They use technological equipment to evaluate the structure and functioning of the heart, which allows to establish the diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases, along with the most appropriate treatment.
Studies and procedures such as angiography, coronary angiography, or catheterization are performed in hemodynamics rooms to examine the state of the coronary arteries, pulmonary arteries, and heart valves.
Some of the main benefits of these rooms are their precision and safety since they are minimally invasive and painless techniques due to the type of anesthesia used.
When analyzing your medical history, it is possible that your ABC doctor will make some recommendations according to your procedure.
Once the procedure is finished:
In case a catheterization is required, the specialists in the hemodynamics rooms will insert a catheter together with fluorescent material to monitor cardiovascular function through different radiological equipment. The catheter can be placed through an artery in your arm or groin.
Upon completion, you will be transferred to an area where you can be supervised during your recovery. Remember that, in most cases, you will be able to return to your daily activities the next day.
At the Cardiovascular Center we offer you a wide range of prevention, diagnosis, timely treatment, and follow-up services to take care of you through a comprehensive and multidisciplinary care model. Come to us, we want to hear your heart.
