Unlike conventional single-plane Cath labs, the Bi-Plane Cath Lab yields three-dimensional images, resulting in less radiation exposure and shorter patient stays.

Gleneagles Hospital in Parel, Mumbai, has unveiled a state-of-the-art Bi-Plane Cath Lab, integrating AI to elevate cardiac care standards.

The advanced Cath Lab promises faster diagnosis, reduced radiation exposure, and improved treatment outcomes, aiming to address the growing cardiac concerns prevalent among the population.

The inauguration ceremony of the facility saw the presence of Actor Shreyas Talpade alongside the esteemed medical team, including Dr Nitin Dange, Dr Sameer V Pagad, Dr Praveen Kulkarni, and Dr Vivek Talaulikar.

With a noticeable surge in cardiac ailments attributed to factors such as high-stress levels, sedentary lifestyles, poor dietary habits, and inadequate awareness about heart health, the introduction of the advanced lab is expected to offer timely intervention to patients grappling with complex cardiac issues.

Enhanced Cardiac Care

Per the hospital, unlike conventional single-plane Cath labs, the Bi-Plane Cath Lab is equipped with two C-arms for imaging, allowing for simultaneous data capture from perpendicular angles of two different planes.

This innovative approach yields three-dimensional images, resulting in reduced radiation exposure and shorter patient hospital stays.

Dr Sameer Pagad and Dr Praveen Kulkarni, the team of interventional cardiologists at Gleneagles Hospitals, Parel, Mumbai, emphasized the significance of the Bi-Plane Cath Lab in delivering precise diagnostics and facilitating minimally invasive procedures, ultimately leading to improved patient outcomes.

Dr Nitin Dange, director of interventional neurology, stroke care, and neurosurgery, said, "The Biplane CathLab is equipped with two C-Arms to obtain multiple images in one swift move. This avoids the need for multiple injections of contrast dye and repeated exposure to radiation for a given procedure.’’

According to Dange, the CathLab is a high-specification advanced neuro-interventional tool for reducing complications and helps in better treating complex neurovascular and spinal vascular diseases including intracranial aneurysm treatment, AVM, ICAD, and acute strokes.

Spinal AVMS and AVFS also can be easily treated with better outcomes and minimal complications, noted Dange.

Dr Vivek Talaulikar, COO, IHH Healthcare India, highlighted that with its cutting-edge technology and advanced equipment, the lab enables precise diagnostics and minimally invasive procedures, reaffirming the hospital's commitment to delivering top-notch healthcare services by embracing medical innovation.

As cardiac issues continue to affect individuals across all age groups, Actor Shreyas Talpade emphasized the importance of prompt diagnosis and treatment. Stressing the significance of regular cardiac screening, he urged everyone to stay vigilant about their heart health to mitigate risks and ensure timely intervention, thereby saving lives.

In a similar development focusing on cardiac care, Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital collaborated with Switzerland-based SmartCardia, a leading provider of cardiac monitoring solutions, to bolster the treatment and management of cardiac arrhythmia.

A key highlight of the collaboration is the introduction of the SmartCardia 7L patch, a breakthrough in cardiac monitoring technology. This patch enables real-time transmission of electrocardiogram (ECG) data and multiple vital signs, facilitating early detection of severe cardiac arrhythmia conditions.
