cardiology in Israel

Cardiology in Israel as a branch of medicine specializing in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of heart and vascular diseases.

Israel has both the cardiology department in clinics in the country, and cardiology centers, equipped with excellent modern facilities. High quality is also ensured cardiac care physicians professional level and therapy corresponding to international standards.

Medical institutions of the country carried out a successful treatment of the following diseases:

  • aortic aneurysm;
  • aortic insufficiency;
  • aortic stenosis;
  • bradycardia;
  • intracardiac calcification;
  • stroke;
  • myocardial infarction;
  • cardiomegaly;
  • cardiomyopathy;
  • coarctation of the aorta;
  • myocarditis;
  • Buerger's disease;
  • acute coronary stenosis;
  • pekarditov;
  • aortic dissection;
  • ectopic rhythms et al.

diagnostic methods for the treatment of heart in IsraelCardiology in Israel

Spectrum surveys includes invasive and non-invasive methods.

Non-invasive diagnostic methods in cardiology Israel:

  1. Initial consultation with a cardiologist, a physical examination.
  2. Laboratory diagnosis identifies risk factors and complications of existing abnormalities of the heart and blood vessels, as well as evaluate the effectiveness of treatment.
  3. CT is used to detect a variety of heart disease and blood vessels. CT methods are: a cathode-ray CT and the multilayer (multislice) CT.
  4. MRI - a procedure by which it is possible to create high-resolution images, a flow rate measurement of the blood and the volume of the cavities of the heart muscle. With this type of diagnosis is carried out non-invasive angiography.
  5. Radioisotope methods of examination in cardiology Israel tomostsintigrafiya, myocardial perfusion scintigraphy, radionuclide ventriculography, positron emission tomography, synchronized with tomostsintigrafiya perfusion agents. These diagnostic methods are exploring different functional parameters of the cardiovascular system.
  6. Echocardiography - is ultrasound, which allows measurement of the cavity of the heart muscle, muscular organ tissue thickness, detect cardiac aneurysm walls and luminal thrombus and several other characteristics.

Invasive studies in cardiology Israel:

  1. Catheterization of central veins and arteries is performed therapeutic and diagnostic purposes, producing monitoring, embolization, infusion therapy, etc.
  2. Cardiac catheterization allows you to explore the cavity body, the next large blood vessels, to assess the individual part of the heart muscles, volume, location, etc. This type of survey is used for diagnosis -. Heart disease, surgical interventions, introduction ofpacemaker , Removing blood clots, to obtain X-ray images with contrast enhancement and expansion of narrowing of the arteries.
  3. A biopsy of the heart muscle is assigned to the diagnoses: myocarditis, infiltrative cardiomyopathy, life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias of unclear etiology, to detect cardiotoxicity of anthracyclines and transplant rejection, and others.

Heart Treatment in Israel

Israeli cardiologists prefer gentler methods of therapy.

Ablation in the treatment of heart in Israel

Heart Treatment in IsraelAlcohol septal ablation IVS (the proximal portion of the interventricular septum) used to treat patients with HOCM (Hypertrophic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy) with no conservative therapy effectiveness. The artery catheter, through which the contrast agent in the baffle tapers extending from the left ventricle to the aorta. Through a catheter introduced alkogolesoderzhaschy solution causing a controlled cell death. Partition takes the right size and the passage increases.

Ablation of Rotational the treatment of heart in Israel prescribed for the treatment of calcified stenoses in blood vessels located in remote places, and stenosis of vascular grafts. By an atherosclerotic plaque with a catheter fed rotablator - miniature high speed drill having a diamond tip. As a rule, after rotablation patient requires angioplasty.

Angioplasty, stenting, atherectomy Israel Cardiology

Angioplasty is a procedure which opens the affected artery using a catheter with a balloon at the tip. Indications are peripheral vascular disease, renovascular hypertension, lesions of the carotid artery, coronary artery disease.

balloon angioplasty surgery is not always enough. In some patients there is a risk of re-narrowing of the blood vessels - restenosis. To improve the results of angioplasty is now performed simultaneously with stenting.

Stenting- a procedure in the process of implementation which the stent. Performs various types of stenting: the coronary arteries, the carotid arteries of the lower extremities. Several kinds of stents are used: The polymer coated stainless steel, releasing drug substances.

Atherectomy unlike angioplasty and stenting does not split and presses the atherosclerotic plaque in the wall, and remove it. Forms of this procedure: direct, extraction atherectomy.

Other types of minimally invasive treatment of heart disease and vascular cardiology in Israel

Balloon valvuplastika is a method of endovascular therapy of stenoses valve. It is performed in congenital stenosis of the aortic valve, pulmonary valve stenosis, mitral and aortic stenosis. During the procedure, a tapered expanded by the heart valve catheter with an inflatable balloon at its tip.

Carotid endarterectomy is assigned in the therapy of diseases of the carotid artery and peripheral vascular disease. During the procedure, the inner wall of the artery is removed, the deposition of atherosclerotic narrowing and when destruction of the vessel.

To close an atrial septal defect (ASD) and patent foramen ovale sparing approach used in the treatment of heart in Israel - transcatheter closure. Through one of the vessels in the groin or forearm catheter with a balloon at the tip.

Israeli medical institutions also provide quality health care in the treatment of a wide range of diseases: skin disorders . ENT diseases . kidney diseases . malignant diseases of the hematopoietic system, and others.

Medical service will assist in the organization of the treatment of heart disease and blood vessels in the best clinics in Israel.
