Cardiology

At Prince Court Medical Centre, we are committed to providing the most appropriate and highest quality of care to patients with cardiovascular disease. We specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular conditions in a highly integrated and multi-disciplinary practice, with availability of all cardiovascular specialties including paediatric cardiology

Cardiac Investigative Procedures:

There is a wide variety of tests available to investigate heart disease so that the cardiologist can advise on the most appropriate treatment. These include:

Non-invasive diagnostic investigations:

  • Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring
  • Ambulatory Holter electrocardiogram monitoring
  • Chest X-ray
  • Duplex vascular ultrasound
  • Electrocardiogram (ECG)
  • Event arrhythmia recorder
  • Transthoracic echocardiography (2D & 3D, Doppler)
  • Transoesophageal echocardiogram
  • Treadmill & pharmacological stress echocardiogram
  • Treadmill exercise stress testing
  • Computerized tomographic coronary artery imaging (CTA)
  • Nuclear stress/rest perfusion scans
  • Tilt-table test

Invasive cardiology

Interventional cardiology is “minimally invasive”, using catheters and catheter-based devices for diagnosing and treating patients with a range of cardiovascular conditions including the coronary, peripheral and renal arteries, structures of the heart (e.g. holes in the heart, valve disease), and cardiac rhythm problems. The procedures are carried out in the modern invasive cardiovascular laboratory, equipped with advanced technology such as biplane flat detectors and 3D cardiac mapping system for high quality imaging and to reduce radiation exposure and contrast (dye) usage. The cardiovascular laboratory is available 24/7 with all personnel including the cardiologist, nurses, technician and radiographer on stand-by, for the emergency treatment by angioplasty and stenting of  patients with acute heart attack.

Interventional procedures:

    • Diagnostic coronary and bypass graft angiography
    • Diagnostic right and left heart cardiac catheterisation
    • Diagnostic peripheral and renal angiography
    • Intravascular ultrasound imaging
    • Intracoronary physiological pressure wire measurement (FFR)
    • Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) – drug-eluting stent implantation, plain balloon and drug-coated balloon angioplasty
    • 24/7 acute angioplasty for heart attack patients
    • Peripheral and renal angioplasty
    • Renal artery denervation for treatment resistant high blood pressure
    • Percutaneous device closure of atrial septal defect (ASD) and patent foramen ovale
    • Electrophysiological assessment and treatment/ ablation of cardiac arrhythmias with 3D mapping:
      • Atrial Fibrillation
      • SVT
      • Ventricular Tachycardia
    • Left Atrial Appendage Occluder device implant
    • Temporary and Permanent Cardiac Device Implants
      • Permanent single chamber, dual-chamber pacemaker
      • Biventricular pacemaker implantations (CRT-P or D)
      • Leadless Pacemaker implantation (Micra)
      • Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator (ICD)
