Narayana Institute of Vascular Sciences is Narayana Health's commitment to providing latest and world-class tertiary level vascular care, education and research to the people of India and beyond.
It is based on the principles of prevention, surgical and endovascular treatments and strict follow-up of vascular patients endeavoring to prevent strokes in high-risk groups, deaths due to Aneurysm ruptures, Limb Amputation in Diabetics and clotting in lower limb arteries and veins and their sequels.
The department performs over 1200 open and 800 endovascular procedures each year. We also perform large volumes of Aortic Aneurysm Repairs in India, both open and endovascular with results on par with the top institutes of United States of America. We have a dedicated Hybrid Operation Theatre to perform major arch, thoracic and thoracoabdominal hybrid and fenestrated graft repairs at Health City, Bangalore.
We collaborate among the different specialties dedicated to providing comprehensive and interdisciplinary care to patients with atherosclerosis, the process in which fatty materials, cholesterol, and other substances, collectively known as plaque, accumulate in the lining of an artery. When plaques become fragile and rupture, they cause blood clots that can block blood flow or break off and travel to another part of the body, causing a heart attack, limb loss or stroke.
Our Institute's emphasis on collaboration has shown to greatly improve the care patients receive allowing both established and emerging diagnostic and therapeutic methods to be applied, increasing efficiency and reducing risks to patients. Multi-disciplinary team meetings and protocol development an important part of a close partnership with specialties involved in the direct care of our vascular patients.
With the establishment of a non-invasive vascular lab at NH Health City, equipped with the latest multi-lab II and acquisition of TcPO2 machine, we are able to diagnose and treat diabetic feet with vascular compromise.
Convatec and Narayana Health have embarked on an ambitious Diabetic Wound Care and Amputation Prevention Centre at NH Health City, with the latest equipment to assess diabetic wounds and care for them.
The presence of Thrombosis Research Institute at Health City in Bangalore is a great source for detailed investigations of a cause of vascular clotting disorders and research into solutions for better vascular care in India.
The arterial disease affects most people with age, especially in those who have high-risk factors that include patients who suffer from diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, a sedentary lifestyle, a family history of vascular disease (e.g. Aneurysms), poor nutritional habits or heavy smokers.
Patients with poor circulation usually have diseased arteries all over their body. Arteries usually affected are in the legs, heart, and neck. The severity of the disease and length of time it goes untreated can make a tremendous difference in the clinical outcome of a vascular disease, characterized by stroke, limb amputations or death.
