We have outlined here for you the many conditions whose treatment is done by Dr. Sarita Gulati:
Interventional procedures are required for people with structural heart conditions so that they can live a healthy life. With world class equipments and the help of modern technology the doctor can deliver the best treatment to patients. It is essential that when procedures are performed on patients with these conditions, they are followed up with best of post procedural care.
Signs and symptoms with patients having structural or non-coronary cardiovascular diseases are as follows:
Fatigue and chest pain are a sign that the person needs immediate solution to their heart condition. A structural heart issue can lead to high blood pressure for prolonged periods of time. Further, if not treated in time structural heart conditions can start affecting the kidney and even lead to kidney dysfunction.
Six days a week, 10 am to 7 pm are the operating hours of the doctor. The skill and efficiency shown by the interventional cardiologist has been seen time and again and the patient reviews make it clear.
Here is the list of the popular procedures that Dr. Sarita Gulati performs::
The solution for blocked arteries because of coronary heart disease has been through procedures like placement of stent, angioplasty and atherectomy for a long time now. In order to resolve the issue of abnormal heart rhythms another very common procedure that is performed is the insertion of the pacemaker and defibrillator.

Most physicians advise their patients to undergo the angiogram procedure (also known as angiography and arteriogram) when certain symptoms such as a heart attack or chest pain become a source of worry. A stress test is performed on patients who report chest pain, which is then followed by an angiogram test.
Angiography procedure aims at testing the blockages in the coronary arteries apart from any other cardiovascular-related ailments. Angiography and angiogram procedure can both locate narrowing arteries or blockages that may exist in different parts of the body.
Angiography is recommended for patients with coronary heart diseases (CHD), which can cause the heartbeat to stop suddenly and abruptly. The patient may also suffer from severe chest pain. Angiography can also be performed on patients on an emergency basis when they experience a heart attack. If the blockage is not treated immediately, then healthy tissues around the heart start perishing and turn into scar tissue. It can give rise to several long-lasting problems. Angiography may also be required in the case of a patient with aortic stenosis or those who have had an abnormal heart stress test.
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is one of the most common heart diseases reported across the world. It results due to blood clot formation and plaque accumulation in the major blood vessels of the heart.
Balloon angioplasty is the most common endovascular procedure (procedure performed inside the blood vessel) carried out to treat coronary artery disease. In this procedure, the blood clots in the major arteries of the heart are detected and cleared by inserting a catheter into an artery of the hand (radial artery) or leg (femoral artery). This catheter consists of a balloon at its tip, which dislodges the clot to the periphery of the blood vessel after inflation.
Angioplasty may or may not be followed by coronary stent placement, depending on the angiography findings. This procedure is performed in patients with fewer blood clots in the vessels and those who do not respond to medications. It may also be carried out as an emergency procedure to treat a heart attack.
Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a surgical procedure in which heat generated from medium frequency alternating current is used to ablate a tumour, a part of the electrical conduction system of the heart, or any other dysfunctional areas. The ablation therapy requires local anaesthesia and is done in an outpatient setting.
RFA is a popular treatment for the correction of any abnormality in the electrical system of the heart, which is confirmed during electrophysiology studies (EPS). During this test, the electrophysiology of heart is studied and any abnormalities are noted. The procedure used to correct the identified abnormalities associated with electrophysiology of heart is known as the cardiac ablation procedure.
Diagnostic and screening tests are prescribed or performed by interventional cardiologists to find the right solution for your heart condition. The numerous procedures performed by the interventional cardiologists ensure that the structural and cardiovascular heart issues are resolved. The doctor can adroitly manage emergency heart conditions such as heart attacks. Any distress or discomfort which indicates a heart condition must be dealt with immediately by consulting the doctor.
We have outlined for you the several tests that are important before and during consultation with an Interventional Cardiologist:
The right treatment can be decided by the doctor basis the recommended tests and their results. The blood vessel and heart health become apparent after the test results come in.
Eating well, exercising regularly and a balanced lifestyle, no smoking or drinking ensures a healthy heart. Interventional cardiology techniques can help resolve the structural defects in your heart or cardiovascular issues if any. Interventional cardiologists treat heart conditions with catheter-based treatments which are non surgical. If on your visit to the cardiologist you realise that the dietary and lifestyle changes are not enough they may refer you to this doctor.
