Specialities

The cardiology department at Aster RV provides a wide range of preventive care services, heart care screening, advanced diagnostic tests, cardiac rehabilitation, invasive and non-invasive procedures, post-operative management, and other surgical procedures.

The cardiology department is dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the blood vessels and lymphatic system. We provide a wide range of treatments, such as open repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms, thoracoabdominal aneurysms, and thoracic aortic aneurysms. It includes stent grafts, balloon angioplasty stenting in vascular areas, open surgical reconstructions, carotid artery stenting, carotid endarterectomy, bypass surgery, and peripheral artery disease.

Aster RV is the best cardiac hospital in Bangalore and is specialised in the treatment of heart diseases related to lung disorders, such as hypertension, cardiac sarcoidosis, and other rare diseases. We offer comprehensive pulmonary hypertension treatment and provide evaluation for shortness of breath with preventive cardiology, exercise, and exercise physiology. Our experts provide nutrition and diet advice to enhance cardiac health and reduce the risk of heart diseases and conditions.

At Aster RV, we treat the person, not the disorder. Our team of cardiologists in Bangalore work closely with other healthcare providers right from initial treatment. We provide comprehensive cardiovascular evaluation and consultation with state-of-the-art cardiac testing. Our heart specialists diagnose and treat heart disorders, such as high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, heart valve problems, heart failure, and high cholesterol.

Aster RV has dedicated services in the field of cardiac care and the cardiothoracic vascular surgery department is well-equipped with advanced modern surgical technologies.

Key Procedures

Treatment and Procedures

Therapeutic and Interventional Procedures

  • Coronary Angiogram

  • Coronary Angioplasty: also called percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for the treatment of coronary artery disease.

  • Complex PCI – bifurcation, CTO, Image and physiology guided PCI, rotablation, IABP

  • Coronary thrombectomy which involves removing a blood clot from the coronary arteries

  • Peripheral vascular disease intervention which involves the other arteries like renal, carotids, subclavian, mesenteric, femoral or distal lower limb vessels

  • Aortic Interventions – TEVAR, EVAR, coarctation stenting and so on

  • Percutaneous valve repair – balloon mitral valvotomy, balloon aortic valvotomy and balloon pulmonary valvotomy

  • Percutaneous valve replacement – Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVI), Transcatheter pulmonary valve replacement and Transcatheter mitral valve replacement.

  • Congenital heart defect correction: like atrial and ventricular septal defects- device closures and device closure of patent ductus arteriosus (ASD, VSD & PDA)

  • Structural heart interventions– LA appendage closure, paravalvular leak closure, ruptured sinus of valsalva device closure, Post-MI VSR device closure and so on

  • Bailout percutaneous pediatric interventions– balloon atrial septostomy, PDA stenting and so on

  • Cardiac catheterization with hemodynamic assessment for congenital heart disease, cardiomyopathies, valve lesions, pulmonary hypertension.

  • Cardiac pacemakers – single chamber and dual chamber

  • Implantable Cardioverter (ICD/ AICD)

  • Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT)

Diagnostic Services include (adult and paediatric)
  • 12 lead ECG

  • 2D and 3D Echocardiography including colour Doppler and contrast ECHO
