Kolkata, Feb 16 : Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals has introduced an Advanced 3 Dimensional Mapping System for the first time in Eastern India to manage complex cardiac arrhythmia.

Interventional Cardiologists, Dr Rabin Chakraborty and Dr Aftab Khan, have organized a special workshop on Feb 17 for the same.

This workshop will be led by Delhi-based senior Interventional Cardiologist Dr Mohan Nair and will focus on the treatment of complex cases of cardiac arrhythmia.

Cardiac arrhythmia is a condition in which heart's normal rhythm is disrupted.

Heartbeat may be too fast or too slow or may be regular or irregular. Some types of arrhythmias are life-threatening resulting in cardiac arrest.

Speaking on the occasion, Nair said, "Known as one of the best innovation in medicine, 3D mapping in cardiology has the potential to provide patients with the best clinical outcomes. This unique facility is available in very few centres across India. Apollo Gleneagles Hospital in Kolkata has the latest model of 3D heart mapping called Ensite Velocity NAVX SYSTEM which can prevent life threatening situations that may arise out of cardiac arrhythmia".

Dr Rupali Basu, CEO, Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals, Kolkata said, "This workshop will be one of the first of its kind heart arrhythmia management in Eastern India. A lot of advanced equipment like NAVX Patch, Arrays, thermocool catheters, special ablation and state of the art navigation catheters will be showcased in this workshop. Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals has pioneered 3D mapping in cardiology in this part of the country."

"With focus on product training, clinical training and clinical education for integrated teams, both interventional cardiologists as well as Cathlab technicians and staff are equipped to achieve clinical proficiency in the safest, most efficient manner possible," Basu said.
