Heart Disease Diagnostics
Heart disease is one of the most common illnesses in the world and can be caused by various factors. The symptoms of heart disease vary from person to person, but they often include chest pain or discomfort, shortness of breath, fatigue and nausea. Risk factors for heart disease include diabetes, high cholesterol levels and smoking. If you are diagnosed with any of these conditions or have any other health problems that increase your risk of developing this condition, then it would be wise to seek medical advice about how best to manage them. There are several treatment options available, including angioplasty (a procedure where a balloon is used to open up blocked arteries), stents (which help support blood flow through narrowed arteries), implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs), which monitor conditions like rhythm abnormalities detected via electrical pulses sent through wires attached directly into one’s heart muscle tissue; pacemaker devices placed around cardiac chambers which regulate electrical impulses generated within those chambers throughout a lifetime; bypass surgery where sections cut out from main arteries bypassing blockages within them; coronary artery bypass grafting surgeries performed when portions removed from existing vessels are joined together using new ones originating inside another organ such as a kidney).
An angiogram is a procedure that involves the injection of dye into the blood vessels. The dye shows up on an x-ray and allows your doctor to see where there are blockages in your coronary arteries, which supply oxygenated blood to the heart muscle. If you have coronary artery disease (CAD), your doctor may recommend an angiogram so they can look for blockages in specific areas of your heart. If you have CAD and no symptoms, an angiogram may help plan treatment options in case problems arise later on down the road. In addition to diagnosing CAD, an angiogram can also be used as part of treating it; if there’s damage from plaque buildup inside one or more of your coronary arteries, doctors might use stents (small mesh tubes) inserted through small incisions during surgery so they can open up blocked areas without causing further injury elsewhere within those same arteries’ walls.
Angioplasty and stenting
Angioplasty and stenting are two of the most common treatments for blocked arteries. Angioplasty is a procedure that uses a balloon catheter to open up narrowed or blocked coronary arteries. Depending on your condition and your doctor’s recommendations, it may be performed as an emergency treatment or scheduled surgery. The balloon is inserted into an artery in your groin area (commonly called a femoral artery) and then passed through one of those arteries to reach your heart muscle, which will expand against the walls of your coronary arteries and restore blood flow through them. The balloon can also be used with a new device called a stent which supports this structure so that it doesn’t collapse again once you have had your angioplasty done.
Ablation is a procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to destroy a small area of tissue that causes abnormal heart rhythms. It’s used most often for atrial Fibrillation but can also be used to treat some other arrhythmias (abnormal heart rhythms). Ablation is done in the heart catheterization lab by inserting a thin tube called an endocardial catheter into your blood vessels and guiding it through your heart until it reaches the area where you experience symptoms. Then, using real-time imaging technology, your doctor will precisely target this area with radiofrequency energy delivered through the catheter tip, so it heats up and destroys only the problematic cells without damaging nearby normal tissue or causing bleeding inside your body cavity–a potential complication when ablating large regions of tissue with heat sources such as laser beams or microwave devices outside of the body cavity (pericardial space).
Atrial Fibrillation is a condition where the heart beats irregularly, which can cause blood to pool in your heart’s atria (upper chambers). This can lead to clots forming and travelling through your body. This condition can be caused by high blood pressure, heart disease and heart attacks. The symptoms include fatigue, shortness of breath, dizziness or palpitations with no apparent cause; chest pain that doesn’t go away; frequent episodes of feeling lightheaded or fainting without warning; severe headaches accompanied by nausea/vomiting; blurred vision when standing up quickly from sitting or lying down position.
Transesophageal Echocardiogram (TEE)
The transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE) is a non-invasive test that uses ultrasound to examine the heart. TEE may be performed in a hospital or clinic, which is more accurate than a regular echocardiogram. TEE can be used to examine valves and other structures in your heart’s left atrium and your mitral valve if you have mitral valve prolapse (MVP). TEE may also diagnose abnormal blood flow through one of your arteries leading from your heart muscle back into its chambers–this condition is known as coronary artery disease or CAD.
