Our field of action

 

Conditions treated and cured in this ward

 

We take care of every aspect of cardiovascular pathology:

 

  • Ischemic heart disease, angina, infarction caused by insufficient blood or oxygen supply to cardiac muscle
  • Heart failure, namely insufficient pump function by the heart
  • Arrhytmia, namely abnormal heart rate and pulse
  • Hypertension.

 

We are a team coordinated by Prof. Imad Sheiban, leader in coronary interventional procedures, having practiced coronary angioplasty, coronary stenting and treating atrial and ventricular septal defects.

 

We have particular experience in interventional arythmology.

 

We treat cardiac arrhythmias via transcatheter ablation, anatomical mapping system CARTO Merge, implantation of pacemakers, insertion of automated defibrillators, placing of biventricular leads.

 

The operational unit also has a Cardiological Intensive Care Unit, helping patients with acute diseases, needing constant monitoring of cardiovascular and breathing activity.

 

We also work in conjunction with University-hospital in Verona.

How we cure

 

A focus on the unit and its techniques

 

We use modern methods and technologies, like two new angiographic rooms and a haemodynamics and electrophysiology room where we perform: coronarographic exams, cardiac catheterization with haemodynamic study, percutaneous transluminal coronary angiography with coronary stent placement, peripheral angioplasty, percutaneous closure of atrial and ventricular septal defects, Electrophysiological studies, transcatheter ablation of arrhythmias (including atrial fibrillation ablation, using anatomical mapping system CARTO Merge), implantation of pacemakers, insertion of automated defibrillators, placing of biventricular leads.

 

In the ward we perform electrical cardioversion of heart arrhythmias.

 

We are at top levels in the nation for studies on arrhythmias through transcatheter ablation, by magnitude of case studies and results. CARDIAC REHABILITATION

We do not only provide quality cures, we also follow our patients in the rehabilitation program in collaboration with riabilitazione cardiologia della Casa di Cura Madonna della Salute for cardiological rehabilitation.

Outpatient Activity

Outpatient activity includes:

 

  • Cardiologic visits,
  • Electrocardiogram (ECG),
  • Echocardiogram with colour-Doppler ultrasound,
  • Transesophageal Echocardiogram,
  • Echocardiogram with provocative tests,
  • Holter dynamic ECG,
  • Registrazione potenziali tardivi,
  • “T Wave alternance”,
  • ECG stress test and bicycle ergometer,
  • Head up tilt test,
  • Transesophageal stimulation.

 

There is a clinic specially dedicated to prevention and treatment of heart failure.

 

Office visits are from Monday to Friday, from 8:00 to 15:00. During this time, visits considered urgent by the treating physician are carried out, without needing to pass through emergency room.

Doctor-patient relations

In the letter of resignation are included copies of the more significative tests performed during hospitalization. A brief relation on the clinical course is provided and necessary treatments to be performed during convalescence are prescribed: further assessments and checks are programmed.

 

Particular attention is dedicated to customization of services and cures.

 

Medics of this unit work together with other specialists, particularly internists, vascular surgeons, orthopedists, diabetes specialists, podiatrists, orthopaedic technicians, to treat conditions in a multidisciplinary team and choose the most appropriate therapy.

 

In order to improve communication between patient and doctor, a project was created in 2014: the nurse represents the point of reference for the patient during all the stay.

 

At the beginning of the stay, the patient is “assigned” to a “tutor nurse” who will be his spokesman for his necessities, interpreting and taking care of his needs.

 

Monday to Friday 8:00 – 19:00 Saturday 8:00 – 12:00
