Hyderabad: Doctors at Amor Hospitals, Kukatpally said on Friday they successfully performed complex surgery to save the life of a 62-year-old who suffered from triple vessel disease, a heart disease in which all three blood vessels supplying blood to the heart are blocked. The patient’s condition was further complicated after testing positive for Covid-19.

Doctors, while stabilizing the patient’s heart condition, struggled to cure the symptoms of Covid-19, before moving in to operate. Amor Hospitals Cardiologist Dr Imran Ul Haq said, “We used intravascular lithotripsy (IVL) approach, a new technique based on an established treatment strategy for kidney stones. Through IVL, multiple lithotripsy transmitters mounted on a traditional catheter platform deliver localized pulsating sonic pressure waves to circumferentially alter vascular calcium. Post where we successfully inserted a stent and the patient’s condition improved within a few days.
