In order to investigate a particular heart patient and arrive at the correct diagnosis, physician/cardiologist tries to apply number of noninvasive and invasive laboratory tests. One may also take the help with other more specific noninvasive techniques such as Echocardiography in the study of Echocardiographic quantification of cardiac chambers and great Vessels, Doppler echocardiography, three dimensional (3D) echocardiography, echocardiography in CAD and acute myocardial infarction, Stress echocardiography , Tissue Doppler echocardiography and Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE).These tests have been discussed in their respective chapters mentioning their indications, methodology ,specificity and sensitivity. After the disease has been diagnosed ,the attending physician/cardiologist would like to treat the patient with one of the least invasive catheter based techniques such as Percutaneous coronary interventions (balloon angioplasty & stentoplasty), Artificial cardiac pacemaker therapy, Electrophysiological study & catheter management of cardiac arrhythmia, Peripheral vascular disease and Endovascular therapy, Percutaneous transcatheter management of valvular heart diseases and Percutaneous transcatheter management of congenital heart diseases. Their descriptions have been illustrated in their respective chapters. Specially designed chapter on “Robotic assisted cardiac vascular interventions” managing, ASD, VSD, MVP, Coronary artery disease and proatatic artery embolization for the treatment of BPH, have been introduced for cardiac fellows/cardiac surgeons/ cardiologists and postgraduates students of cardiovascular medicine.
