Structural Cardiology Dubai | Structural Heart Disease Dubai
Appointment

Structural Cardiology involves the diagnosis and treatment of structural abnormalities of the heart and its associated blood vessels. These abnormalities can be present at birth (congenital) or acquired due to various factors, including age, disease, or previous cardiac procedures. The field has seen significant advancements in minimally invasive techniques, transforming how cardiac conditions are managed. At CMC Hospital Dubai, our cardiology team are experts in conducting such procedures

Structured Cardiology

Key Procedures in Structural Cardiology include:

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)

This minimally invasive procedure involves replacing a damaged aortic valve with a bioprosthetic valve through a catheter, typically inserted via the femoral artery.

Transcatheter Mitral Valve Repair/Replacement

Similar to TAVR, this procedure repairs or replaces the mitral valve using catheter-based techniques, reducing the need for open-heart surgery.

Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) and Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO) Closure

These are procedures to close abnormal openings (ASD or PFO) in the heart’s septum, often done using devices delivered through a catheter.

Left Atrial Appendage Closure (LAAC)

Used to prevent stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation, this procedure closes the left atrial appendage to reduce the risk of blood clots.

Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI)

While not specific to structural cardiology, PCI is often included, involving stent placement or angioplasty to treat narrowed or blocked coronary arteries.

These procedures offer less invasive alternatives to traditional surgeries, reducing recovery times and improving outcomes for patients with structural heart conditions

FAQ's

Structural cardiologists manage conditions like atrial septal defects (ASDs), ventricular septal defects (VSDs), aortic stenosis, mitral regurgitation, and patent foramen ovale (PFO), among others.

Treatments may include minimally invasive procedures like transcatheter valve replacements, septal defect closures, and left atrial appendage occlusions, as well as surgical interventions when necessary.

If you have symptoms like shortness of breath, chest pain, or palpitations, or if you've been diagnosed with a heart condition, consult with a cardiologist who can determine if a structural cardiologist's expertise is required.
