BR Life Kalinga Hospital hosts Cardiocon 2019

Bhubaneswar: BR Life Hospital Kalinga today hosted Cardiocon 2019 to create awareness of the rise in heart disease in India and the treatment options available to patients. More than 150 doctors from all over Orissa attended this conclave.
The conclave included sessions led by the leading cardiac, cardio-cardiac and cardiovascular specialists of BR Life Kalinga Hospital, namely Dr Karunakara Padhy, Director of CTVS, Dr. Susant Kumar Patra, CTVS Consultant, dr. Shaila, Sr. Consultant Emergency Cardiologist, Dr. Sudipta Acharya, s. Consultant Emergency Cardiologist and Dr. Binay Bhusan Binakar, s.

According to Odish’s economic research, 25,000 people are reportedly dying each year for cardiovascular problems in Odisha. In addition, the state is also witnessing a simultaneous increase in the incidence of heart failure, mainly among relatively younger men and women, who were previously considered to be outside the risk of this condition. This scenario can be changed by increasing awareness of the treatment options available in Odishi. Technological advances in biomedical engineering have made it easier to resolve almost all types of coronary blockages with catheter-based interventions that are more attractive to the patient. Although this can be valid for short segment lesions, for long-term results of long lesions, especially near the left main bifurcation, arterial bypass can be a solution.
With biomedical technology, cardiac surgery has made significant progress, especially in the case of surgeries that were previously performed with large cuts and cardiac arrest. These critical operations have now been replaced in many centers around the world by procedures such as BEATING HEART SURGERY (acting even as the heart continues to beat) without the aid of Heart Lung or its unintended complications. Transplants of the veins (collected from the legs) were replaced by arterial transplants (from the chest or forearm). Most importantly, the average length of stay in the hospital has been reduced to less than a week, with less chances for re-intervention for at least one decade.
Speaking at the conclave, Dr Karunakara Padhy, director of CTVS at BR Life Kalinga Hospital, said: “The Orissa medical scenario has been changing for more than ten years. With the rise of medical technology and the advancement of procedures, the state is now equipped to deal with all kinds of critical cases, especially in the case of heart problems such as Congenital heart disease, heart surgery, CABG, Minimal Invasive Cardiac Surgery. , Cardiac Transplant and save people’s lives without moving to other cities for better treatment options and clinical help. With only eight leading hospitals, we conduct 200 cardiac procedures a month, while Odisha has the potential to carry out more than 800 cardiac procedures a month and give new life to patients. “
The government has introduced various health schemes for people to help and improve their health conditions. These schemes aim to be a blessing for patients suffering from life-threatening illnesses, providing them with financial assistance. Hospital authorities are available to provide assistance for more details and ways of accessing this scheme.
