The electrocardiogram, or EKG, is a test that records the electrical activity of the heart. This study provides information to diagnose cardiac arrhythmias and possible signs of heart disease. Luckily, the EKG is a quick and safe tool that helps our cardiologists evaluate the health of your heart.
Echocardiogram in Puerto Vallarta
An echocardiogram or Echo is an ultrasound technique that consists of creating real-time images of the heart while it performs its usual activity. In this case, the study provides details about the structure and function of the heart. For this reason, an echocardiogram allows our specialists to detect problems such as faulty heart valves, structural abnormalities, and more. Below are the most common echocardiograms:
A transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE) is a noninvasive cardiac ultrasound study. In general, TTE is the most common type of echocardiogram; the one performed on most people. This technique provides clear images of the heart and its structures. Therefore, it helps to identify and evaluate a wide variety of heart conditions.
A transesophageal echocardiogram is a more advanced technique that involves inserting a tube through the mouth into the esophagus. This study allows for clearer images of the heart, and a more detailed evaluation of the heart valves.
Cardiac CT Scan in Puerto Vallarta
Cardiac CAT scan, also known as coronary angiography, is a diagnostic technique that generates three-dimensional images of the heart and blood vessels. It also helps in the early detection of heart diseases.
Cardiac MRI in Puerto Vallarta
A cardiac MRI provides highly detailed images of the heart, without exposing the patient to the effects of radiation. It is an essential tool to evaluate the function and structure of the heart. It also allows for the identification of problems such as coronary artery disease, cardiomyopathies, and much more.
The stress test evaluates the heart’s response to exertion or physical activity. In particular, it is a useful test to detect problems that are not evident at a resting state. During this test, patches are placed on the chest, arms, and legs to register heart rate while the person walks on an electric treadmill.
The Holter monitor is a portable device that continuously records the heart’s activity and heart rhythms over a period of 24 to 48 hours. Generally, the Holter helps detect arrhythmias and/or syncope (loss of consciousness/fainting).
Pacemaker Placement and Review
A pacemaker is a small device that is inserted into the chest to help control the heartbeat. Our Cardiology department offers pacemaker services, including initial placement and periodic review. Frequent pacemaker check-ups ensure that a pacemaker is functioning properly.
Cardiac catheterization or cath is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the insertion of a catheter to assess the health of the heart and coronary arteries. We offer both diagnostic catheterization services and, when necessary, stenting procedures to treat arterial blockages.
Cardiac Electrophysiology (EP)
Cardiac electrophysiology is a subspecialty of cardiology that focuses on the heart’s electrical system and on diagnosing, treating, and managing arrhythmias.
TAVR in Cardiology
The TAVR is an innovative technique to replace a narrowed aortic valve without invasive surgery. Our interventional cardiologists offer this advanced procedure for patients who require this solution.
