Cardiological Society of India (CSI) was born on the 4th April, 1948 at Calcutta.
It is interesting to note that the CSI was established one year earlier than the formation of
the American College of Cardiology. The first Executive Committee meeting of the CSI
was held at Calcutta with Dr. B.C. Roy as the President. The first official conference of
the CSI was held in 1950 at Calcutta. The scientific council of the CSI is responsible for
formation of various subcommittees to help the growth and development of different sub-
specialties like, preventive cardiology, rheumatic heart disease, electrophysiology, non-
invasive cardiology, interventional cardiology, etc. The Official Journal of the CSI, the
India Heart Journal had its modest beginning in 1949 in Calcutta. The Indian Heart
Journal at present has achieved international standard and recognition. The capital city of
Andhra Pradesh is hosting the 59th Annual CSI conference.
AP chapter of CSI was founded in the year 1996. First annual conference of
APCSI was organized at Tirupati by Dr.G.Subramanyam, Professor & HOD, Cardiology,
SVRRGGH on 30-31st March 1996. We are proud that after 11 years APCSI annual
conference is being reorganised at Tirupati again.
The town of Tirupati is one of the most ancient and spectacular places of
pilgrimage in India. It is situated in the Chittoor district in southern Andhra Pradesh. The
town owes its existence to the sacred temple of Lord Sri Venkateswara situated on the
Tirumala Hill adjoining it. With a history that dates back to over twelve centuries, the
temple is the jewel in the crown of ancient places of worship in southern India.
The Tirumala Hill is 3200 ft above sea level, and is about 10.33 sq miles in area.
It comprises seven peaks, representing the seven hoods of Adisesha, thus earning the
name, Seshachalam. The seven peaks are called Seshadri, Neeladri, Garudadri,
Anjanadri, Vrishabhadri, Narayanadri and Venkatadri. The sacred temple of Sri
Venkateswara is located on the seventh peak, Venkatadri (Venkata Hill), and lies on the
southern banks of Sri Swami Pushkarini.
The name Tirupati, meaning ‘the Lord of Lakshmi’ should have been
appropriately applied to the village on the Venkata Hill, the abode of the Lord. However,
it has been popularly assigned to the municipal town at the foot of the Hill, while the
village around the Hill near His temple is called Tirumala (the Sacred Hill). Tirumala
Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) maintains twelve temples and their subshrines in the
Tirumala-Tirupati area. There are several places to visit in the Tirumala-Tirupati area.
There is ample literary and epigraphic testimony to the antiquity of the temple of Lord Sri
SRI VENKATESWARA INSTITUTE OF MEDICAL SCIENCES
Alleviating human suffering has been a part of dedicated services of Tirumala
Tirupati Devasthanams to the man kind. To provide the most advanced medical
technology to the needy, the TTD has launched a monument, a blessing from the Lord by
opening Sri Venkateswara Institute of Medical Sciences, a sophisticated super specialty
hospital at Tirupati. SVIMS was conceived in the year 1986 on the lines of AIIMS, New
Delhi and the foundation stone was laid on 18.04.86 by Late Sri.N.T.Rama Rao, the
Hon’ble Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh in the world famous pilgrim town Tirupati. It
was established with a view to providing Super Specialty facilities with nominal cost to
the poor. The hospital started functioning from 26.02.1993. By an Act of A.P. State
Legislature, this institute became a University in 1995. The present Director is
The following departments are rendering their services for the public :

Urinary Surgery, Endocrinology, Nuclear Medicine, Gastroenterology, General
Medicine, Oncology, Casualty, Anaesthesiology, Pathology, Biochemistry,
Microbiology, Radiology, Transfusion Medicine, Physiotherapy and Dietetics.
The T.T.Devasthanams brings one of the holiest of offerings ever. Pranadana – a
scheme blessed by everything the Lord Himself stands for, Sri Venkateswara Pranadana
Trust, aims at providing succor to the needy by offering them free and the best medical
care at the TTD run hospitals. The pranadana scheme aims at providing free medical
facilities to the poor patients affected with life threatening diseases of the Heart, Kidney,
Brain and Cancer etc. The pranadana trust was launched in the month of Sept 2001. So
far SVIMS has successfully carried out over 2500 surgeries / treatment to the poor &
needy patients in Andhra Pradesh free of cost under this pranadanam scheme.
The department of cardiology is the first one of its kind in the whole Rayalaseema
area of Andhra Pradesh, which offers all the non-invasive, invasive and interventional
facilities for all the cardiovascular problems. This department has a fully equipped
intensive coronary care unit, non-invasive unit and a cardiac catheterization laboratory,
all working smoothly since its inception. Though the department caters primarily to the
people of Rayalaseema region, patients do come from all over Andhra Pradesh and even
from other states. The number of patients seeking cardiac care is steadily increasing.
Till now around 8000 catheterisation procedures and over 2000 interventional
procedures have been performed with very good results. The department is imparting
academic/technical training to the Cardiovascular Technology students. Two DM post
