The Vithas Xanit International Hospital, in its commitment to the constant incorporation of the most advanced technology, has incorporated into its Heart Area a 3D echocardiograph with transthoracic and transesophageal probe availability. It is a system that has managed to revolutionize the world of cardiac imaging, since it allows a precise and reproducible anatomical and functional evaluation in real time, as well as a better diagnosis.
Advantages of the echocardiograph
It does not need reconstructions after the acquisition of the images, reason why it saves a lot of time and cost.
The new system also allows better monitoring of various pathologies and better monitoring of certain cardiac surgeries, thus improving the patient’s quality of life.
Dr. Gomez Doblas, head of the Heart Area of Vithas Xanit, explains that this latest generation equipment not only allows to improve the diagnosis of patients by transthoracic echo, but also, above all, to improve the monitoring of aortic prosthesis implants percutaneous (TAVI), closure of perivalvular leaks, eyelashes, foramen ovale permeable and interauricular communication with Amplatzer, as well as mitral clip implant, all of them complex cardiological techniques whose safety and efficacy increases considerably with the use of this new system.
One of the main advantages of 3D echocardiography is that it has a great impact on the lives of patients with these problems, which allows them to avoid conventional cardiac surgery.
What is 3D Ultrasound?
Three-dimensional echocardiography is currently considered essential in the monitoring of non-coronary intervention, valvular surgery and congenital heart disease, as well as in the study of left and right ventricular function and evaluation of cardiac prostheses.
The cardiac surgery team at the Heart Unit of Vithas Xanit International Hospital is recognized for its work.
Some of the treatments that we perform in this unit are:
– Implantation of pacemakers and cardiac defibrillators
– Coronary angioplasty
– Mitral Valve Replacement
– Repair of the percutaneous mitral valve
These first-rate professionals are qualified in the latest clinical procedures and surgical interventions used for cardiac pathologies, in particular the surgical techniques used to repair the mitral valve and aortic valve.
