ablation can then permanently cure these disorders. There is no need for General anesthesia or incision but it requires a lot of skill & expertise of cardiologists.
One of the patients was a 39-year-old male from Rajpur, Badwani who had frequent episodes of high heart rate up to 220-250 beats per minute & had to be given electric shocks in ICU two times. He was evaluated by Dr. Siddhant Jain & was diagnosed with Fascicular Ventricular Tachycardia. He underwent successful 3D ablation & his heart rhythm became normal & he was discharged safely & happily the next day.
Hospital CAO Dhananjay Kumar & Medical Superintendent Dr. Vivek Joshi congratulated Dr. Siddhant Jain, Director of SICS (Shalby Institute of Cardiac Sciences) & his team & lauded their efforts. The successful completion of the workshop shows the commitment of the hospital & doctors to bring the latest & most advanced technology for the care of heart patients in the state.
This year SICS has also introduced Precision PCI which includes the latest IVUS (Intravascular Ultrasound) & FFR (Fractional flow reserve) technologies. These techniques make angioplasty very safe & accurate. SICS has also introduced rota ablation angioplasty for complex calcified heart blockages. All these advancements are a boon for the state of MP.
