Interventional Cardiology Department
Interventional cardiology is one of the thriving directions of the modern medicine. Every year indications for interventional methods of treatment extend. This is caused not only by the absence of necessity to carry out of the surgical incision but also by high efficiency of treatment. Their use in healthcare contributes to decrease of mortality from cardiovascular diseases. Currently interventional methods of treatment are used not only in treatment of ischemic heart disease but also at congenital and acquired valvular heart diseases rhythm and conduction disorders, arterial hypertension, cardiomyopathy and so on.
There are 4 cathetherization laboratories in our center; angiograph of the last generation with improved technical characteristics and software is in every laboratory. One of apparatus is two-projection that allows us to decrease quantity of the used contrast agent in procedures and is actual in treatment of children and patients with kidney’s diseases. Laboratory specialized for treatment of complex heart rhythm disorders is equipped with modern apparatus Carto 3.
Acquired directions of the work of department:
- Diagnostics and interventional treatment of atherosclerosis.
- Diagnostics and interventional treatment of complex heart rhythm and conduction disorders including atrial fibrillation, ventricular arrhythmia.
- Interventional treatment of acquired and congenital valvular heart diseases.
- Interventional treatment of heart failure and prevention of sudden cardiac death.
- Interventional treatment of arterial hypertension.
Today practically all diagnostic procedures and surgeries at cardiovascular diseases are carried out in our clinics: implantation of pacemakers, resynchronized devices; radio frequency ablation; coronarography; coronary stenting; endovascular closing of the defects of interatrial septum, patent arterial duct. Not many time passed from the opening of our center but we have already introduced the following innovation methods of diagnostics and treatment: trancatheter implantation of aortal valve, denervation of renal arteries, endovascular closing of the defects of interventricular septum, intervascular ultrasound, implantation of the device for long-termed registration of electrocardiogram–Reveal, endovascular closing of the left atrium auricle, intracardiac ultrasound investigation.
We wouldn’t stop on the way of improvement of the quality of medical service to the population of Kazakhstan; our plans are the further introduction of new and effective technologies of treatment.
All above mentioned treatment allows us to increase the survival of patients, improve quality of life and relieve from use of multiple number of drugs.
