When should I see an interventional cardiologist?

There are a number of symptoms & conditions where you may be referred to one of our interventional cardiologist in Dubai including:

  • Heart Attacks or other Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS): This includes conditions where immediate intervention is crucial to restore blood flow and minimize heart damage.
  • Severe Chest Pain/Angina: Angina is chest pain caused by narrowed coronary arteries. Interventional procedures can improve blood flow and alleviate angina symptoms.
  • Valve Disease: When heart valve problems are severe and require intervention, an interventional cardiologist can offer minimally invasive options like TAVR or mitral valve repair.
  • Complex Arrhythmias: If medications fail to control certain arrhythmias, ablation procedures performed by electrophysiologists may be necessary.

Common Interventional Cardiology Procedures in Dubai:

  • Coronary Angioplasty and Stent Placement: This is the most common procedure, where a catheter is inserted to locate a blockage in a coronary artery. A tiny balloon inflates within the artery, widening the passage and improving blood flow. Often, a stent (a small mesh tube) is placed to keep the artery open.
  • Cardiac Catheterization: This diagnostic procedure uses a catheter to visualize the heart’s chambers and valves with the help of X-ray imaging. It helps assess heart function, identify blockages, and plan further treatment.
  • Ablation Procedures: These procedures use heat or electrical energy delivered through catheters to destroy abnormal heart tissue causing arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats).

Frequently Asked Questions
