Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory

In the Cardiac Catheterization Department, every type of cardiovascular diagnosis e.g. heart-valve conditions, coronary-vessel conditions, congenital heart diseases, are assessed through cardiac catheterization or coronary angiographies.

The Laboratory of Hemodynamic Interventions is where cardiovascular conditions are diagnosed decisions are taken on potential types of treatment (conservative or surgical). The Laboratory, where all urgent incidents are treated, is supported by the Intensive Care Unit and offers immediate surgical coverage, if needed. Its infrastructure allows the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory to execute a series of interventions in all possible cases of invasive cardiology.

The following are treated:

  • Acute infarctions of the myocardium (intracoronary thrombolysis) combined with angioplasty (balloon)
  • Atherectomy (guided and circular)
  • Application of stents (intracoronary prepositions)
  • pacemakers

The Cardiac Catheterization Department (CCD) is on call 24 hours a day with ambulances and modern technological backup featuring state-of-the-art equipment; in CCD, it is possible to treat immediately a myocardial infarction through angioplasty and endoscopy.
