Welcome to the Cardio-Thoracic Critical Care Program at MGM Healthcare

The Cardio-thoracic Critical Care or Intensive Care Unit at MGM Healthcare, takes care of postoperative cardiac and thoracic surgery patients. This highly specialized team carefully monitors and treats patients who have undergone complex cardiothoracic surgeries. It provides services for the surgical treatment of cardiac, pulmonary and oesophageal diseases. We offer a full complement of cardiac services for acquired heart disease, congenital heart disease and transplantation as well as minimally invasive and robotic surgeries.
Acquired heart diseases are treated by coronary artery bypass grafting, valve repair and replacement, treatment of thoracic aneurysms, and the insertion of pacemakers and electrical defibrillators. We have cardiologists and cardio-thoracic surgeons who have extensive experience in the treatment of adults and children with congenital heart disease. Our transplant programs include heart, heart-lung, heart-liver and lung transplantation as well as cardiac assist devices.
Patients admitted to the cardio-thoracic critical care unit are often recovering from a difficult surgery and are concerned about their recovery. Our compassionate team understand the emotional needs of the caregivers and provide them constant updates and transparent information about the patient’s conditions and line of treatment. We have a multi-disciplinary team of medical intensivists, cardiologists, anaesthesiologists, cardio-thoracic surgeons, clinician dieticians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, pulmonologists, respiratory care specialists, endocrinologists, physiotherapists, rehabilitation care specialists, who work together in providing the patients with best chance for recovery.

57-year-old patient presented in the ER after a severe heart attack with low BP. To regain BP on a severely damaged heart, the patient was immediately put on an IABP pump followed with opening of the blocked blood vessel in the heart (primary PTCA). Subsequently, heart circulation improved and the IABP pump was removed on the second day post-PTCA. He was shifted to the ward and discharged on Day 7 with good improvement. As the patient is the head of his family, we not only saved his life but his whole family.


53 – year- old presented in the ER post myocardial infarction with severe left ventricular dysfunction – Ejection Fraction: 15. The patient came in shock VT with heart rate of 180-200 fluctuating. Multiple shocks were given to revive the patient. Subsequently managed with inotropes support to improve the LV function and also, hypoxic injury of the liver and anuric kidney. seven days post therapy, he required LVAD to improve the LV. Patient is awaiting LVAD (bridging therapy) followed by heart transplant. With med, organs recovered.
