In the "Zhan Mitrev" Clinical Hospital, all the conditions for performing complex procedures in the field of interventional cardiology are met.

Interventional cardiology is a medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease using minimally invasive techniques. Interventional cardiologists are doctors who specialize in this field and are dedicated to performing percutaneous procedures (through the arteries and veins) in order to treat various heart diseases.

These procedures are usually done in a special cardiac catheterization room known as an angio suite, where real-time X-rays and other images are used to guide the cardiologist during the procedure.

Diseases that can be treated with interventional cardiology and electrophysiology

Some of the cardiovascular diseases and conditions that can be treated through interventional cardiology include:

Coronary angioplasty – performed to widen coronary arteries blocked by fatty deposits by inserting a catheter with a prosthesis called a stent, which restores blood flow by unclogging the narrowed part.

Heart valve interventions – heart valve problems can be corrected through percutaneous procedures, such as aortic valve implantation via catheters, avoiding the need for open heart surgery.

Closure of congenital defects – some congenital heart defects can be corrected using interventional cardiology techniques, such as closure of atrial septal defects.

Treatment of aortic aneurysms – some aortic aneurysms can be treated by placing stents in the aorta to prevent rupture/rupture.

Treatment of cardiac arrhythmias - catheter ablation is a technique performed by an electrophysiologist - a specialist cardiologist, in order to eliminate areas of the heart that cause arrhythmias or atrial fibrillation.

In the "Zhan Mitrev" Clinical Hospital, all the conditions for performing complex procedures in the field of interventional cardiology are met.

The Jean Mitrev Clinic features a state-of-the-art hybrid operating room that has integrated imaging techniques that ensure the smooth performance of all types of procedures, from minimally invasive to those of maximum cardiovascular complexity.

It is important to remember that, although interventional cardiology is very effective in the treatment of various diseases, the diagnosis and treatment plan must always be recommended and implemented by a medical team specialized in cardiology, which evaluates the specific situation of each patient and determines the best treatment option.

At the "Zhan Mitrev" Clinical Hospital, a highly professional team of cardiologists is at your disposal, available for all your heart problems, which has the most advanced technology to diagnose and treat each patient with the highest quality and in a personalized way.
