The goal of hemodynamics and interventional cardiology is to treat heart disease percutaneously, that is, in the least invasive way possible. By introducing catheters through the arteries of the arm, the heart is accessed (sometimes by the groin), lesions are diagnosed at the level of the coronary arteries or cardiac chambers to treat them mechanically with different devices such as the intracoronary drug-eluting stent, valves or other devices for closing and sealing anomalous communications.
Given the improvement in the early diagnosis of ischemic heart disease, procedures can be done on a scheduled basis. On other occasions when the disease appears suddenly as in the case of Acute Coronary Syndrome, procedures are performed urgently to treat the artery responsible for the clinical picture.
In Quirónsalud Valencia Hospital we offer:
- Diagnostic and therapeutic studies of adult heart diseases.
- Diagnostic catheterizations including ventriculography, determination of invasive pressures, study of ventricular function, aortography, coronary angiography, right catheterization with pressure measurement, cardiac output and pulmonary reactivity test.
- Therapeutic catheterizations that include the treatment of ischemic heart disease in its different aspects (effort angina, unstable angina and acute myocardial infarction) by performing coronary balloon angioplasty and/or stent implantation.
