Cardiology

Best cardiologist in Begur


A normal heartbeat range falls between 60 and 100 beats per minute, and anything below 60 beats per min is described as bradycardia or an abnormally slow heartbeat. It may not always be serious, but at the same time, it must not be overlooked as a slow heartbeat rate is a common symptom in patients diagnosed with either heart inflammation, blocked arteries, or damaged heart tissues. If such a thing is neglected over a prolonged period, you may be at a higher risk of facing a cardiac arrest or heart attack. Thus any such symptoms must be immediately reported to a cardiologist, especially if heart problems run down your family line.

Angiogram

Angiography is a diagnostic procedure that utilises x-ray images to understand the blockages in arteries and veins causing hindrance to smooth blood flow. A contrast material (dye) is injected to enhance the clarity of images. The dye circulates, highlighting the affected areas, making it easier for a doctor to investigate the root cause of the blockage.

Angioplasty

Sometimes unhealthy lifestyle leads to the formation of fatty buildups along the inner lining of the artery, narrowing the passage. This buildup is called atherosclerosis, causing chronic heart diseases. Angioplasty is a procedure to widen or open the blocked arteries to ensure smooth blood flow to the heart. It is often practised when an individual…

Emergency Percutaneous Coronary…

This is a non-surgical procedure that is used to treat coronary arteries for stenosis. It is a combination of angioplasty & stenting that widens narrowed and blocked coronary arteries and restores blood flow from the heart. In cases of acute heart attacks (Myocardial Infarctions), PCI is used as an emergency treatment. PCI is considered to be an alternative…

Cardiac Device Implantation

A cardiac device helps control irregular heartbeats to protect against heart rhythm disorders. One of the most commonly used cardiac devices is a pacemaker, which produces electrical stimuli to the heart to help it maintain rhythm. An Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) is used to assist the heart's ventricles to restore their capacity after…

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI)

The aortic valve controls the blood flow from your heart to the rest of the organs. TAVI is a minimal invasive procedure to replace your damaged or diseased aortic valve with a new man-made one using a narrow tube called a catheter. This is inserted into a large blood vessel in your groin or chest.

Balloon Pulmonary Valvotomy

The heart’s two lower chambers are the ventricles and the right ventricle pumps blood to the lungs. It connects to the pulmonary artery, the main blood vessel leading to the lungs. Between the right ventricle and the pulmonary artery is the pulmonary valve, one of the heart’s four valves. In a normal heart, the pulmonary valve opens fully when the…

Read More

Balloon Mitral Valvotomy

The mitral valve is a valve with two flaps in the heart that lies between the left atrium and the left ventricle. Sometimes, the valves don't open or close properly, disrupting the blood flow through your heart to your body and also causes blood to leak backward to the left atrium. The valve may also be narrowed. Balloon Mitral Valvuloplasty is a procedure…

Read More

Ventricular Septal Defect VSD…

VSD is a hole in the wall called septum, separating the two lower chambers of the heart. In a normal heart, only the left side pumps blood to the body, and the right side to the lungs. With an abnormal opening between the ventricles, a large amount of oxygen-rich (red) blood from the heart's left side is pushed through the hole into the right side.…

Read More

Adult congenital heart disease…

Adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) Congenital heart disorders are the most common type of birth defect. These can range from simple ones with no symptoms to complex types which are severe and life-threatening such as a hole in the heart that causes blood from the left and right sides of the heart to mix, or even a narrowed valve that blocks blood…

Pulmonary Arteriovenous Malformation…

This condition occurs when arteries and veins have abnormal connections between them. Pulmonary AVMs act as direct conduits between the pulmonary artery and the pulmonary vein, which reduces blood oxygen levels, and also allows clots and bacteria to bypass the normal filtration process of the lung capillaries. Pulmonary AVMs are prone to rupturing,…

Automated Cardioverter Defibrillator…

The automated implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (AICD) is a tiny electronic device that is implanted in the chest to prevent sudden death from cardiac arrest caused due to fast heart rhythms called tachycardias. The surgery involves inserting insulated wires into the veins near your collarbone and moving them through X-ray images, to your heart.…

Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy…

CRT is prescribed for patients with heart failure or arrhythmia (irregular heart beat). There are two types of CRT devices – one is the biventricular pacemaker and the other is the same device which includes a built-in implantable cardioverter defibrillator and is called a cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator (CRT-D).

Yes, a yearly health check-up that includes a blood pressure check, lipid, and cholesterol test and a discussion with your doctor about other risk factors should not be overlooked.

The doctors recommend an upright sleeping position for the first few weeks post-surgery so that the chest bones area can heal quickly. One can sleep on a folding bed and take the support of a pillow so that the neck and spine don't face any discomfort and ensure a healthy sleep.

One should avoid consuming red meat, butter, cream, cheese, and poultry skin as they contain high levels of saturated fats. Fried and packaged foods must be avoided at all costs as they impart unhealthy cholesterol to our bodies. To know more visit the best cardiologist hospital in Begur.

One usually doesn't have to prepare themself before an ECG test, and there is no restriction on the consumption of food or drinks. One will only have to ensure that the chest is clean and shaved so that the hair doesn't hinder electrical waves from passing through.

A normal ejection fraction is between 50% and 70%, which means the left ventricle pumps out between 50% and 70% of its total volume. An ejection fraction between 40% and 49% is considered “borderline.” Get detailed knowledge regarding this with the help of the top cardiologist in Begur.

Angiograms are generally safe, and complications occur less than 1% of the time. However, there are risks with any test. Bleeding, infection, and irregular heartbeat can occur. More serious complications, such as heart attack, stroke, and death, can occur, but they are uncommon.
