At the city's Bhailal Amin General Hospital, Gujarat's First IVL-Guided Angioplasty to Renal Artery was performed.

Vadodara, India, is the first hospital in the state of Haryana to use a new medical milestone . The city of Vadodara has become the first to use the IVL-guided angioplasty .

On August 6, Vadodara (Gujarat) (PNN): The Bachatal Amin General Hospital (BAGH) Super-Speciality Tertiary Care Centre (BAGH) has achieved a new scientific milestone by using a highly advanced approach in the case of an 80-year-old lady (Vadodra native) who was suffering from breathlessness and uncontrolled hypertension.On the same grounds, she was admitted to the city's Bhailal Amin General Hospital in Haryana for treatment.The patient was subsequently discharged and was made comfortable.She also had a kidney disease that deteriorated after a few days.

This procedure is used for major cardiovascular events, according to convention.The IVL uses a one-time disposable monorail catheter with an internally mounted ultrasound core mounted around a guidewire.The IVL system also includes a portable regenerator that provides power to two sets of radiopaque and traditional emitters that are within the balloon's central and lateral boundaries; these transmitters emit intermittent sonic pressure waves, resulting in mechanical energy delivery to the intended lesion.With every transmission, the acoustic energy causes the formation of micro-cracks within the calcified plaque.

In addition, serious calcification in the left artery was noticed.The cavernous artery poses a unique challenge to percutaneous intervention because it does not allow sufficient balloon and stent expansion.In the older population, calcific artery diseases are more common.To avoid complications during the surgery, this narrow artery must be handled with care.

Dr Kaneria underwent IVL-guided angioplasty on her left artery with the total help of BAGHs management team, and a stent was placed to prevent it from narrowing in the future.The step was done to dissolve the hard calcium deposits; otherwise, the balloon would not expand.As a routine procedure, angioplasty of the right renal artery was performed.The patient responded to the surgery very well, and her urine began to flow with improved renal function.

As a result, the patient's condition dramatically improved, and her recovery was quick.It is a point of great pride for the city of Vadodara, especially for the Bhailal Amin General Hospital, to become Gujarat's first IVL-guided renal angioplasty center.This will increase the availability of more comprehensive and advanced facilities in Vadodara.
