Heart Disease Diagnosis

Cardiac surgeries are usually performed when the blood vessels are hardened and that narrow down the coronary arteries. So, this complication is treated by cardiac surgery, and there are other complications as well like diseases in heart valves due to leaking, infection, etc. The Cath Lab has made these diagnosing heart disease procedures very simple. It’s an examination room where, with the help of imaging equipment, the arteries of the heart are examined. This makes it easier for doctors to understand the condition of the heart.

A few of the procedures which are followed in the Cath Lab are:

  • Coronary Angiogram is a special type of X-ray where a dye is used to show if there is any narrowing down the coronary arteries.
  • Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) or simply called Angioplasty, which is a non-surgical procedure, is followed to treat the narrowed coronary arteries.
  • Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) is a birth defect that is caused due to a hole in the wall between the two chambers of the heart.
  • Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) is a battery-operated device that is placed under the skin and thin wires are connected to the heart. Whenever the heart isn’t functioning properly, the device sends shock waves to the heart to get back to its normal rhythm.
  • A Pacemaker is usually implanted to treat a very slow heart. They are also implanted to treat fast heartbeats or according to the body’s needs which are caused during exercises or running or simply while resting. Pacemakers are placed under the pocket of the skin, usually in the shoulder.
  • Transesophageal Echocardiogram (TOE) is a procedure that examines the heart and its chambers during an ultrasound. TOE is only performed under heavy sedation or anesthesia.
  • Right Heart Study is done to put pressure on the right side of the heart and lungs and to examine its performance and build pressure in and around the heart.
  • Structural Heart Interventions is performed to fill the hole in the heart which is formed between the right and left sides of the heart.
  • Electrophysiology Study (EPS) is where the doctors study the cardiac rhythm disturbances. They understand the rhythmic disturbances and then choose the best treatment for them.
  • Radiofrequency Ablation is a procedure that is performed to cure rapid heart rhythms. This procedure is very much similar to EPS which is performed much earlier.
  • Cardioversion is a device used to bring back the heartbeats to their normal rhythm. It’s a set of paddles or patches placed on the chest and a shock wave is given to the heart.
