Cardiac resynchronization therapy is a procedure in which a device is implanted in your chest to help your heart's chambers squeeze (contract) more efficiently and in a more organized way.
A biventricular pacemaker (also known as a cardiac resynchronization device) delivers electrical signals to both lower chambers of the heart after cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). The signals cause your ventricles to contract in a more coordinated manner, resulting in better blood pumping out of your heart.
CRT therapy means you will have the pacemaker placed under your skin by minor surgery. Wires from the device are connected to the ventricles on both sides of your heart. The CRT device sends electrical signals to the ventricles to make them pump together the way they should. This type of electrical stimulation is called biventricular pacing.
If your heart rhythm is dangerously unpredictable, the device may also include an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD), which can give an electrical shock to reset your heartbeat.
Cardiac resynchronization therapy devices include:
Cardiac resynchronization therapy is a treatment for heart failure in patients who have uncoordinated ventricular contractions.
Your heart muscle is weakened with heart failure, and it may not be able to pump enough blood to support your body. This can be exacerbated if the chambers of your heart aren't in rhythm with one another.
Cardiac resynchronization treatment can help you manage your heart failure symptoms and reduce your risk of consequences, including death.
Your doctor will make a small cut (incision) and create a pocket under the skin. This pocket will hold the wires and computer battery pack for the CRT.
Your doctor will put IV lines in the large vein that feeds your heart. He or she will put CRT wires (leads) into the vein and feed them into your heart. Special X-rays will be taken to make sure the leads are in the right place on both sides of your heart.
If the leads are in the right place and working as they should, they will be attached to the CRT pacemaker. Your doctor will put the pacemaker through the incision and under your skin. The incision is then closed with sutures or staples and apply a dressing.
After cardiac resynchronization therapy, you'll spend 1-2 nights in the hospital. Before you leave the hospital, your doctor will test your device to ensure that it is properly programmed. After a few days, most people can resume their normal activities.
It is critical that you follow your doctor's instructions to the letter. For the first six weeks, you may need to minimize activities including lifting, straining, and stretching. Inquire with your doctor about when you can resume specific activities.
Make sure your doctor checks the device's functionality on a regular basis. At least once every six months, this should be done.
In around 7 out of 10 cases of heart failure, cardiac resynchronization therapy is effective. CRT does not work for everyone with heart failure. If you have advanced heart failure, for example, you are less likely to react to CRT. If you have mild to moderate heart failure, CRT may help you live longer, improve your heart function, and enhance your quality of life.

My dad was advised cardiac bypass surgery in CA, USA, but because of being uninsured, such high costs of cardiac surgery in the US, we were really not able to afford it. IndiCure has actually helped in saving my dad's life and we are really grateful for the same.
I am falling short of words, to express my gratitude to the surgeon who was very helpful and courteous.
Will recommend IndiCure to everyone!
Procedure : CABG surgery
My son 4 years old was born with a heart defect which the doctors said needed a highly specialized surgery. Our cardiologist highly spoke of Indian surgeons and suggested us to go to India and in hindsight now I realize how right he was!
My son was successfully operated and I must thank Indicure for the excellent arrangements they made.
Procedure : ToF surgery
I would like to thank IndiCure for all they have done for my mother and me. Without IndiCure our stay would have been very difficult. They made our journey to India very pleasant and were always very attentive to our needs.
I would recommend IndiCure to anybody wanting to come to India for medical treatment.

CRTs are divided into two categories. One is a unique type of pacemaker. A cardiac resynchronization therapy pacemaker (CRT-P) or "biventricular pacemaker" is what it's called. The other is the similar device, but with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator integrated in (ICD). A cardiac resynchronization treatment defibrillator is the name for this type (CRT-D).
According to these analyses, the median survival after device implantation is 4.62 years for CRT-P and 5.15 years for CRT-D.

You will stay at the hospital for 2-3 days and about a week to ten days in India after the procedure. So, you would need around 12-14 days for your CRT implantation in India.
Yes, the patient can get the MRI done with the implant.
The patient should stay away from certain hobbies like rough sports. Most people can resume their normal daily activities following a full recovery from the surgery.
Many people can participate in their favorite hobbies thanks to an implantable cardiac device. However, some activities, such as rough-contact sports, should be avoided.
Yes. The majority of household appliances are safe to use if they are well-maintained and in good functioning order. Microwave ovens, large appliances, electric blankets, and heating pads are all examples.
Magnetic therapy items, stereo speakers, and hand-held massagers, for example, can have a temporary effect on the operation of the implanted heart device. As a result, things containing magnets should be kept at least six inches away from the heart device.
Patients who use a CRT device can travel with confidence and safety. A Medical Device ID card is given to the patient. This card serves as a reminder to medical and security officials that you have a CRT device implanted.
NOTE: It's critical to keep the card with you when travelling because the gadget contains metal pieces that could set off metal detectors at airport security.
Airport security wands may potentially cause the device to malfunction temporarily. Instead than employing a handheld wand, security staff should do a hand search. If a wand is being used, you can request that the security professionals search the device swiftly and without holding the wand over it. Because it may have an impact on the device.

I recently traveled to Mumbai for a lower body lift and breast lift. As an American nurse living in Saudi Arabia I was apprehensive at first and did months of research. I chose IndiCure because of Dr. Jagannathan. I traveled alone and spent almost 3 weeks there undergoing 2 separate procedures. I was pleasantly surprised. The surgeries both went flawless. All of the hospital staff was amazing. Read Michelle Williams's Review About IndiCure Here
