Heart Center : Scope of Services, Specialized Services

Provide complete examination since the early stage, treatment, prevention and rehabilitation for patients with heart and coronary diseases by physicians specialized in cardiac medicine, cardiac surgery and pediatric cardiac surgery along with veteran nurses specialized in heart patient care, emergency aid personnel through 24 hours, pharmacists, physician therapists and nutritionists with complete medical instruments and radiology technology for precise examination and treatment in every step. 
  1. 1. Electrocardiography (EKG)
  • It is an intial diagnosis for heart disease by recording the electric current produced by the heart muscle in every heartbeat. The electrical impulse indicates the heartbeat, heart rate, size of heart atriums, thickness of heart muscle, heart attack and M yocardial infarction.
  •  
  1. 2. Exercise Stress test
  • The examination can indicate if the patient has Ischaemic stroke or not by letting the patient walking on a treadmill at increasing levels of difficulty, while his electrocardiogram is monitored if blood flow is inadequate for the heart muscle due to heart attack or Ischaemic stroke.
  •  
  1. 3. Echocardiography
  • The examination helps diagnose the heart by using Echocardiogram, a procedure in which the high frequency sound waves are used to effectively assess the heart’s diseases including prognosis, severity detection and follow up treatment results of heart and coronary diseases, especially congenital heart defects, valvular heart disease, heart muscle disease and pericardial heart disease.
  •  
  1. 4. Ankle Brachial Pressure Index (ABI)
  • It is an intial diagnosis for diseases arising from blockage of leg arteries by using the method of Ankle Brachial Pressure Index (ABI) to examine if the arteries on such leg are blocked or narrowed.
  •  
  1. 5. Coronary artery examination by 64 Slide CT Scan
  • In the past, diagnosis of fat and plaque buildup in coronary arteries required cardiac catheterization and contrast media injection to explore the condition of coronary arteries. But now examination of fat and plaque buildup in coronary arteries can be done by 64 Slices CT Scan without contrast media injection or cardiac catheterization. It can also examine how much the plaque buildup narrows the coronary arteries by injection of medicine into the arm and asking the patient to hold his breath by 12 seconds. After that the computer will create the image of the coronary arteries enabling the doctor to examine how much the plaque buildup narrows the coronary arteries and plan for further medical treatment or monitoring. 64 Slices CT Scan is an initial examination which provides high precision.
  •  
  1. 6. 24-hour Holter Monitering ECG
  • It is a continuous tape recording of a patient's EKG for 24 hours, so the patient can take a rest at home or go to work as usual. The method is used to examine the heart wave when the patients has irregular symptoms or irregular heart wave even though he has no symptom in 24-48 hors. The examination is sutiable for patients with intermittent heart shivering, always feeling dizzy and abnormal heart shivering but sometimes these symptoms do not appear when seeing the doctor.
  •  
  1. 7.Heart and Coronary Artery Examination by MRI/64 Slide CT Scan
  • 7.1 Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
    • It is the latest innovation in heart examination that creates distinctive images allowing physicians to apparently see differences in tissues and facilitating heart and coronary artery diagnosis. It can create images in every plane and aspect and patients do not have to change their posture and also creates 3D images to help diagnose various types of heart diseases such as constriction of coronary arteries or heart cicatric, cardiac asthenia, valvular heart disorder, congenital heart disease and heart failure, and also diagnoses lower artery diseases in other organs.
  • 7.2 High-Speed 64 Slide CT Scan
    • It is a complete examination procedure for the heart which is beating all the time and giving high resolution X-ray imaging and precise examination result. The X-ray imaging allows physicians to see the heart and coronary arteries in different aspects, either 2D or 3D, particularly coronary artery conditions. Besides, it provides precise examination result comparable to contrast media injection without using cardiac catheterization method and also additional information on calcium or plaque content in coronary arterial walls which could be triggers of ischaemic stroke in the future. It can be also used to examine conditions of heart muscle, pericardium and other arteries all over the body without admission to the hospital.
    •  
  1. 8. Cardiac Catherization
  • It is to examine characteristic and condition of coronary arteries for level of constriction and position of constriction, heart muscle activity, cardiac circle and pressure in each atrium to thoroughly identify cause and symptoms of heart disease and plan for proper medical treatment.
    • 8.1 Calcium Score by CT Scan
    • 8.2 Medication : Thrombosis Center : Wafarine Clinic (Hematology & Vascular)
    • 8.3 Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI)
    • 8.4 Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angiography (PTCA) and Coronary Stent
    • 8.5 Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery (CABG)
      • 8.5.1 Off-Pump Coronary Artery Bypass (OPCAB) Surgery
      • 8.5.2 Surgery using All Arterial Conduits
      • 8.5.3 Minimally Invasive Cadiac Surgery
    • 8.6 Invasive and Interventional Cardiology /Cath lab
    •  
  1. 9. Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery
    • ​​is a treatment for patients with severely constricted coronary arteries with all types of cardiac surgery as follows:
  •        9.1 Coronary angiography
  •        9.2 Vascular Medicine
  •        9.3 Cardiovascular Surgery
  •        9.4 Open Heart Surgery
  •        9.5 Thoracic Surgery
  •        9.6 Permanent Pacemaker
  •        9.7 Preventive Cardiology & Cardiac Rehabilitation

  2. 10. Valve Replacement
    • ​​When cardiac valve has abnormal conditions or is so severely damaged that it cannot be repaired, valve replacement surgery is responsively essential. Mechanical valves are made from materials such as plastic, metal or human or animal tissues. The two kinds of mechanical valves have different benefits and indications depending on patients’ symptoms. Valve replacement surgery usually takes about 2-4 hours.
  3.  
  4. 11. Valve Repair
  • Valve repair surgery is to repair cardiac valve disorders and enable patients to live with stronger heart after surgery without taking anticoagulants that possibly leading to complications including paralysis due to brain bleeding. The surgery provides precise advance assessment of the treatment result.
  •  
  1. 12. Congenital Heart Disease Surgery for Adults
  • Symptoms of congenital heart disease include heart septal defects. Cyanotic congenital heart disease requires surgical treatment to prevent possible complications even though patients still do not have certain symptoms such as cavitary lung infection and high blood vessel pressure to the lung.
  •  
  1. 13. Chest Cavity Aneurysm Surgery
    • Patients with chest cavity aneurysm usually have certain symptoms including acute chest pain through the back or some triggers of aneurysm. These patients have to be given artery replacement surgery with artificial artery to prevent artery fracture which could lead to sudden death.
