Doctor at Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Narayana Superspeciality Hospital has proved their clinical expertise in cardiac care gain by saving a 75 year old male from a complex heart condition. The team had treated the patient using minimal invasive intervention called left main bifurcation stenting.

A 75 year male hailing from Rajouriwas brought to Narayana Hospital with complains of chest pain. On enquiry about the medical history of the patient it was revealed that the patient had undergone coronary angiography and he was diagnosed with double vessel disease with critical left main involvement. Patient was adviseda CABG at the earlier hospital where he got tested himself. The cardiology department under Dr Sushant Kumar, Senior Consultant Cardiologist did a thorough evaluation of the patient again. A CTVS consultation for CABG was done. It was identified that he had very poor Left Ventricle function which further increases the risk involved with the surgery itself. However in this case, apart from the heart condition he was suffering from multiple co-morbidities like renal dysfunction, COPD a type of lung pathology which further increase his risk for CABG Surgery. Further his age was also not on his side. Dr Sushantdecided to explore options beyond CABG surgery which includes Complex Coronary Interventions , Minimal Invasive CABG, Medical Management and others. Meanwhile patient continued to have chest pain despite trials of antianginals. A multidisciplinary heart team approach was formed which included Dr Sushant Kumar-Senior cardiologist, Dr Sumit Modi- Senior CTVS surgeon, Dr Deepak Sharma- Senior Nephrologist and Dr Triputi Modi heading Anaesthesia team. After detailed discussion within themselves and with the patient’srelatives, the team of doctors suggested left main bifurcation stenting. Patient underwent angioplasty with stent placement into left main and LAD (left anterior descending artery) successfully.

Explaining about the case Dr SushantKumar Senior Cardiologist at Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Narayana Superspeciality Hospital, said, “This case was a complex one as he was suffering not only from double vessel disease with critical left main involvement but also with poor LV function which could have resulted in patient going into acute fulminant heart failure.If we had gone ahead with CABG Surgery as was already advised we could have lost the patient. We successfully did the Left main bifurcation stenting by radial artery route which requires simulatenous placement of 2 stents across the bifurcation with adequate covering of the diseased vessel and without restricting the flow inside the vessel or at the ostium of the vessel. Post angioplasty patient haemodynamics improved. The patient also felt a drastic relief from pain. Patient was discharged on the 3rd day of the surgery.” Relief of pain was an intergralsymptom which make the intervention a success he stated further.

Dr JP Singh, Clinical Director of SMVD Narayana Hospital stated that“The Cardiology department at SMVD Naryana Hospital has always tried to remain at the fore front of rapidly evolving technological advances in the field of Interventional Cardiology. This particular patient is a case in point of an advanced technique used hare that is not routinely available at all the cardiac centres. At the end of the day patient safety stays our foremost goal, and our endeavours remain to bring the most complex,recent and advanced techniques available in any speciality to our patients too to provide the expected standard of care any where in the world.”

Sharing his joy, the patient stated , “As you enter old age your biggest wish is to be able to lead a near normal life with less co-morbidities and dependence on others. The team at Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Narayana Superspeciality Hospital headed by Dr Sushant has helped me with that and I am thankful to them for that.”
