 Madras Medical Mission Introduces Advanced Cardiology Device

In a first of its kind development, the Madras Medical Mission has introduced a state-of-the-art device that has the potential to improve care for complex heart diseases.

The 3-D Electro Anatomic Mapping System or the ENSITE Velocity System from St. Jude, U.S. will help doctors zero in on the exact site in the heart that is causing abnormal heart rhythms.


"The imagery provides a close look at the electrical system of the heart, localize the arrhythmia and deliver highly targeted interventions," said Ulhas Pandurangi, senior consultant cardiologist at MMM.

He added that simple cases responded well to cath lab procedures like ablation, but complex cases proved to be an issue. The new system may be able to double the success rates in treatment of complex arrhythmias.

"The diagnostic accuracy in localising the arrhythmia is also safer for patients and treating cardiologists as it greatly lowers the exposure to radiation," said Ajit Mullasari, Director, Cardiology. The new device will provide an accurate 3-D picture of the heart structure.
