FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Cardiology is an area of medical practice that deals with disorders of the heart and the blood vessels. A person with heart disease or cardiovascular disease may be referred to a cardiologist for treatment. A cardiologist is a medical expert that is focused on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases that impact the cardiovascular system.
Invasive cardiology is cardiac care that uses surgery such as open heart surgery or minimally invasive surgery to diagnose and treat abnormalities in the heart's structure. The methods used might include angioplasty or stenting, which may involve piercing the skin of the patient using perforation, catherization or incision, patients should expect a temporary degree of post operative adjustment in diet and lifestyle.
Non-invasive cardiology focuses primarily on the detection and diagnosis of heart disease using external tests, hence the name. Being non-invasive in nature, the instruments used to evaluate the cardiac disorders are not inserted in the body, at Valiant this can include the use of technologically advanced scanning and imaging equipment, CT scans, echocardiogram and ultrasound. Non-invasive methods are sometimes favored in patients who are suspected of having valve related conditions, given the low risks involved in using non-invasive methods.
Normally, a physician would refer a person to a cardiologist when they exhibit some symptoms that may be indicative of heart problems. Valiant Clinic & Hospital offers you the chance to be seen by the best cardiologist in Dubai. Such symptoms are varied and should always be examined by a medical expert. More often than not a cardiologist would take a look at the heart conditions and issues that may heighten risk of heart disease like medical history such as family history of congenital heart defects or heart failure.
The answer to this question depends on whether a general feeling of poor cardiovascular health is just a feeling or if it is supported by some metrics taken from the body's vital functions. Some of these indicators of heart health can include pulse and blood pressure, systolic blood pressure is the pressure in the arteries when the heart squeezes and diastolic blood pressure is when your heart is relaxed or in between heartbeats. Normal blood pressure when at rest tends to be less than 120 over 80, the first number being the systolic and the latter diastolic, however this is dependent on age, high blood pressure is anything over 130/80.
Of course one of the best things to do is to come into Valiant Clinic & Hospital in Dubai, where our advanced imaging and scanning technology can give you the best possible picture of your heart's health, and in most cases this diagnostic non-invasive scan can be covered under most medical insurance providers.

CARDIOLOGY TECHNOLOGY FOR THE HIGHEST STANDARD IN PATIENT CARE
Our specialist cardiology team use the latest in medical technology to help in their diagnosis, our clinical suite includes the Philips Azurion C12, which features an advanced 12″ flat detector that provides high resolution imaging over a large field of view.
The Azurion C12 is a high performance ceiling-mounted image guided therapy solution that provides best-in-class imaging technology. Coupled with Philip’s revolutionary IntraSight applications platform, we are able to offer the full spectrum of cardiology diagnosis.
This technology allows us to visualize the aortic valve in the heart, along with the aortic arch and coronary tree, giving our experts the best possible picture of each patient’s cardiological health and allowing them to provide the highest standard of care using state of the art facilities.
Carto® 3 System
Optimal decision making is not possible without information, the Carto 3 system is advanced imaging medical technology that takes advantage of the latest developments in electromagnetic technology to build real-time three-dimensional (3D) maps of a patient’s cardiac structures. The system is designed to help electrophysiologists navigate the heart by generating an accurate 3D map, and with this information we are able to build the most accurate picture of the heart’s health, the most accurate diagnosis and the best options for treatment of any issues that may be uncovered.
The range of services offered at our facility for cardiovascular patients are:
Arrhythmia refers to heart rythm problems, and are experienced by a large number of people each year. There main types of arrhythmia are atrial fibrillation, supraventricular tachycardia, bradycardia, heart block and ventricular fibrillation.
Aherosclerosis refers to a thickening or hardening of the arteries that occurs when plaque starts to build up in the inner lining of an artery.
Angina is chest pain that is due to the reduction of blood flow to the heart muscles. Usually, this condition is not life threatening but can be a warning sign of increased risk of stroke or heart attack.
Blood clots, also known as thrombus, are the final step in the coagulation process that is part of hemostasis. Sometimes blood clots form when not needed and this can increase the risk of heart attacks, strokes or other serious medical problems.
Cardiogenic shock is a medical condition which refers to a situation in which the heart suddenly finds that it cannot pump enough blood to meet the body's requirements.
Cardiomyopathy refers to a disease of the heart muscle which inhibits the hearts ability to pump blood to the rest of the body.
Congenital heart conditions are a range of birth defects in the structure of the heart that affect the normal operation of the heart. Some of these conditions are more common than others and the most frequently occurring include pulmonary stenosis and coarctation of the aorta.
Endocarditis refers to the inflammation of the inner lining of the heart's chambers and valves, often caused by an infection, this condition is considered a life threatening heart disease.
Hypertension or high blood pressure is a condition in which the pressure in the body's blood vessels is unusually high, if left untreated this can be a very serious issue. Often, hypertension is caused by lifestyle factors such as being overweight, smoking or having an unhealthy diet.
Cholestrol is a fatty substance that is found in the blood, having too much of this fatty substance can impede or even block blood flow in various parts of the body.
There are a range of heart defects that fall under the category of heart abnormality, one of the most common types is a ventricular septal defect.
Heart valves can suffer from a variety of issues, stenosis is when the valve narrows or stiffens to the point where it does not left enough blood flow past, regurgitation or leakage is another common issue which occurs when the valve cannot close properly.
Heart failure refers to a condition in which the heart is simply unable to pump blood around the body in a healthy manner, usually because the heart muscle has become too weak or stiff.
A myocardial infacrction or heart attack is considered a very serious medical emergency where blood supply to the hear t is suddenly blocked and requires immediate treatment.
Myocarditis refers to the inflammation of the heart muscle or myocardium. Inflammation in such an important muscle in the human body can cause reduced blood flow as it impairs the heart's ability to pump blood, one of the common causes of myocarditis is viral infection.
One of the most common issues that we come across when it comes to arteris is the build of fatty deposits which restricts blood flow. This can have various negative effects depending on the artery impacted, when occurring in the artery carrying blood to the leg muscles it is known as peripheral arterial disease or peripheral vascular disease, or if it is the renal arteries (carrying blood to the kidneys) it is known as renal artery disease.
The aorta is the main artery from the heart to the stomach, an aortic aneurysm refers to a condition in which a bulge forms in the wall of the aorta.Other problems with the aorta can include aortic valve stenosis or aortic stenosis which is a type of valvular heart disease in which the valve between the lower left chamber of the heart and the aorta does not open fully
A stroke is also known as a brain attack and happens when a part of the brain experiences a rapid partial or total loss of blood supply.
Sudden cardiac arrest refers to the rapidly occurring loss of functionality in the heart and often causes issues with breathing and loss of consciousness, usually caused by starvation of oxygen due to the lack of blood flow.
