Fortis Clinique Darné’s Cardiac Science Department employs a comprehensive and holistic approach to heart health ranging from; prevention or early detection to diagnosis, treatment and heart surgery to rehabilitation. It thrives at offering the finest treatment and care to its patients with its state-of-the-art facilities, equipment, and a dedicated team of cardiologists including a full time dedicated heart surgeon, cardiac rehabilitation professionals and a widerange of medical professionals.

Since the setting up of this new department, it has been offering superior specialty investigations, treatment and the latest technologies to diagnose heart conditions (not including blood tests). Some examples are: Electrocardiogram (ECG), Echocardiography, Exercise stress testing, 24-hour Holter (EKG) monitoring including event monitoring, Angiography, Diagnostic Cardiac Catheterization (Coronary Angiogram) and Peripheral Angiography. With a full fledge facility, Fortis Clinique Darné’s Cardiac catheterization laboratory offers the gold standard for diagnosing heart disease. In that respect, Fortis Clinic Darné has invested into a high-end Cath Lab in 2013 allowing interventional procedures to gather information about cardiac function and blockages. The department is also equipped with a 2 Bed Isolation Intensive Care Unit (IICU) and a separate ventilation Unit.

New medical technologies in terms of imagery and interventional medicine have helped widen the scope of treatment for cardiovascular diseases. This advanced technology captures high definition images of the heart so that its structures and functions are made visible, thus cardiologists can make more accurate diagnoses and eventually come up with the best treatment plan for their patients.

Fortis Clinique Darné’s cardiac surgery team is headed by Dr A. Satar Bhoyroo, a highly trained cardiac surgeon (the only private institution having a full time cardiac surgeon), backed by a full time cardiac anesthetist, renowned interventional cardiologists, cardiologists, and cardiac nurses who are available round the clock. They are all geared to provide 24 hour emergency cardiac intervention with set medical guidelines on Cardiothoracic (Heart & Chest) Surgery, Coronary Disease, Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG), Redo CABG, Valvular Disease, Valve repair, Valve replacement, Atrial Septal Defect repair, Ventricular Septal Defect repair, and Abdominal and Thoracic aneurysm repair.
 The first 90 minutes (the golden hour) after a cardiac emergency are the most critical for long term effects on the heart. The emergency department teams up with the Cardiac Science Department to provide the highest level of interventional care through its Advanced Cardiac Life Support ambulance equipped with the most sophisticated facilities in terms of emergency transport. This enables doctors to deal with emergencies rapidly whilst providing high level of treatment for life-saving interventions. Fortis Clinique Darné’s Cardiac Science Department has a legacy of innovation and excellence. The cardiac team was the first to perform an insertion of ‘Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold’ (BVS) on the island. This revolutionary scaffold used in the treatment of myocardial infarction or angina pectoris enables the patient to recover faster while at the same time leaving no trace of the intervention as the stent will have completely dissolved three years later. Other advantages are that post-implantation treatment is shorter and there are fewer risks of complications as compared to the metal stent. The success of the first BVS insertion at Fortis Clinique Darné has since been followed by many more for its many advantages over more invasive interventions that were formerly the only available alternative in the country. Fortis Clinique Darné invests in its people and its processes with the collaboration of the renowned group Fortis Escorts India that provides frequent training to local cardiologists thus ensuring
an updated know-how transfer in Cardiac Sciences which is a constantly evolving medical discipline. This skills transfer also involves regular visits of a cardiac electrophysiologist from Fortis Escorts India who provides necessary expertise to Fortis Clinique Darné’s patients in diagnosing and treating irregular heartbeats or arrhythmias related to the heart’s electrical system.

The professionals of the Cardiac Science Department leave no stone unturned when it comes to identifying and treating a cardiac problem. This unit keeps pace with the current demand and its high adaptability to new technologies and advanced treatments makes it one of the best Cardiac Science Departments in Mauritius. Continuum care is at the core of the treatment philosophy at Fortis Clinique Darné’s Cardiac Science Department, and patients are taken care of right upon entering the hospital’s ambulance to its emergency service and throughout to the rehabilitation services. They are simultaneously assisted by the Supportive Services team through therapies and consultations with dieticians, psychiatrists and rehabilitation professionals. A pain in the chest or any doubt of a cardiac condition should be taken very seriously but with Fortis Clinique Darné’s Cardiac Science Department, its high caliber and dedicated cardiologists and heart specialists, treatment does not have to be distressing as your
heart will be in good hands.
