Cardiac catheterisation is a technique where catheters are inserted via veins and arteries to access the heart – both for diagnosis and for treatment.
Doing such procedures in children requires a very high level of skill and expertise and also the best quality infrastructure and machines.
The Pediatric Cardiac Team of Amrita Hospital is world-renowned for its cardiac catheterisation program that takes care of patients ranging from just-born babies to adults with congenital heart disease.
Many procedures have been pioneered at Amrita like multiple coil-closure of PDA, newborn PDA-stenting etc.
Many “first-in-india” and “first-in-world” procedures have been successfully performed here. E.g, India’s first transcatheter pulmonary valve implantation using the Venus P Valve.
