By non-invasive imaging
In recent years, alternatives have been sought
Traditional imaging with new
High-resolution imaging techniques such as
Cardiac scintigraphy and SPECT
This unit allows the realization of studies for
early diagnosis of Coronary arteries and
revascularization treatment for patients
With angina pectoris or acute myocardial infarction
Myocardium. This service is available
For urgent treatments on a permanent basis.
Amongst diagnostic techniques
and the most common treatments we offer are:

Sometimes the heart loses its capacity
to regulate the rhythm of the heartbeat. These type of
Alterations are very frequent and have led to
to the creation of a professional research team to
identify the cause and to
pose treatment if cure is not possible.

The hospital cardiac surgery team
Quirónsalud Torrevieja consists of
a large multidisciplinary team of
Cardiac surgeons, perfusionists, anesthetists,
Instrumentalists and auxiliary personnel.
The medical team has a success rate
Higher than 97%. Mortality data is
Less than 3% for the global
2500 surgeries performed to date (the
expected mortality according to Euroscore I
Of 9.7% and according to Euroscore II of 5.6%).
Within our portfolio of services
we have to highlight our coronary surgery without
extracorporeal circulation / coronary surgery
without pumps with double mammary arterial grafts
that contribute to
37% of the total activity in our Coronary
surgery unit when the average in Spain is around 30%.
We also make a special reference to
Aortic valve surgery in high-risk patients.
We also highlight "off-pump" bypass surgery1
(Bypass surgery that is performed on your heart whilst it is still beating.)
This intervention is performed by very few
Medical teams in Spain and allows an
Early recovery of the patient with a
Lower rate of complications (brain,
Renal, transfusion, etc.).
The team consists of cardiologists and intensive care
Working together closely
in order to obtain the greatest guarantees
during the surgical procedure, and also
during the postoperative period.
