Fortis Hospital develops new stenting technique
‘Nano Crush’ – a breakthrough technique for stenting of branching arteries – has been developed by a team of doctors at Fortis Hospital, Anandapur in Kolkata.
The technique was recognised at the prestigious European Bifurcation Society meet held in Rotterdam recently. A team, led by Chief of Cardiology Dr Shuvanan Ray, and comprising Dr Prithwiraj Bhattacharya, Dr Priyam Mukherjee and Dr Siddhartha Bandhopadhya were involved in the project.
The treatment of stenosis (abnormal narrowing) at the branching points of arteries is a major challenge for Interventional Cardiologists.
