Coronary care

Mediclinic City Hospital’s Heart and Vascular Centre provides 24/7 coronary intervention procedures including the treatment of heart attacks requiring emergency angioplasty and stenting.

Our highly trained staff of cardiologists, nurses and cardiac technologists is vastly experienced in performing all diagnostic and therapeutic coronary procedures including:

  • Primary percutaneous coronary intervention (Primary PCI, formerly known as angioplasty with stent), a non-surgical emergency procedure, where we use a catheter to place a stent to open up blocked blood vessels in the heart that are causing a heart attack
  • Complex coronary interventions
    • Chronic total occlusion (CTO)
    • Left main stem
    • Bifurcation lesions
  • Coronary atherectomy - complex coronary disease interventions to treat heavily calcifiedarteries with extensive buildup of calcium inside the vessel
  • Coronary artery fistulas – an interventional procedure to close abnormal coronary artery communications
  • Coronary artery aneurysms procedure to treat abnormal dilations of coronary arteries

The Heart and Vascular Centre has two state-of-the-art cardiac catheterisation laboratories, supported by a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic tools including:

  • Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS)
  • Optical coherence tomography (OCT)
  • Coronary physiology assessment  (FFR, IFR)
  • Shockwave balloons
  • Rotational atherectomy
  • Orbital atherectomy  
  • Mechanical circulatory support provided by:
    • Intra-aortic balloon pump
    • Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO)
    • Ventricular assist devices. 

Our multidisciplinary team has a track record of outstanding procedural outcomes matching international standards. The Heart and Vascular Centre is dedicated to adopting emerging cutting edge technologies and innovations to provide the highest level of care to patients with coronary artery disease. 

  • 24/7 primary PCI
  • Complex percutaneous coronary interventions (angioplasty)
  • Left main coronary artery interventions
