Overview

The Department of Adult Cardiology at Amrita Hospital in Kochi is a leading centre in Kerala and beyond. With a team of highly skilled cardiologists, resident cardiologists, and paramedical staff, the department provides top-quality heart care. We have achieved numerous milestones and are known for our innovative medical procedures and patient-centered approach. The department offers a wide range of specialized services and expertise in areas such as Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM), cardio-oncology, Heart failure, and amyloidosis. Having evolved as a leader in the fight against cardiovascular disorders in Kerala, it serves about 50,000 cardiovascular patients annually.

Rapid lifestyle changes of developing economies have resulted in an unprecedented heart disease epidemic. 

Along with preventive measures that involve healthcare planning, public education, and lifestyle changes, facilities to take care of the immediate consequences of heart disease have become the need of the day.

The Amrita Team focuses on medical and surgical management of all types of cardiac ailments including primary and secondary prevention and rehabilitation.

Accordingly, the program specializes in minimal access cardiac surgery, "beating heart" off-pump bypass surgery, as well as intensifying patient health education and disease prevention, outreach programs, specialized training and research programs.

Diseases Treated

The department provides comprehensive medical and surgical management for all types of cardiac ailments, including primary and secondary prevention, cardiac rehabilitation, and specialized treatments. We specialize in treating conditions such as Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy, cardio-oncology, amyloidosis, and offer expertise in coronary interventions, valvuloplasty, peripheral interventions, and cardiac device implantations.

Out Patient Services

The outpatient facility is structured for general evaluation of patients with chest pain and various forms of heart diseases. With the best biomedical equipment, the diagnostic work up is performed with the least amount of patient discomfort and high levels of accuracy. The multidisciplinary team provides heart care services for cardiac patients who may also have coexistent medical problems. For a majority of patients, the diagnosis, treatment planning and recommendations are completed in a single day. To book appointments contact: 0484 2851553

Services Offered

Adult cardiology team at Amrita Hospital, Kochi provides advanced treatment to patients with various cardiovascular disorders. For an immediate response, a 24-hour emergency team with a mobile intensive care unit provides speedy access in emergencies. The department is fully equipped to provide intensive and multidisciplinary, comprehensive medical care for patients with complex, multiple disorders.


ECHOCARDIOGRAPHIC HEMODYNAMIC LABORATORY

The heart has a complex, multi-dimensional shape. A proper assessment of the function of its parts requires a multi-dimensional depiction of its structural and functional intricacies. This complex physical relationship can be studied using reflections from high frequency sound waves, called ultrasound, which can give information on blood and heart muscle motion.  

Services offered included in echocardiography:

  • Trans-thoracic Echocardiography
  • Trans-esophageal Echocardiography
  • Tissue Doppler Imaging (tissue velocity and strain imaging)
  • 3D Echocardiography
  • Contrast Echocardiography
  • Pharmacological Stress Echocardiography
  • Intra-operative Echocardiography

Five advanced echo labs are in the outpatient department.

Echo machines are also used in the Cath lab, Surgical theaters and ICUs.

MULTI DETECTOR COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY (MDCT)

For the imaging of cerebrovascular, cardiac, visceral and peripheral vasculatures, CT coronary angiography using a 256 slice CT scanner enables accurate, noninvasive detection of significant coronary artery disease in patients hospitalized for acute chest pain syndrome and negative biomarkers. It is also useful for screening patients with intermediate risk for developing coronary artery disease. It is now the preferred diagnostic modality for evaluating blood clots on arteries supplying lungs (pulmonary embolism).

Diagnosis and treatment planning with nonoperative techniques for aortic aneurysms (thinning and bulging) as well as the dissection of the aorta needs good quality picture generated by MDCT. Occlusion of blood supply to legs, hands and other organs can also be accurately quantified by this technique.

CARDIAC MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING (MRI) 3 TESLA

This imaging is very useful in assessing the damage of heart muscles caused by heart attack, as well as:

  • Evaluation of heart failure
  • Detection and quantification of heart defects present at birth
  • Tumors of the heart
  • Pericarditis (inflammation of the sac covering the heart)
  • Evaluation of arrhythmogenic RV dysplasia, sarcoidonic and other causes of ventricular arrhythmia and heart failure

NUCLEAR CARDIOLOGY

Using radioisotopes as a diagnostic tool, it is possible to assess the function of the heart and its blood supply. Our sophisticated facility has a Siemens gamma camera to perform the following procedures:

  • Thallium and MIBI perfusion studies
  • Viability testing
  • MUGA (Ventriculogram)
  • Ventilation perfusion lung scans
  • Renal perfusion scans
  • Tc labelled RBC venogram for DVT

POSITRON EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY (PET) MRI

Positron emission tomography, also called PET imaging or a PET scan, is a type of nuclear medicine imaging. Combined with an MRI, it is used to identify patients with damaged heart muscles likely to benefit from angioplasty and bypass surgery. It is also effective in determining the blood flow to the heart as well as infections and cancers.

SYNCOPE (FAINTING) EVALUATION

Holter monitoring and head-up tilt tests with pharmacological challenges are utilized for the evaluation of patients with syncope. Detailed expert clinical assessments and implantation of Loop recorder as well as EP study in selected patients is conducted when necessary. 

Coronary Care Unit (CCU)

The unit is staffed by a specially trained physician and nurses capable of serving patients with heart attack, heart failure and arrhythmias. This 24-bed facility provides care for the sick patients who may require ventilatory support, invasive and noninvasive advanced life support such as emergency pacing (trans-venous and trans-thoracic) and intra-aortic balloon pump support for a failing heart. Hemodynamic monitoring including blood gas analysis enables the management of patients on various therapeutic medications for heart attack and heart failure. CCU protocols help to provide therapies per guidelines and recommendations. Infection control protocols, 1:1 critical care nursing, and the 24x7 availability of a trained physician/cardiologist code blue team have helped in improving outcomes in our CCU, and ensure immediate access to our cathlab.


CARDIAC CATHETERIZATION LABORATORY

The cardiac catheterization lab is equipped with a twin suite Siemens HICOR digital imaging system which is fully networked. The Cath Lab is one of the larger volume centers in India and with the outstanding results achieved so far, the Amrita Cath Lab has played a role in elevating the hospital to national prominence.

The Comprehensive Cardiac Health Checkup identifies high risk individuals and recommends lifestyle modification and drugs for primary prevention of coronary artery disease. Secondary prevention is enabled by risk factor identification, counseling, diet modification and with treatment of associated problems like diabetes mellitus with drugs, during hospitalization.

Our Philosophy

The department follows a patient-centric approach, focusing on comprehensive evaluation, personalized care, and a cooperative and integrative heart team concept. They prioritize patient education, disease prevention, and cardiac rehabilitation to promote overall heart health and well-being.
