Department of Cardiology
St. Stephen's Hospital has a full-fledged Cardiothoracic Unit which undertakes Cardiac, Vascular and Thoracic Surgeries both in adult and children. Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery, including arterial revascularisation using internal mammary artery, is required in triple vessel disease, critical left main lesions and other coronary artery blockages not amenable to balloon angioplasty. Cardio pulmonary Bypass using Sarns heart lung machine, use of bubble and membrane oxygenerators, attention to myocardial protection using Blood Cardioplegia and disposable delivery systems, have enabled better results in Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery are available in the Cardiac Operating Room. This is the first centre in North India to start using Chitra Prosthetic Heart Valves.
A well equipped 4 bedded post operative Cardiothoracic Surgery Intensive Care Unit has the latest Volume Ventilators, Multichannel Monitors, Pulse Oxymeters, Infusion Syringes and pumps. Support for post operative low cardiac output state is possible with a sophisticated Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump (IABP) from 'Datascope'. The IABP is also useful for patients needing urgent surgery after angioplasty. We also have a 4 bedded step-down ICU.
Surgery for rheumatic heart disease patients is still an urgent need in this country and many of these patients require valve repairs or valve replacements. Newer heart valve prostheses are available for use in patients requiring valve replacements. Some of these patients require cardiac surgery either open or closed. Congenital heart defects corrections such as Arterial Septal Defect, Ventricular Septal Defect, Tetralogy of Fallots Shunt Surgery, Closure of persistent Ductus Arteriosus, Coarctation Surgery are all routinely undertaken. Excision or grafting of Aortic aneurysms and bypasses for Aortoiliac obstruction are routinely done with newer prosthetic grafts.
Over 500 cardiac operations have already been done successfully. This includes coronary artery bypass grafts, valve repairs and replacements, difficult congenital heart repairs, aneurysm resections with excellent results.
The charges are made as a package deal for coronary artery bypass graft and  other open heart operations. These are some of the most economical rates in the country.
