Heart conditions and treatments

We investigate and treat the three broad types of heart disease and abnormalities 

These are: 

  • electrical – palpitations, including both fast and slow heart rates 
  • structural – heart failure, leaking valves, heart murmurs or holes in the heart (ASD) 
  • plumbing (coronary) – blockages in the arteries and vessels; chest pains, angina or shortness of breath, limiting oxygen flow

We also treat a range of other conditions including:

  • syncope (fainting, blackouts or dizziness)
  • high cholesterol
  • high blood pressure

We provide the spectrum of non-invasive investigations and services, as well as key-hole cardiac surgical procedures. These include: 

  • angioplasty (balloon and stenting to widen narrow arteries) 
  • cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) 
  • closure of holes in the heart 
  • computer tomography (CT) coronary angiogram 
  • coronary angiography 
  • echocardiography – 2D and 3D transthoracic and transoesophageal 
  • electrocardiograms (ECG), 24 hour Holter monitors, exercise treadmill testing 
  • electrophysiology procedures, including ablations for supraventricular (SVT) and ventricular tachycardia (VT) 
  • pacing, including implantation of simple and complex pacemakers and implantable cardiac defibrillations 
  • investigation and management of pre-syncope (fainting or blackouts), syncope and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (PoTS) including tilt table testing 
  • TAVI (minimally invasive aortic valve replacement)
