HEART CONDITIONS

•  Heart disease: myocardial infarct, unstable or stable angina.
  • Valvular diseases: aortic, mitral, tricuspid and pulmonary (acquired or congenital)
•  Diseases of the thoracic aorta, aneurism and dissection.t
  • Cardiac arrhythmia, tachycardia or bradycardia
  • Cardiac insufficiency
  • Diseases of the pericardium
  • Cardiac tumours etc.

TECHNlQUES

Non-invasive diagnostic techniques:

  • Echocardiogram
  • Stress echocardiography
  • Stress test
  • Holter
  • Insertion of cardiac defibrillators
  • Ablation of complex arrhythmia

Surgical techniques:

  • Myocardial arterial bridging
  • Conserving surgery of the aortic and mitral valves
  • Video-assisted keyhole surgery with scanner

Invasive interventional and diagnostic techniques

  • Coronarography and heart catheterisation
  • Exploration of coronary stenoses by measuring the coronary flow, endocoronary ultrasound, endocoronary imaging by optical coherence tomography (OCT)
  • Coronary angioplasty, bare or active stent, active balloon
  • Percutaneous aortic valves
  • Percutaneous correction of mitral insufficiency
  • Closure of left atrial

 

Interventional rhythmology techniques 
  • Insertion of cardiac stimulators and defibrillators
  • Diagnostic electro-physiological exploration
  • Ablation using radiofrequencies or cryotherapy
