Cardiology Department

 

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:

In order to guarantee the most safe surgical environment for their patients, the IMM has set up an hybrid room. This room allows to perform minimally invasive surgery under 2D or 3D imagery, to rebuild and merge X-ray images with scan and MRI images, and to check in real time the effectiveness of the surgical gesture on the patient.

  • 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
