A particularly unique procedure performed at NH is Pulmonary Endarterectomy (PEA). It is a complex surgery to remove blood clots from the pulmonary arteries in the lungs (chronic pulmonary embolism, a condition which is particularly prevalent in India). This procedure has significant benefits and the results are superior to other treatments; many patients no longer suffer from shortness of breath, have a better quality of life and enjoy longer life expectancies. Narayana Health’s hospitals are among the few in the country performing this potentially life-changing procedure and having performed over 500 surgeries, is among the most experienced.
Left Ventricular Assisted Device (LVAD)
Due to a cardiac seizure, the heart becomes weak and can't maintain adequate blood flow to meet an individual’s body requirement. Usually, the affected patient can barely walk, talk or even lie down flat. Patients who have reached the terminal stages are recommended to undergo an LVAD implantation. Narayana Health was among the first to offer this implant in the country. Once implanted it takes over the entire blood pumping function of the heart and the patient gets a new lease of life, along with a few lifestyle restrictions. It can be used either as a "Bridge to transplant”, that is, to keep the patient well until a heart is available for transplantation. It can also be used as "Destination therapy", making it a permanent solution for patients who are not suitable for transplants.
