Health Care For Your Heart

Cardiology


Cardiology is an important branch of cardiovascular medicine which deals mainly with the various disorders of the cardiovascular system and the internal organs involved in the process of heart pumping.

Cardiology, apart from treating heart disorders, also treats patients suffering from urinary tract infections, asthma, migraine headaches, varicose veins, rheumatoid arthritis, facial paralysis, and various neurological disorders. The scope of cardiology is quite broad, owing to the interrelatedness of its branches. For example, vascular technology, electronic vascular technology, cardiac sonography, echocardiography, gastroenterology, haematology, orthopaedics, obstetrics and paediatrics, neurology and infectious diseases are all included within the ambit of cardiology. Thus the scope of this medical specialty is quite vast and can thus be considered to be an extensive area of specialization in medicine. Cardiology therefore constitutes a comprehensive range of modalities which are involved in the study, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the cardiovascular system and the internal organs involved in the process.

Invasive cardiology

Invasive cardiology is a rapidly expanding field of cardiologists, which focuses on the repair of internal organ defects by invasive techniques. There are two types of invasive cardiology – Vascular and Interventional Cardiology. Invasive cardiology techniques include coronary artery bypass grafting, myocardial infarction therapy (MIP), angioplasty, and stent placement. The main purpose of these procedures is to repair the damaged parts of the heart that are damaged due to various factors such as congenital heart disease, enlarged heart, congenital heart defects, atherosclerosis, congenital cardiac disease, and multiple myeloma

Non-invasive cardiology

As mentioned in the beginning, non-invasive cardiology has become the method of choice for many patients who are suffering from their heart disease. As the field of cardiopulmonary diseases grows, more options for treatment are becoming available to those who suffer from this condition. One such treatment option is ultrasound heart monitoring. This technology is becoming more popular because it is capable of providing those with heart problems with the knowledge of what is going on within their bodies. Through ultrasound technology, cardiologists can view the functions of the heart and how it is performing throughout an individual’s body in order to provide better insight into the possible causes of a patient’s heart condition. This is important in that proper treatment can be administered to those who are experiencing issues in cardiac functioning.

Just as it seems, non-invasive cardiology also is utilized to describe non-invasive procedures that are performed on patients without inserting anything into their body. Some of the more common non-invasive cardiology practices include the following: Percutaneous Electrical Stimulation (PES): Using thin electrical wires to deliver electric shocks to individuals who have symptoms of heart disease or angina. The shock is designed to reduce the pain associated with the heart to help with the patient’s cardiac recovery. Laser Diathermy: During a laser diathermy session, a specialist uses a low level laser to burn away at areas of damaged tissue in the human body. In this process, patients will likely be able to see changes in the light waves emitted by the medical equipment that is used during the procedure.
There are many other types of non-invasive cardiology that cardiologists can work with. These procedures often involve the use of ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging. Doctors who perform these types of services are known as vascular technologists. For more information on this and other specialty areas of cardiology, contact your local Texas health care centre. As you begin your search for a quality Texas heart care provider, you can call the Texas State Health Department for a list of qualified cardiologists near you.

Interventional cardiology

Interventional cardiologist is a specialized branch of cardiologists, which deals mainly with the surgically assisted catheterized treatment of various structural heart defects. Charles Dotter is widely considered to be the pioneer of interventional cardiology, following the development of open-heart surgery by German surgeon Hans Gertrud. The technique of using an electric clamp in treating congenital heart defects was pioneered by him in the early 1940s. His initial success with this technique resulted in treating a number of children with congenital heart disease whose symptoms did not disappear even after surgery. He subsequently developed a stent device to be used in the treatment of blocked arteries and diffused radiation for the treatment of various heart problems.
