Specialist Services at CardioCare
Cathlab services are an essential part of cardiac care and involve diagnostic and interventional procedures for heart-related conditions. At Cardiocare Hospital, our cathlab services are performed by highly skilled cardiologists and support staff who use advanced imaging and treatment equipment to provide patients with the highest quality of care possible. Here are some of the common cathlab services we offer:
Coronary angiography: This is a diagnostic procedure that uses X-rays and contrast dye to evaluate the coronary arteries for blockages or narrowing. A small tube called a catheter is inserted into a blood vessel in the groin or arm, which is then guided to the heart using X-ray guidance. Contrast dye is then injected through the catheter, and X-rays are taken to assess the flow of blood through the coronary arteries.
Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI): Also known as angioplasty or stenting, this is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat blockages in the coronary arteries. A catheter with a small balloon or stent is inserted into the blocked artery to widen it and improve blood flow.
Electrophysiology (EP) study: This is a diagnostic procedure used to evaluate the electrical activity of the heart and identify any abnormal rhythms or conduction pathways. During the procedure, a catheter is inserted into a blood vessel and guided to the heart, where it records the electrical activity of the heart.
Pacemaker and defibrillator implantation: These are procedures that involve the placement of a small device under the skin near the heart to regulate the heart’s rhythm. A catheter is used to guide the device into the heart, where it is then implanted.
Structural heart interventions: These are minimally invasive procedures used to treat structural heart conditions such as atrial septal defects, patent foramen ovale, and mitral valve regurgitation. During the procedure, a catheter is inserted into a blood vessel and guided to the heart, where it is used to place a device or repair the affected structure.
At Cardiocare Hospital, we have state-of-the-art cathlab facilities staffed by experienced cardiac care professionals who are dedicated to providing the best possible care for our patients.
