Heart Treatment

Heart Treatment Without Bypass Surgery In Pune

ESMR (Extracorporeal Shockwave Myocardial Revascularization ) has become one of the successful methodologies of non-invasive treatments for improving the blood supply to the heart muscles which also known as Non-invasive Cardiac Angiogenesis Therapy. As a dependable heart treatment without angioplasty, bypass surgery, the ESMR treatment in India is fast gaining popularity. The patients who would like to avoid angioplasty, bypass surgery, Hridayam ESMR Center has introduced this concept in their clinic which is very beneficial.

Why ESMR and how it works

The Non-invasive treatment ESMR has a huge advantage lies in the fact that it can be successfully deployed to treat the symptoms of Ischemic myocardial areas that cannot be accessed otherwise by other therapies such as Bypass or Angioplasty. The main reason behind deploying ESMR treatment in Pune can be either due to exhaustion of all other avenues or the possibility of achieving only partial results through conventional procedures. The new ray of hope that complements the existing treatment methodologies will be offered by ESMR Treatment in India.

Prior to the commencement of the procedure, the exact location of the ischemic zone (treatment zone) is identified using the ultrasound imaging system. shockwaves that are mild in nature are targeted to the treatment zone through the anatomical acoustic window. These acoustic waves create shear stress on the vessel wall and stimulate the growth of new blood vessels and expand their network around the blocked arteries, which in turn enhances the quantum of blood supply to the heart and reduces the occurrences of angina.

3 treatments per week at 5-10 ischemic zones, 100 shocks per zone, 0.09 mj/mm2

Treatment Strategy

” At each treatment session, shock waves are to be delivered to the border of the ischemic area triggering the viable tissue for angiogenesis “

Treatment Duration

After conducting the preliminary tests and screening procedures and ascertaining the suitability of the candidature, the treatment sessions are initiated. Typically each session lasts for half an hour and the total treatment lasts for nine sessions that are spread across a period of three months.

Side Effects

During the treatment procedure, only tickling effect is felt no more pain will feel. It does not carry any associated risk factors. Being an outpatient and non-invasive procedure, sedatives are also not required. In short, no short term or long term side effects are reported until now.

• Equipment (Cardiospec system, disposables)
• Technical support
• Staff trained in ESMR and proficient in echocardiography.
• Sufficient number of a patient based on indications/contraindications
• Pre-treatment testing: location and viability of ischemic tissue
• Patient agreement for the procedure (9 weeks)

Advantages

  • It can be employed for treatment where it is not possible through bypass surgeries or angioplasty.
  • Absolutely painless
  • The patients can again be treated if necessary without any restrictions.

Results

The success of ESMR will be measured through qualitative techniques. The patient would be more energetic and indulge in an active lifestyle as before. He would also experience nil or only a few episodes of angina with less pain.

The heart patients who are deprived of other chances due to various reasons that include medical conditions, the ESMR Treatment offer the new ray of hope for them.
