Patients often come to me with a request to recommend a good cardiologist in Valenciaboth pediatric and adult patients. Highly qualified cardiologists in Valencia, Castellone help you identify and treat, if you have, cardiovascular disease.
CVD includes the vast majority of lesions of the heart muscle and blood vessels of the heart:
• narrowing of the lumen of blood vessels (ischemic disease),
• rheumatic heart disease (heart damage on the background of rheumatism),
• heart defects, etc.
Ultrasound examination of the heart in Spain will help to identify hidden problems that threaten to develop into a serious disease over time. Diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases in Valencia is carried out by doctors of the highest qualification - regardless of the stage of the disease, they will do everything possible to reduce the severity of symptoms, reduce the risk of serious consequences and improve the patient's quality of life.
At the service of our clients is cardiology in Valencia. You can undergo a full range of examinations, having received advice from highly qualified specialists in Russian. These examinations are also included in the special Cardiology Check-up in Valencia programs.
MAGNETIC CARDIAC RESONANCE
It is a non-invasive, safe cardiac imaging method that relies on magnetism and radiofrequency waves to recognize in detail the function and structure of the heart. For magnetic resonance imaging, the patient's heart is placed in the scanner, and it is important that there are no metallic elements.
Perhaps, there is simply nothing more technologically advanced today than this examination of the heart. It remains only to use contrast for painting the vessels of the heart, but this is a completely different topic for discussion, which you can get acquainted with in our main examination section.
MRI WITHOUT CONTRAST allows you to give an anatomical and functional assessment of all structures of the heart, allows you to accurately determine the diameter and volume of the heart cavities, as well as the function of the valves, provide additional information for the echo signal in patients with heart disease.
CONTRAST MRI OF THE HEART (REALCE EXTENSION) evaluates myocardial viability or late enhancement with GADOLINIUM and allows assessment of the extent of cardiac muscle damage in patients with a history of myocardial infarction. This information is useful in making decisions about revascularization in patients with ventricular dysfunction of ischemic-necrotic origin.
MRI is indispensable for rate myocardiopathy and provides valuable information on diseases affecting the myocardium, and in many cases it is the method of choice: hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy, arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia, myocarditis, amyloidosis, sarcoidosis, non-compact cardiomyopathy.
The genetic test includes a basic list of genetic diseases and mutations of the corresponding genes. Useful for both common and rare cardiac diseases. This is an exam that, based on genetics, provides information about possible genetic abnormalities that may predispose to sudden cardiac death, that is, vulnerability to certain hereditary heart diseases.
All the main genes responsible for the state of the heart as an organ as a whole will be investigated and analyzed, and the genes for hereditary diseases of the heart and central vessels (GEN gen MYLK, gen MYH11, gen ELN) will also be included.
The main list of genetic diseases:
- Familial thoracic aortic aneurysm 7 - MYLK gene
- Familial thoracic aortic aneurysm 4 - MYH11 gene
- Anomalies of the coronary arteries, autosomal dominant - genes LRP6, MEF2A
- Hereditary angiopathy with nephropathy and aneurysms - COL4A1 gene
- Bicuspid aorta and arterial tortuosity — EFEMP2, FBLN5, NOTCH1, SLC2A10 genes
- Ankirin B-associated cardiac arrhythmia - ANK2 gene
- Familial arrhythmia – 85 genes (ACTC1, NKX2-5, TTR…)
- Type IB progressive heart block - TRPM4 gene
- Congenital heart disease - 51 genes
- Atrial septal defect 3 - MYH6 gene
- Atrial septal defect type 2 - GATA4 gene
- Ventricular septal defect type 1 - GATA4 gene
- Septal defects - 14 genes (ACTC1, CITED2, CRELD1...)
