Coronary angiography is a procedure that uses a special dye and x-rays to see how blood flows through the arteries in your heart.
Coronary angioplasty is a procedure used to open clogged heart arteries. Angioplasty uses a tiny balloon catheter that is inserted in a blocked blood vessel to help widen it and improve blood flow to the heart.
Valve replacement surgery is the replacement of one or more of the heart valves with either an artificial heart valve or a bioprosthesis.
A pacemaker is a device that sends small electrical impulses to the heart muscle to maintain a suitable heart rate or to stimulate the lower chambers of the heart (ventricles).

Angiography is an x-ray technique in which dye is injected into the chambers of your heart or the arteries that lead to your heart (the coronary arteries). The cardiologist can then measure the blood flow and blood pressure in the heart chambers and see if the coronary arteries are blocked. The heart specialists perform a cardiac catheterization procedure in which a long, thin tube (called a catheter) is put into an artery in the leg and threaded into the heart. Once the catheter is in place in the heart, a dye is injected through the catheter and into the heart. The dye helps doctors see how the heart chambers and the coronary arteries are working. The movement of the dye through your heart and coronary arteries is recorded as an angiogram and viewed on a television monitor.
It is found that the coronary arteries in some people become hardened and this creates difficulty in the free-flowing of blood and oxygen through them. This condition is known as coronary artery disease and cardiologists perform angioplasty to treat this. There is the use of catheterization in this procedure to open up the artery making the flow easy. You may need to stay the night at the hospital after the surgery, which can take up to 1 to 3 hours. The best angioplasty doctor in Kolkata performs this procedure by inserting a catheter into a blocked artery. Balloon method and the stent method are the two types of angioplasty normally done. The doctor aims to open the blocked artery in both the procedures so that the flow of blood and oxygen becomes consistent and easy.
In a healthy heart, there is normally a pacemaker-like mechanism. This helps in maintaining the heart’s rhythm and space. Your cardiologist may suggest installing a pacemaker in your chest if there is any abnormality in the heart function. In order to keep the heart’s rhythm normal, a pacemaker sends electrical signals to the heart. For the treatment of fainting spells (syncope), congestive heart failure, and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy also, a cardiologist uses pacemaker in Kolkata apart from using it as a corrective procedure for arrhythmia. The leads and the pulse generator are the two parts of a pacemaker. The wires implanted into the heart muscle through veins comprise the first part and the latter part consists of the battery and a small computer pushed inside the chest. The leads perform a dual function of monitoring the heart’s activity and helping carry impulses from the pulse generator. The heart gets the power to contract from these impulses. The three types of pacemakers are single-chamber pacemakers, dual-chamber pacemakers and biventricular pacemakers.
A type of surgical procedure for the treatment of heart valve surgery is known as heart valve surgery. A heart specialist usually performs this surgery on the mitral valve but may also carry out this procedure on aortic, tricuspid and pulmonic valves. If heart valve repair surgery cannot cure the patient completely, the doctor goes for heart valve surgery. The purpose of heart valve surgeries can be the replacement of a valve or its repair if there is no need for a replacement and your heart can be repaired. During every beat of our heart, the flaps in the heart valves open and close. The best cardiologist in Kolkata performs a heart valve surgery or a heart valve repair surgery when the valves aren’t able to close properly anymore. Whether you need to undergo a repair surgery or minimally invasive heart surgery or open-heart valve surgery, depends on the severity of the case. A number of factors ranging from your health to your age play a major role in the doctor’s decision about your treatment option.
