We truly make the impossible possible through a pinhole. This was one of the first state of the art interventional radiology departments to start in the country and over the last 30 years, we have performed several thousand procedures across the body. It was here that procedures like carbon dioxide angiography were introduced for the first time in India. It was also at the Kovai Medical Centre and Hospital that procedures for treating fibroids, aneurysms in the brain and cancer liver were pioneered by Dr. Mathew.
One of the few centres in India which offers a full post-doctoral super speciality degree in interventional radiology and has several postdoctoral students staying within the hospital, thus providing 24X 7 care within minutes of arriving at the hospital.
The division is equipped with a state of the art Bi-plane angiographic suite with the capability of doing three-dimensional angiography and CT scans. It is also the only private hospital in India to have a second interventional radiology suite with state of the art digital features.
We routinely perform include treating of aneurysms in the brain and vascular malformations, the opening of blocked blood vessels in the brain especially in stroke, angioplasty and stenting of any blood vessel in the body starting from the blood vessels that supply the brain, the arms, the legs, the kidneys and intestine, and treating aneurysms in the chest and the abdomen. We also treat a variety of diseases by blocking abnormal vessels especially for tumours in the liver and the uterus and also for the treatment of active bleeding and abnormal clusters of the blood vessels. We also treat diseases in the liver where the pressure of the blood vessels is extremely high and patients present with bleeding and also block veins, especially in the leg. The department believes that if a procedure is done anywhere in the world it is also done at the division of interventional radiology at Kovai Medical Centre and Hospital.
I run a textile business where my presence is crucial. When I was diagnosed for uterine fibroids, I thought the treatment would put me to bed for a few weeks. Thanks to Dr. Mathew and the Interventional Radiology techniques, I was back on my feet on the third day, to my business as usual.
I had an unbearable headache and was taken to the hospital. Further investigations revealed a blood clot in the brain secondary to a ruptured AVM. My family was dependent on me, getting back to work was crucial. At KMCH Dr. Cherian and his team blocked the abnormal blood vessel without opening my brain. I was soon back to normal. The meter in my auto is running again, quicker than I thought.
One day strangely I felt a kind of heaviness in my bowels. I had blood pouring when I went to the toilet. Over the next few hours, I started losing huge amounts of blood every time I emptied my bowels. I was nearing death. A timely procedure done by Dr. Mathew saved my life. I imagine an open surgery would have kept me for weeks in bed not to mention the other discomforts. I was back attending my patients on the third day.
