Center For Cardiothoracic & Cardiovascular Disorders

Center for Cardiothoracic & Cardiovascular Disorders at Padiyath Medicity - Hopital Du Cinquantenaire strives to provide patients with expert treatment and care. We believe in offering the patients with an ethical and open environment to recover. Our team of expert Cardiologists, Cardiac Surgeons and Vascular Surgeons believe in carrying out an in-depth investigation of patient condition taking into account patient's complete medical history, therefore strategizing a tailored treatment and recovery plan for each.

Our Center forms one of the largest groups of Cardiology and Cardio-Thoracic Surgery in Africa. . The Center attracts thousands of patients, including international patients and performs virtually every type of heart surgery. Our expertise in cardiac care helps us in caring for patients with heart disease by providing complete all-round care.

24 Hr. Emergency Response Team & Heart Station

Mobile coronary care units, fully equipped with advanced life support systems, communication facilities with the Heart Command Centre located in the Coronary Care Unit, and manned by well trained and experienced paramedical and medical personnel, provide rapid access to handle emergencies.

Advanced Cardiovascular Non-invasive Imaging

Accurate diagnosis of any disease involves good delineation of the structure and function of the area involved.

64 Slice Cardiac CT Scanner

Using the 64 slice rapid acquisition of X-ray images of a beating heart, it has recently been possible to distinctly image the heart and its small blood vessels measuring up to 1 millimetre. Obstruction to the blood supply of the heart muscle, which results in chest pain and heart attacks, can be qualitatively assessed by the 64 slice CT scanning as an outpatient non-invasive procedure with zero patient discomfort and risk.

Echocardiographic Haemodynamic Laboratory

The heart has a complex multi-dimensional shape. A proper assessment of the function of its parts requires a multi-dimensional depiction of its structural and functional intricacies. This complex physical relationship can be studied using reflections from high frequency sound waves, called ultrasound, which can give information on blood and myocardial motion.

Vivid-7 Dimension

The Centre for Cardiothoracic & Cardiovascular Disorders has made a quantum leap in its capabilities to become the first in Africa to acquire Vivid-7 Dimension, adding it to the other five existing echocardiographic systems. Vivid-7 Dimension has the most advanced Tissue Doppler facilities (tissue velocity and strain imaging).

Coronary Care Unit

The unit is staffed by a specially trained physician and nurses capable of serving the sickest of patients. This 24 bed facility cares for the sickest of patients who may require ventilator care, invasive and non-invasive advanced life support such as emergency pacing (transvenous and trans-thoracic), intraaortic balloon pump support of failing heart, emergency lab, radiological services, bedside echocardiography, specialised nutritional and patient support services.


The Department of Cardio Thoracic & Vascular Surgery (CTVS) has

The Department of Adult & Paediatric Cardiac Surgery at Padiyath Medicity - Hopital Du Cinquantenaire is fully equipped with state of the art facilities to deal with every related medical condition. The Department also has advanced post operative surgical ICU and step down ward along with two operation theatres with state of the art equipment.Our Cardiac Surgery department not only involve themselves in performing Cardio Thoracic and Vascular Surgeries, but also render regular technical and specialty support to the Trauma unit, Cardiology unit, Transplant unit and Pulmonology unit within the hospital.

CABG (Coronary Artery Bypass Graft)

A form of heart surgery that redirects blood around clogged arteries to increase blood flow and oxygen to the heart. The cardiac surgeons at Padiyath Medicity - Hopital Du Cinquantenaire have great expertise and experience with CABG surgeries. We do total arterial revascularization of the heart off-pump with varying configurations of arterial conduits such as left/right internal mammary arteries, radial arteries, and gastro-epiploic arteries individualized to patient's requirements.

Paediatric Cardiac Surgery

Our Center has 14-bed well-equipped Pediatric ICU with Warner and phototherapy. Diagnosis by Cardiac Catheterisation and interventional treatment including closure of PDA, ASD and pulmonary and aortic valvuloplasty in children from 0 hours-12 years.


Congenital Heart Surgeries

Minimally Invasive Coronary Artery Surgery

Conventional CABG or coronary Bypass surgery is performed by splitting or cutting through the breastbone or sternum. MICAS or MICS CABG is a safe and complete operation that has revolutionised the way coronary surgery is performed. MICS CABG or MICAS stands for Minimally Invasive Coronary Artery Surgery.


Extensive and challenging thoracic procedures (lung, esophagus, etc.) are undertaken by our thoracic surgeons with the best results. These include operations for removal of malignancies from the lung and esophagus. They perform minimally invasive procedures on the lung and esophagus as well as VATS (Video-assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery)


Specialists in Vascular surgery at Padiyath Medicity - Hopital Du Cinquantenaire offer state-of-the-art diagnosis and comprehensive treatment of diseases of Aorta and the arteries. Our Center has superb facilities; vascular surgeons perform procedures that produce excellent outcomes and rapid recovery for life threatening vascular afflictions.

Heart Transplants

Center for Cardiothoracic & Cardiovascular Disorders at Padiyath Medicity - Hopital Du Cinquantenaire run the Heart Transplant Program. The Center is one of the Pioneering units for the Procedure in the continent of AFRICA.

Heart Valve Surgery

Specialized surgery which is performed for the treatment of abnormalities like Mitral Regurgitation (MR) (a valvular heart disease which results in the abnormal leaking of blood through the mitral valve, from the left ventricle into the left atrium of the heart), or Aortic Stenosis (a condition where the aortic valve becomes narrower than normal, impeding the flow of blood) & Valve Replacement & Repair are routinely performed.

Interventional Cardiology

The Interventional Cardiology Centres are manned by senior Cardiologists trained in India and abroad. Coronary stenting is routine and performed by most of the interventional cardiologists and Patients with high risk and multi vessel involvement are also treated.

Primary angioplasty, an approach of opening blocked coronary artery during acute myocardial infarction, in place of thrombolysis is practised in suitable cases. Sub clavian, iliac, femoral and carotid artery balloon angioplasty and stenting are being performed. Vascular dissection and aneurysm repair are also conducted with covered stents.

Other Services

The number of cardiac patients in Africa is growing day by day. At Padiyath Medicity - Hopital Du Cinquantenaire, our team of cardiologists and cardiac surgeons provide all cardiac services to patients in an effort to combat and survive the killer disease. . We follow the latest international AHA/ACC guidelines in performing all cardiac procedures.
