For the first time in the region, Anil Baghi Hospital, the NABH-accredited super specialty hospital and No. 1 ranked hospital in Punjab by the National Health Authority and State Health Agencies Punjab, is now offering advanced ultrasound-guided stenting technology to treat patients suffering from heart attacks. This innovative approach utilizes Intravascular Ultrasound (IVUS) technology from Boston, USA, empowering doctors to precisely place stents during angioplasty procedures, leading to better patient outcomes.
IVUS provides real-time imaging of the inside of arteries, allowing doctors to visualize blockages and accurately position stents. This improved visibility results in several benefits for patients:
- Exact Stent Implantation: Ensures accurate stent placement, reducing the risk of complications like re-blockage and stent migration.
- Reduced Complications: Minimizes the likelihood of side effects associated with traditional stenting methods.
- Improved Stent Life: Precise placement promotes optimal stent function and longevity.
“We are proud to be the first hospital in the region to offer this cutting-edge technology,” said Dr. Saurabh Baghi, CEO & Cardiologist at Anil Baghi Hospital. “IVUS-guided stenting represents a significant advancement in cardiac care, offering our patients improved accuracy, safety and long-term benefits.”
Dr. Prof. Amal Kanti Sen, renowned Interventional Cardiologist at Anil Baghi Hospital, will be leading this program. Patients seeking more information or consultations can contact the hospital’s toll-free number 1800 309 2730 or helpline number 98550-54958.
