Technology and Infrastructure

We are now equipped with Medistim VeriQC, Intraoperative ultrasound imaging machine system which first of its kind in India. This imaging system is used in cardiac surgery to assess GRAFT flow/ perfusion in coronary bypass surgery. It enables the surgeon to locate intramyocardial coronaries which are not seen on surface of the heart. Cardiac surgeons can now assess the percentage of coronary block/ stenosis by epicardial doppler probe to decide about the graft ability of coronary vessel. Epiaortic ultrasound helps to avoid brain stroke from atherosclerotic plaques in ascending aorta and measurement of graft flow intraoperatively.
