Electrophysiology Lab (EP Lab)

Electrophysiology studies (EPS) helps in testing electrical activity of the heart. EPS results are important for the cardiologists to decide whether the patient needs implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), a pacemaker or cardiac ablation or surgery.

TX Hospitals cardiology centre has well-equipped electrophysiology lab with sophisticated equipment to map and monitor electrical systems of the heart and to treat arrhythmias (heart rhythm problems). Cutting-edge facilities and electrophysiological studies (EPS) allow our cardiologists to diagnose and treat a broad range of heart arrhythmias.

Cardiac mapping helps in real-time mapping of electrical impulses throughout the heart muscles. Electrophysiology studies help in detecting the origin of abnormal heart rhythms or heartbeats by cardiac mapping.

MRI, CT, PETCT

MRI scan is the most precise and accurate method of detecting problems throughout the body – and, it is a mostly recommended test when other testing methods do not provide substantial information to confirm diagnosis.

3 Tesla MRI provides more detailed images of the internal organs such as brain, spine, skeletal system, reproductive system and soft tissues.

Doctors recommend MRIs for detailed images of internal organs, soft tissues, ligaments and skeletal muscles. MRI is usually recommended to detect problems associated with your heart, brain, spine, spinal cord, liver, kidneys, torn ligaments, soft issues and herniated discs. MRI is an absolutely safe scan.

CT – A CT scan works on the principle of utilizing X-rays taken at different angles and then forming a 3D image of the part of the body or organ being examined. TX hospitals has high-end CT scanner to perform angiography of any region of the body including heart, lung, neck, head, lower limb, upper limb, renal arteries and aorta. The most common CT scan procedures involves bones, pelvis, chest abdomen, sinuses, neck and head.

PET CT – Positron emission tomography with computed tomography. This scan provides high-resolution, top-quality image and superior quality scan at lower radiation dose. This scan is helpful for an early detection of cancer with high sensitivity. It is immensely helpful for the detection and spread of cancer in the body. It is also helpful for detecting certain heart and brain disorders.

State-of-the-art Operation theatres

TX Hospitals has ultra-modern, state-of-the-art operation theatres with all robust equipment and facilities which are on par with international standards. While designing the operation theatres, all SOPs, standard practices of design and safe ambience quality parameters have been implemented to ensure safe handling of patients and error free procedures. The ambience has been created based on stringent quality parameters to ensure 99.9% bacteria free environment. Ceiling mounted, retractable, removable and detachable panels – which can be sterilized with ease are used. Laminar air flow with HEPA filters prevent dust, particles and bacteria from entering the operation theatres. Ambient LED lighting system provide cool lighting for surgeon for longer procedures.

Our operation theatres are a boon for patients as they ensure faster set up times for procedures and swift change over between cases.

Neuro-imaging – interventional radiology procedures

Neurointerventional neurology department at TX Hospitals has experienced and expert interventional neurologists, neurointerventional radiologists and endovascular medicine specialists. They provide highest level care to diagnose and treat a broad range of central and peripheral nervous system and cerebrovascular disorders (brain, spinal cord, spine, neck and head). They use minimally invasive neurointerventional procedures.

We provide treatment for brain stroke, Trans-ischemic attack (TIA), intracranial atherosclerotic disease, stenosis, compression fractures, carotid artery disease, arteriovenous malformations of the brain and spinal cord, brain aneurysm, temporary and permanent vessel occlusion, Dural arteriovenous fistula (AVF) and many more such conditions.

Minimally Invasive Interventional Procedures

  • Neuro-imaging – interventional radiology procedures
  • Digital Subtraction Angiography (DSA)
  • Digital subtraction cerebral angiography
  • Digital subtraction spinal angiography
  • Carotid artery angioplasty and stenting
  • Cerebral angiography
  • Diagnostic spinal angiography
  • Endovascular coiling
  • Embolization of intracranial and head & neck aneurysms
  • Embolization of vascular malformations (head, neck, brain and spine)

Video EEG

Video EEG monitoring or EEG telemetry: This is the most important test to know whether seizures are pseudo seizures or real epileptic seizures – and also to determine the exact location of origin of seizures in the brain. Video EEG is also helpful in identifying the types of seizures. When epilepsy surgery is indicated, this testing is important to precisely identify the location of the origin of seizures in the brain. The test is also known as EEG monitoring.

Video EEG is the gold standard diagnosis criterion for differentiating actual seizures from that of pseudo seizures.

During a typical video EEG procedure, clinicians monitor the electrical activity of patient’s brain on a video monitor while EEG records electrical activity. The recording continues throughout the entire duration of their stay in the lab. This helps neurologists to compare patient’s brain activity and physical activities simultaneously.

Cath Lab for Neuro-interventions

Neurointerventional laboratory is in close proximity with CT, MRI imaging and emergency room to minimize transit time during acute stroke and other emergency conditions. The lab offers Biplane angiography with DSA – high resolution digital subtraction imaging (biplane imaging system) – capable of providing 3D images in real time. The lab is well maintained by interventional technologists, radiation physicist and service engineers.

State-of-the-art neurointerventions Cath Lab is one of its kind to handle complex neuro vascular procedures. Senior most interventional neurologists provide round the clock care.

The Cath Lab is well-equipped with world’s best robust software and hardware accessories and ready to use materials for complex neuro-interventional procedures. Neurointerventional department at TX Hospital is well supported by Advanced neuroradiology support, vibrant stroke unit Neurointensive and neurorehabilitation teams.

Neuro-navigation systems

Neuro-navigation or frameless systems helps in guiding neuro surgeons to the surgical targets in the brain without requiring any external frames. Frameless stereotactic neuro surgery is becoming a standard in neurosurgery at TX Hospitals. It offers neurosurgeons a real-time intra-operative guidance during spinal and brain surgery. With this technology, the safety and accuracy of neurosurgery has increased manifolds. This is especially useful in precise and accurate resection of tumours in the important areas of the brain.

State-of-the-art neuro-navigation systems at TX Hospitals are well-equipped with a wide range of accessories – which are helpful for frame-based stereotactic surgeries. The accuracy, precision and localization abilities of this system can limit craniotomy or the size of skull opening during the resection of intra-axial brain tumours.

Expert surgeons take advantage of advancements in image-guided surgery and implement those features in navigational process to manage a wide range of procedures including neuro surgical, orthopaedic, otolaryngological, craniofacial and other surgeries.

Neuro-endoscope

Neuro-endoscope allow neurosurgeons to perform minimally invasive microsurgery with the help of small, thin and sleek instruments with a camera for better access and navigation during surgery. This type of technology helps neurosurgeon to perform surgery and to take samples for biopsy. This technique is useful in cerebrovascular, intraventricular, trans nasal and paediatric conditions.

Minimally invasive transcranial endoscope-assisted micro neurosurgery and Cerebrovascular endoscopic assisted microscopic surgery give excellent positive outcomes for patients.

Neuroendoscopic surgery offers many benefits – such as shorter hospital stay, less blood loss, less painful, faster recovery and minimal scarring.
