Cardiology

Cardiology is a medical specialty dedicated to studying heart disease, both organic -- affecting the valves, affecting valves, myocardium or coronary circulation-- as well as diseasesassociated with heart rhythm disorders; it  also deals with the impact other systemic (vascular or other) diseases can play on the same organ.

Given the increased prevalence of coronary heart disease in the developed world, the demand for Cardiology has grown more than for any other medical specialty, and this field has also probably incorporated more diagnostic, therapeutic and preventive technical advances than any other specialty; which is why this specialty is now so closely related to Cardiac Surgery, given its key role in the short, medium and long-term treatment of heart disease.  

 At the Lanzarote Care Center offers advanced screening and diagnostic techniques thanks to which we can provide the following services:

  • Cardiology Consultation
  • Ecocardiography
  • Stress Test
  • Electrocardiograph
  • Myocardial Spect.

At the Vecindario Care Center offers:

  • Pacemaker and defibrillator check ups.
  • Pre-surgery Check Up.
  • Cardiology Consultation.
  • Conventional Stress Test.
  • Transthoracic Echocardiography.
  • Transesophageal Echocardiogram.
  • 24-Hour Holter ECG.
  • Holter Blood Pressoure or ABPM
  • SPECT Stress Test (nuclear medicine).
  • Haemodynamics.
  • Arrhythmias and Electrophysiology.
  • Pacemaker Implantation.
  • Defibrillator Implantation. 

 

Our cardiologists’ main line of work focuses on the primary prevention of atherosclerotic disease, placing special emphasis on controlling cardiovascular risk factors (high blood pressure, dyslipidaemia, diabetes mellitus, smoking) as well as on monitoring chronic patients with a known cardiovascular disease to prevent new events (secondary prevention). In addition, we also offer a cardiology assessment for athletes in order to carry out the cardiovascular risk stratification when performing a physical activity.

With regard to the therapeutic management of cardiovascular diseases, Cardiology covers both the pharmacological treatment and the interventional treatment through catheterisation and stent implantation or through the implantation of cardiac devices such as pacemakers or defibrillators. Cardiology is closely related to cardiac surgery, a specialty that deals with the surgical approach of many cardiac diseases.
