Coronary Artery Intervention

Coronary artery disease is a condition involving narrowed or blocked blood heart vessels. Depending on the severity and location of your blockages, our specialists will advise on the appropriate treatment option for you. 

In general, mild narrowing can be treated with medication. Severe narrowing of the arteries may require intervention with ballooning (angioplasty), stent implantation or surgical bypass operation.

What is it

This commonly performed and minimally invasive procedure involves inserting a narrow tube called a catheter through an artery in your wrist or groin. By using X-ray and a special dye injected through the catheter, we can see your coronary arteries and check for any blockages that may affect the blood flow to your heart.

Your doctor may recommend it for

  • Diagnosing coronary artery disease and determining the most suitable treatment.

What is it

We will inflate a tiny balloon inside the narrowed artery to widen it. Most of the time, a stent is also implanted to keep the artery open.

Your doctor may recommend it for

  • Widening significantly narrowed blood vessels in the heart.

What is it

Complex coronary intervention are advanced techniques that require specialised equipment and greater technical skills. We perform the following based on each patient’s unique condition. 

Coronary orbital atherectomy: Gently “sands” down calcium plaque in the arteries to restore flexibility to the arterial walls, making them more amenable to ballooning and stent implantation.

Intravascular lithotripsy (IVL): Uses sonic waves delivered via a catheter to break up calcium buildup in the coronary arteries, making them more amenable to ballooning and stent implantation.

Rotational atherectomy: Removes hard, calcified plaque buildup using a tiny diamond-tipped drill.

What is it

Major surgery that creates a new path for blood to flow freely to the heart. A healthy blood vessel from another part of the body attached to the heart, bypassing blocked or narrowed sections of the artery.

  • Treating blockages when less invasive procedures like angioplasty is not suitable for you.
