Technology

Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) is a technique that temporarily takes over the function of the heart and lungs during surgery,
maintaining the circulation of blood and the oxygen content of the patient’s body

CLINICAL APPLICATIONS
  • The heart lung machine typically used during-
  • Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG)
  • Surgical excision of renal cell carcinoma
  • Percutaneous trans luminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) & stent procedures
  • Open-heart surgery for valve repair or repair of cardiac anomalies
  • Aortic aneurysm repairs, along with treatment of other cardiac- related diseases
EQUIPMENT FEATURES
  • Latest state of the art, 3 generation heart and lung machine with best patient safety features
  • Better integration with the perfusion circuit
  • More configuration options to accommodate a greater assortment of procedures
  • Speed adjustments are performed via an Incremental Encoder (a maintenance-free technology that increases longevity and reliability )
  • Clearly structured, intuitive and descriptive menu system eliminates guesswork, and one-touch accessibility improves user convenience

ECMO is the technology in which the patient’s lungs or heart or both are artificially supported temporarily in a condition of severe respiratory failure till the organ recover to function optimally
CLINICAL APPLICATIONS
  • Refractory cardiogenic shock
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Fulminant myocarditis
  • Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS)
  • Severe pneumonia with respiratory failure
  • Failure to wean from cardiopulmonary bypass
  • Bridge to Heart transplantation or placement of a ventricular assist device

  • Core Mobile provides clarity of approach with excellent results in a single suite of imaging & physiology analysis

TEE uses sound waves to make pictures of heart’s muscle and chambers, valves and outer lining (pericardium),
as well as the blood vessels that connect to your heart.

CLINICAL APPLICATIONS
  • Helps in the diagnosis of valve disease, myocardial disease, pericardial disease, infective endocarditis, cardiac masses and congenital heart disease
  • Checks heart valves and heart function post surgery
  • Important in checking surgical repair after surgery
  • Useful in checking de-airing after open heart surgery
  • Check for abnormalities in the top left chamber of your heart (left atrium)
EQUIPMENT FEATURES
  • iScan helps in automatic image optimization
  • Insight imaging architecture gives images with optimum resolution
  • xMATRIX is the most leading-edge, versatile ultrasound transducer technology
  • Easily compare past and current studies without the use of an external reading station and even review these multimodal images while carrying out live imaging
  • The real-time integration of Echo Navigator between fluoroscopy and Live 3DTransesophageal Echocardiography (TEE) provides automatic registration and tracking
  • It has Pure Wave Crystal technology, which is the biggest breakthrough in 40 years which helps to image technically difficult patients

VATS is minimally invasive thoracic surgery that does not use a formal thoracotomy incision. VATS provides adequate visualization despite limited access to the thorax, allowing the procedure to be performed in a state of debilitation and for patients who havemarginal pulmonary reserve.The advantages are less pain, better recovery and also there have been reports of better immunological response after surgery.

The scar are very small and hence not seen once they heal and this is also cosmetically better.
CLINICAL APPLICATIONS
  • With VATS, we can do major procedures including
  • Lung resections
  • Cervical sympathectomy for hyperhidrosis
  • Mediastinal node dissections and excision of the intrathoracic tumours
EQUIPMENT FEATURES
  • Provides realistic 3D images of the tissue being operated on
  • Unique deflectable tip, which offers greater visibility of less accessible regions
  • Ideal for suturing, accurately identifying tissue planes and other precision surgical tasks
  • Articulating design enables to obtain the critical view of anatomical structures in HD 3-D
  • Can change angle at the tip of the scope from 0 degree to 120 degree
  • Fine instruments available for dissection. Suturing and even for applying staplers

Virinchi Hospitals is a new hospital in the the heart of the city. It actually lies exactly between the older and newer versions of Hyderabad. Interestingly, there is direct approach from the International Airport especially if one passes Shamshabad and takes the PVNR highway. The hospital is just a km from the exit of the highway. The hospital was built at this location because of easy access for patients living in the old city as well as for those living in the newer areas. The access to the PVNR highway makes it easy for patients to reach from the airport directly. There are numerous hotels and lodges near around the hospital so that it is not difficult for the relatives of patients who are from out of station to find place to stay. There is no dearth of any eating places near the hospital and a wide variety of cuisines are available.

The hospital has the state of the art laboratory services and operation theatre and ICU setup. There are eight  ICUs depending on the nature of specialised care required. The operation theatres have the latest equipment and minimal access setup to enable the surgeons to fulfil their surgical potentials. Despite all this, the hospital is not costly compared to the hospitals in the city.

Cardiovascular Care

A comprehensive approach is taken for cardiovascular care of the patients. The treatment plan is carefully made so that the best possible results can be achieved. There is excellent coordination between the cardiologists and the surgeons and what is best for the patient is what is offered to him/her. Nothing is done in an arbitrary fashion nor for the sake of business. Patient comes first.

There is a lot of stress on preventive cardiology in the advise given at discharge and also in the arrangement of screening and advisory heart camps that are regularly conducted by the hospital at various places.

Pulmonology and Thoracic Surgery

There are many patients with thoracic diseases and the team of Pulmonologists and Thoracic surgeons give the most comprehensive care. This is one of the few centres in the city where you would find the level of expertise and coordination in this field and hence this is going to be one of the centre of excellence in the field in the state.

Supportive services

Early recovery of the patient will occur because of good postoperative care. The ICU system at Virinchi Hospitals is based on active surveillance and quick reactions hence leading to very few life threatening problems. There strict protocols and also there is continuous education and training process that takes place. This moulds the staff into the “best of the best” in intensive care.

Good physiotherapy leads to early recovery and less pain. This is started in the immediate postoperative period and carries on till the discharge of the patient from the hospital. The patients are taught to continue some of the exercises when they go home and hence they come back for review in a healthier state.

Correct nutrition is good nutrition. We have a dedicated team of nutritionists who advise the patient on their diet and also supervise the dietary needs in the early postoperative period. In the postoperative period, the patients cannot eat very well hence the diet has to be different. After discharge, the diet stresses on early recovery as well as avoiding side effects and also is an important tool in secondary prevention of the disease process.

Blood bank and laboratory services

The Virinchi Hospitals has the state of the art blood bank and is able to supply blood and blood components required for this specialty. The laboratory services has the latest automated laboratory analysers and very good pathologists and biochemists. The Radiology department has high end CT scan, MRI scan and ultrasounds and gives round the clock services in performing scans such as angiograms, 3D reconstruction images , cardiac MR and others. This is essential for getting an early diagnosis so that we can give early treatment.

Guest relationship

There is a continuous method of interaction between the patient/ relatives and the administration. Executives will be helpful in solving the problems of the patients including seemingly small practical difficulties. This makes life less harder and eases out many small problems that would be left unattended in many other medical institutions.

Services offered

  1. Coronary artery surgery
  2. Minimal access cardiac surgery
  3. Valve repair and replacement
  4. Video assisted thoracic surgery
  5. Arrhythmia surgery
  6. Vascular and endovascular surgery including Aneurysm surgery/EVAR
  7. Heart and lung transplant
  8. Pediatric cardiac surgery

Coronary artery surgery

Myocardial revascularisation as well as treatment of complications of heart attacks is the main work that is done. Minimal access cardiac surgery is performed when indicated and if the patient is stable. Patients will have quicker recovery and less pain or bleeding. We use arterial grafts usually to give long term results. Vein grafts are used only as a secondary choice.

Valve repair and replacement

Minimal access surgery is an excellent way to repair or replace the diseased heart valves. This is an usual feature with our unit. In case the patient has atrial fibrillation, we offer surgical ablation of atrial fibrillation to enable better outcomes and reduction in postoperative medications

VATS

Standard thoracic surgery is being replaced by video assisted thoracic surgery here. The pulmonologists are very efficient in interventional pulmonology and if the patient needs thoracic surgical intervention, then he/she can be subjected to VATS. This gives a fast recovery and even has immunological advantages. It has replaced the long incisions of the previous schools of surgery.

Heart and Lung transplant

The hospital has dedicated ICU for transplant surgery and is enrolled with the government for the services. The transplant team comprises of surgeon, anaesthesiologists, cardiologists and pulmonologists.

Pediatric cardiac surgery

The department has dedicated ICU for pediatric cardiac surgery and all the equipment that is required. In pediatric cardiac surgery, the outcomes depend much in good postoperative care. This is the reason for employing trained and efficient staff for the service.
