Paolo Heart Center offers diagnosis, treatment and recuperation services for heart patients. All of these are performed by an experienced team of doctors, nurses and medical staff specialized in providing comprehensive treatment for heart patients with critical conditions
Advanced technology for accurate diagnosis
Exercise stress Test
This test examines heart performance during exercise under the supervision of expert medical staff. The unit displays electrical current waves in the heart and pulse rate continuously during exercise, when the heart beats faster than normal. This method of examination is able to detect heart beat irregularities and coronary artery disease.
Echocardiography is the process of sending non-hazardous high-frequency sound waves to various heart muscles in order to examine the performance of the cardiac valves, walls and muscles. Echocardiography is very useful for diagnosing cardiac disease, coronary artery disease and risks of heart failure.
24 hours Holter Monitor
The Holter Monitor examines heart rates and is suitable for patients suffering from intermittent irregular palpitations when no symptoms are displayed during a visit to the doctor. The doctor attaches the equipment in order to record heart rates for a period of 24 hours. Patient may perform their daily lives as usual and return for the doctor to remove the apparatus and take readings after 24 hours have elapsed.
Cardiac Catheterization CAG
CAG is one of the most effective methods available today for examining coronary arteries, and assisting doctors for accuracy of diagnosis of coronary artery disease in order to facilitate appropriate further treatment.
Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty PTCA
PTCA is a coronary artery disease treatment which does not require surgery, it is performed subsequent to the CAG technique. The treatment involves using a balloon to inflate the arteries so that blood can be supplied to the heart as normal. After the inflation of the arteries, a stent is inserted in order to prevent future blockage in blood vessels.
Bypass Surgery/Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting CABG
CABG is performed to relieve angina and reduce the risk of dead from Coronary Artery Disease. The bypass is done by using arteries or veins from elsewhere of patient’s body to construct new routes which improve the blood supply to the heart.
