DR. SUPRATIP KUNDU IS YOUNG,DYNAMIC,ENTHUSIASTIC CARDIOLOGIST WHO HAS PASSED HIS DM FROM PRESTIGIOUS MEDICAL COLLEGE & HOSPITAL KOLKATA.AFTER PASSING HIS DM IN 2017, HE HAS SERVED HIS RESIDENT PERIODS FOR 1 YEAR IN MEDICAL COLLEGE KOLKATA.AFTER WHICH HE HAS JOINED AS CONSULTANT INTERNATIONAL CARDIOLOGIST IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR.HE HAD SPECIAL INTEREST IN PRIMARY ANGIOPLASTY,COMPLEX CORONARY INTERVENTION AND HEART FAILURE SERVICES LIKE ICD/CRT.
A 53 year old gentleman who was suffering from acute chest pain for about four hours came to AMRI Dhakuria’s Emergency in the midnight.
The ECG showed a massive heart attack. The patient was immediately admitted for a Primary Angioplasty, when an Angiogram revealed a huge blood clot in the arteries of the heart.
The clot was very efficiently removed with the help of Penumbra thrombosuction and the blood flow was restored followed by placing a stent. A precious life was saved in the most rapid process.
The super hero of this rescue operation was Penumbra Device. It is a latest generation instrument to address the challenging medical conditions related to huge clots in the arteries.Penumbra thrombectomy device is a specialized mechanical thrombus aspiration system which consists of a motorized pump and a special type catheter. This system works very effectively in cases of large thrombus (clot) because the specialized catheter disintegrates large
chunk of thrombus into small parts and the mechanical pump aspirates the clot. Generally it is used in large arteries like brain or arteries of legs or in pulmonary arteries. It is not commonly used in coronary arteries,
because CAT catheter may cause damage when rotating in a small sized coronary artery. But with a modified technique our cardiology experts connected normal thrombo aspiration catheter with Penumbra mechanical pump. This leads to outstanding results as the thrombo suction flow improves significantly and the stent insertion becomes
smooth and faster. This technique gave outstanding end result in previous cases too. Cudos to our Cardiology team.
