Adult Cardiology Clinic
Ηighest quality of care in adults encompassing the full spectrum of cardiovascular dseases.
The Cardiological Clinic offers the highest quality of care in adults encompassing the full spectrum of cardiovascular dseases. The close cooperation of interventional cardiologists, electrophysiologists and cardiac surgeons ensures full coverage in the least of time.
Genetic control in cooperation with the clinical geneticist in familial hypercholesterolemia, familial aortic aneurysms, myocardiopathies, arrhythmologic syndromes or other diseases of the cardiovascular system when there is a hint of clinical benefit.
Individual Cardiovascular Risk Estimation. People who are at high risk due to multiple risk factors (i.e. hypertension, dislipidemia, diabetes mellitus, smoking, high body weight etc.) or known disease. Individual manipulation can slow the future danger for adverse events.
We use evidence based diagnostic procedures.
The measurement of cardiac coronary artery inflammation with high sensitivity CRP, genetic polymorphisms (LpPLA2), coronary calcium score with low dose CT, the presence of carotid atheromatic plaques, aortic stiffness, ankle-brachial index, urine microalbumin are some of the methods that we use to target therapeutically mainly to the persons with the highest risk and benefit.
Under the initiative of the 2nd Cardiological Clinic, «MITERA» Hospital takes part in the ROPAC (Registry of Pregnancy and Cardiac Disease) of the EURObservational Programme of the European Society of Cardiology.
- Atrial fibrillation-ABLATION
- Heart failure-cardiac resynchrinization
- Acute coronary syndromes-myocardial infarction
- Aortic aneurysm, dissection-endoluminal therapy
- Mitral valve insufficiency-MitraClip, valve repair/replacement
- Aortic valve stenosis-surgery, TAVI (transcatheter aortic valve implantation)
We currently use the E9 of GEMS for our echocardiography examinations. We employ all modern methods of imaging (ie stran and strain rate analysis and 3D imaging)
o Stress echo
• Tilt test
• Close cooperation of the 2nd cardiology Clinic with the Teams tends to ensure the optimal actions.
