With increasing heart problems, medical field is also coming up with new and effective treatments. If medication and lifestyle changes are not enough to control your symptoms then you will find all round assistance at BLK with:
Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT): An electrical instrument is placed in the heart in order to reduce the risk of heart failure. CRT is a surgical procedure wherein a pacemaker, which is a small battery device, is placed in heart to help it function in a coordinated manner.
Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD): If a patient is suffering from dangerously fast hearbeats or ‘Venticular Tachycardia/Ventricular Fibrillation’ then the doctor may suggest for Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator. The Implantable Cardioverter or ICD is an implant placed to normalise the dangerous heartbeat by sending electric signals. Fast heartbeats or ‘Venticular Tachycardia’/’Ventricular Fibrillation’ is a severe disorder and may be a fatal one if not treated. In some critical cases both CRT and ICD are placed at the same time using one device.
Heart Pumps: A heart pump or Ventricular Assist Device is placed in the heart in an open heart surgery to unable an ailing heart to pump enough blood to the body. The pump accentuates the function heart.
Heart Transplantation: Heart Transplantation is a complex surgery which involves replacing a non-working heart of a patient with a donated one. It is opted in most critical cases when revival of heart function by any medication or surgery is not possible. The donor can be a patient who has died and have chosen to donate his/her organs or a brain dead person whose family has agreed for donating the vital organs.
