Interventional cardiology

The cardiology department provides care for all cardiac pathologies. For exemple Coronary insufficiency, high blood pressure, heart rhythm disorders, congenital heart disease and vascular pathologies.

The service provides ongoing care by a cardiologist 24 hours a day. It has intensive care units, conventional hospitalization, and day hospital. As well as a modern technical platform at the cutting edge of technology for all cardiovascular explorations and treatments.

Our Treatments

The cardiology department has an intensive care unit equipped with 6 beds for the treatment of acute heart attacks and other cardiac emergencies. Monitoring of hospitalized patients is ensured by a cardiologist on call, present 24 hours a day, and trained staff, using 8 telemetry instruments.

Visits: from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. and from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. – please respect one visitor per room.

Electrocardiography (ECG) : examination of the heart rhythm based on a graphical representation of the electrical currents generated by the heart (electrocardiogram) to detect abnormalities in the heart rhythm or of coronary origin.
Holter ECG recording : Continuous recording of the electrocardiogram over 24 hours using the Holter method, to detect abnormalities in heart rhythm or of coronary origin during everyday activities, outside of any hospitalization.
Transthoracic ultrasound (TTE) : Ultrasound-based exploration imaging technique to recognize diseases of heart valves and heart muscle function.
Transesophageal ultrasound (TEE) : Ultrasound to recognize abnormalities not visible through standard examinations (intracardiac clot, infection, etc.).
Pediatric echocardiography : Diagnosis of heart defects congénitales.
Stress test : Test to record cardiac activity during physical activity (test on a treadmill or bicycle ergometer) and detect coronary disease (blockage of a coronary artery). Its place is preponderant in the preparation of high-level athletes.
Stress ultrasound : Examination to detect coronary artery disease in patients at risk (ischemia or reduced arterial vascularization) or to monitor a known disease.
Arterial duplex ultrasound : Exploration imaging technique based on ultrasound to study the state of the arterial vessels (stroke assessment, and arteritis assessment).
Venous duplex ultrasound : Exploration imaging technique based on ultrasound to study the venous system. also detect clots (phlebitis, pulmonary embolism).

Coronary angiography : Medical imaging technique carried out using catheters (or probes mounted in the heart). to visualize the coronary arteries and thus characterize certain lesions or promote stent implantation during angioplasty.Angioplasty :Using catheters, intervention to dilate a narrowed or blocked artery. For example by installing a stent (small metal tube inserted into an artery to facilitate blood circulation).

Our center is equipped with Artisone which is an angiography system, which claims its difference by adopting a new approach to interventional imaging. It incorporates proven cutting-edge technologies, as well as next-generation tools that improve image quality.

Pacemaker : implantation of a pacemaker in patients suffering from a very slow heart (bradycardia). Cardiac stimulation consists of delivering low-energy electrical impulses to the heart muscle.
Implantable automatic defibrillator : Unlike the stimulator which delivers weak electrical impulses, the implanted defibrillation box delivers a higher energy electrical shock. Cardiac defibrillation is prescribed for patients with fibrillations (disordered contractions of the heart muscle) or in cases of ventricular tachycardia (accelerated heart rate).
Electrophysiological exploration : examination carried out using catheters (or diagnostic electrophysiology probes) mounted in the heart to identify the targets to be removed as part of the ablation of tachycardia (accelerated heart rate).
Ablation : with the same probe as the exploration one, it involves burning the fibers or cells responsible for the arrhythmia (heart rhythm disorder).

Coroscanner :Anatomical x-ray technology to study the coronary arteries, aorta, pulmonary veins, pericardium (thin membrane surrounding the heart), cardiac function, and monitor stents (small metal tubes inserted into an artery to facilitate blood flow) .
