New Delhi, March 16
The first-ever scientific meet of Endovascular Intervention Society of India held here was attended by more than 200 super specialists from India and renowned faculty from the USA, Germany and Italy.

This is for the first time that the world renowned super specialists from all the three areas of Endovascular Intervention, i.e. interventional radiologists, vascular surgeons and international cardiologists have come together on a single platform with a distinct objective of unifying the three different approaches to the non-surgical treatment of blockages in arteries of brain, kidneys and legs. The meet was addressed by Delhi’s Chief Minister Mrs Sheila Dikshit.

Endovascular intervention is basically the non-surgical treatment of blockages in arteries of brain, kidneys and legs. These blockages can result in strokes, uncontrolled blood pressure, heart failure, kidney failure, severe leg pain while walking and gangrene. Nearly 10 per cent of the patients with heart diseases have blockages of arteries going to the brain and 10 to 15 per cent can have blockages in kidney arteries. The prevalence of these blockages is on the increase in Indians and yet there is poor knowledge about its recognition and treatment till they cause complication.

The highlight of the meet was the presence of world’s top three super specialists in the area of endovascular intervention, including Dr Elio Piccinini, Professor of Vascular Surgery from Italy, Dr Klaus Mathias, International Radiologist from Germany, Dr Krishna Rocha Singh, Interventional Cardiologist from the USA.

Commenting on the objective of the meet, Dr Ashok Seth (Padma Shri), chief of Invasive and Interventional Cardiology, Escorts Heart Institute and Research Centre and Founder of Endovascular Intervention Society of India said, “Interventional Radiology, Vascular Surgery and Interventional Cardiology are three different branches of the same tree, i.e. endovascular intervention. There are a lot of similarities and overlapping in all these three non-surgical methods of treating the blockages in the arteries of the human body.”
