KMC Hospital, Mangaluru soon to have latest technology Rotablator and 3D mapping system for heart disease treatment.
Dr Annapoorna Kini, director Cath Lab and Interventional Cardiology, professor of cardiology, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, NY will inaugurate the rotablator and Dr Jayaprakash Shenthar, professor, electrophysiology unit, Sri Jayadeva Institute of Cardiovascular Science and Research, Bengaluru will inaugurate the mapping system.
Dr R L Kamath, HOD of cardiology said, "Rotablator technology can remove plaque by abrading atherosclerotic material producing millions of micro particle smaller than RBC which are cleared by RE System."
The technology improves success rate and reduces re-stenosis rate in coronary angioplasty. The 3D mapping system can treat complex irregular heart rhythms with better accuracy and efficiency.
The latest technology known as 3D cardiac mapping will help to localize the area of reason for tachycardia to utmost accuracy. This is possible using highly sophisticated algorithm with minimal of x-rays and painless catheter ablation to the spot thus providing better solutions to patient's arrhythmic woes.
Saghir Siddiqui, unit head, KMC Hospital said, "We have taken new stride in enabling the electrophysiologists to have better control with this facility and less risk during EP procedures culminating in improved and better treatment of its patients."
