Heart Disease is the number one cause of untimely deaths in the world. Bad lifestyle choices is the main cause for cardiac disease. Fatty food, lack of exercise, stress, smoking and alcohol are bad for heart health. Genetics also plays an important role in heart disease. Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) is the most common amongst the heart diseases. Another problem that is common is irregular heart beats, medically called arrhythmia. The treatment for slow heart beat or bradycardia is done in India with high success rate through Pacemaker Insertion at some of the best hospitals by top doctors.
Other heart diseases include blockage in heart arteries, calcification or blockage in aortic or mitral valve, hole in the heart, increase in the heart size, reduced blood pumping etc. Patients with irregular heart rate, Cardiac or Heart Failure are also very commonly treated in India by the heart specialist through pacemaker and ICD devices.
Pacemaker is a battery operated electronic device that is used by cardiologists in India to regulate the rhythm of heart beat of the patient. In India it is mostly done in cases of patients with problem of low heart rate called bradycardia. The pacemaker device sends small impulses to the heart to maintain the normal heart rate. A pacemaker insertion is different from ICD. Both Pacemaker and ICD are implanted in the chest of the patient but pacemaker can only send low impulse to the heart whereas an ICD can send low and high impluse. Also ICD can be used both for slow and fast heart rate whereas pacemaker is for slow heart rate.
Pacemaker is minimally invasive procedure performed by interventional cardiologist. In India pacemaker insertion is very common. There are certain restrictions post pacemaker insertion. You cannot undergo MRI scan and also cannot come in the area of magnetic interference.
