At Heritage Hospital, we offer specialized temporary pacemaker implantation services in Varanasi. Our highly skilled cardiologists use advanced techniques to ensure effective and hassle-free treatment for cardiac rhythm issues.

 

Temporary cardiac pacing, also known as Temporary Pacemaker Implantation (TPI), is a critical medical procedure used to restore the heart's natural rhythm when it becomes irregular. This procedure involves the insertion of wires through the chest, groin, or neck, which are connected directly to the heart and then linked to an external pacing device.

 

When Temporary Pacemaker Implantation Is Necessary?

 

Temporary pacemaker implantation becomes essential in situations where the heart's natural rhythm is disrupted, leading to inadequate blood pumping. Some common scenarios where temporary pacemaker implantation is required include:

 

  • Following a Heart Attack (Acute Myocardial Infarction): After a heart attack, the heart's electrical system can be damaged, leading to irregular rhythms. Temporary pacemaker implantation can help regulate the heartbeat during the recovery phase.


  • After Heart Surgery: Certain heart surgeries, such as those involving the atria or ventricles, may temporarily disrupt the heart's normal rhythm. Temporary pacemakers can be used to stabilize the heartbeat during the post-operative period.


  • Before Permanent Pacemaker Surgery: In some cases, patients may require permanent pacemakers, but temporary pacemakers are used initially to stabilize their heart rhythms until the permanent device can be implanted.


  • To Increase Heart Rate or Surpass Undesirable Rhythms: Temporary pacemakers can be implanted to increase the heart rate or surpass abnormal rhythms that are harmful to the patient’s health.

 

Temporary Pacemaker Implantation Procedure

 

Temporary pacemaker implantation in Varanasi can be performed in two main ways at Heritage Hospitals:

 

Catheter-Based Approach

 

In this method, our experienced cardiologists use a catheter with an electrode at the tip. This catheter is inserted into a large blood vessel, typically through the neck or groin, until it reaches the heart. The doctor takes the help of Fluoroscopy (an X-ray imaging technique) for the catheter’s placement.

 

During Heart Surgery

 

In certain cases, particularly during open-heart surgery, our cardiologist attaches insulated wires to the outer surface of the heart. These wires are then brought out to the front. Later on, they are connected to a battery-powered pacing box set to maintain the heart rate within a desired range, typically 60-100 beats per minute.

  • Electrocardiography (ECG): To monitor the electrical activity of the heart continuously during the procedure.


  • Ultrasound (Echocardiography): To assess the structure and function of the heart before and during the procedure.


  • Electrophysiological Studies (EPS): To understand the electrical activity of the heart to identify the source of the rhythm disturbance.


  • 3D Mapping Systems: To provide a detailed three-dimensional visualization of the heart’s anatomy and electrical pathways.

Managing Risks and Complications

 

While temporary pacemaker implantation is generally a safe procedure, there are some essential risks and potential complications. At Heritage Hospital, our cardiologists and support staff are well-prepared to manage these risks effectively:

 

  • Infection: We maintain strict hygiene protocols and provide antibiotics when necessary to minimize the risk of infection at the site of wire insertion.


  • Bleeding or Hematoma: Bleeding can occur at the site of wire insertion. Our skilled medical team closely monitors patients for any signs of bleeding or hematoma formation and takes prompt action.


  • Lead Displacement: There is a slight risk of pacing lead moving out of position. Our experienced cardiologists use imaging techniques to ensure the correct placement of the lead.


  • Arrhythmias: In some cases, temporary pacemakers can trigger arrhythmias. Our cardiologists closely monitor patients before, during, and after the procedure to address any arrhythmias.


  • Pneumothorax: In rare cases, the insertion of wires can lead to a collapsed lung (pneumothorax). Our medical team is skilled in managing this complication if it occurs.

 

Temporary pacemaker implantation is a crucial procedure for restoring healthy heart rhythm in cases of cardiac rhythm disturbances. Heritage Hospital in Varanasi offers advanced temporary pacemaker implantation services. Our highly skilled cardiologists are committed to providing advanced cardiac care with a focus on patient safety and well-being.

FAQ’s

This procedure is advised to maintain a normal heart rate/rhythm in patients with meagre heart rates due to any disease process. It is a life-saving emergency procedure.
In this surgery, a temporary pa pacing lead is placed into the heart's right ventricle, which is attached to a pulse generator to produce a standard heart contraction rate.
The pacemaker implantation cost in Varanasi is Rs. 10,000. The cost of the pacing lead is done on an actual basis. This cost does not include hospitalisation stays and medication charges. They are separately charged.
There are two types of temporary pacemaker implantation. These are dual atrioventricular chambers and even biventricular temporary pacemakers.
A temporary pacemaker is used in certain instances where a patient has a change in heart rate, maybe after a heart attack or infection. Thus, it lasts for only a few days.
The initial payment of the total cost of TPI in Varanasi at Heritage Hospitals is optional. One can pay 60% of the amount before the procedure and the rest later on. Yes, one can pay the entire amount in two parts. However, no discounts are permissible.
Usually, it takes 30 minutes for the procedure to get done. However, it may take some more time in some instances.

One needs to follow no specific instructions before the procedure. However, he will be told more by the referring Cardiologists.
After the surgery, the patient should keep the part immobilised where the procedure is performed. He should only keep sitting on the bed or change his position once PPI is done or TPI is removed.
Temporary Pacemaker Implantation is not a daycare procedure. It requires hospitalisation until the heart's normal rhythm is not established either naturally or through a PPI procedure.
You can resume your routine after removing the pacemaker. However, you should avoid any strenuous activities for a few weeks so that you recover fully and there are no chances of your heartbeat altering again.
