Emergency Number



Cardiology Center is the heart of Vydehi Superspeciality Hospital and is amongst the leaders for non-invasive and invasive cardiology in the city of Bengaluru, South India. The center has evolved and progressed over the past decade in the field of cardiology in tandem with new emerging technologies and enhanced cardiac care to give heart patients recent modalities of treatment. The hospital has some of India’s best talent from its panel of cardiologists and is equipped to care. Vydehi Superspeciality Hospital’s world-class stature is testified by the fact that it is the country’s first multi-specialty hospital to get ISO 9002 recognition. The heart center annually performs over 500 angioplasties and over 2500 diagnostic Catheterization procedures. The Cardiology Center at Vydehi Superspciality Hospital, thus, has become the best hospital for cardiology in Bangalore.

Infrastructure And Facilities In Cardiology

Department of Cardiology is one of the leaders in non-invasive and invasive cardiology in the city of Bengaluru. The center has evolved and progressed over the past decade in the field of cardiology in tandem with new emerging technologies and enhanced cardiac care to give heart patients recent modalities of treatment. The department houses the best cardiologist, i.e., heart specialists in Bangalore. All of the above facilities combined with the best team of cardiologists make Cardiology Center at VSH makes it the best heart hospital in Bangalore.

The stress test (or exercise test) is one of the most common screening tests used to diagnose the presence of, and the extent of, coronary artery disease. A stress test, sometimes called a treadmill test or exercise test, helps the doctor find out how well your heart handles its workload. This information sheet answers the following regarding having a stress test:
  • Why Do I Need A Stress Test?
  • What Happens During The Test?
  • What Is Monitored During The Test?
  • What Equipment Is Used?
  • Is There A Risk?

Holter Monitoring

In Holter monitoring (ambulatory electrocardiography), a lightweight, portable monitor records the electrocardiogram for 24 hours while the wearer goes about his or her normal day. This study can be useful in diagnosing abnormal heart rhythm symptoms.

Tran esophageal echocardiogram (TEE)

Since sound waves travel poorly through the bone, lung, and thick chest walls, the ultrasonic examination may be difficult in certain people. These patients may have a Tran esophageal echocardiogram (TEE), which uses a special probe passed into the esophagus so that an ultrasonic picture of the heart can be obtained without interference from the lungs or ribcage.

Cardiac Catheterization

Coronary Angiography

This is a procedure to examine blood flow to the heart and test how well the heart is pumping. A thin plastic tube (catheter) is inserted into an artery in the arm or leg. From there, it is advanced into the chambers of the heart or into the coronary arteries. The Interventional Cardiologist who does this procedure is able to get information about the pumping ability of the heart muscle and also the freeness of the blood flow in the Coronaries. The block, if any, in the Coronary arteries is evaluated through this diagnostic procedure.

Coronary Angioplasty

Coronary angioplasty is a medical procedure in which a balloon is used to open a blockage in the coronary artery, which is narrowed by atherosclerosis. The opening of the blocks enables the blood to flow to the heart. Atherosclerosis is a condition in which a material called plaque builds up on the inner walls of the arteries. This can happen in any artery, including coronary arteries, and such a condition is termed coronary artery disease (CAD).

Angioplasty is aimed at:

  • Improving Symptoms Of CAD, Such A Angina And Shortness Of Breath.
  • Reduce Damage To The Heart Muscle From A Heart Attack.
  • Reduce The Risk Of Death In Some Patients
