In an extremely rare case a 73-year-old male, was treated for multiple artery blockages via multiple stenting through keyhole surgery performed by Dr N N Khanna, Senior Consultant, Interventional Cardiology, Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals and Group Advisor of Apollo group of Hospitals along with his team.

The patient Roop Singh Sidhu, was suffering from multiple co-morbidities. He presented with a history of hypertension, short episodes of transient paralysis (transient ischemic attack) TIA, hypertension and varicose veins. Roop could hardly walk due to pain in his legs, leading a restricted life.

Dr Khanna said: “With advancement in technology, surgical procedures have been taken over by keyhole endovascular therapies. Here, a small puncture is made in the artery or vein and a micro-catheter is used to engage the respective artery and then the blockage is cleared by balloon, atherotome or stent.”
