Cardiology

Cardiology procedures

The Golden Jubilee’s Cardiology team perform a variety of planned and urgent diagnostic and interventional procedures.

 

 Complex Heart Rhythm Devices (Pacemakers)

Complex heart rhythm devices help to keep the heart beating effectively by synchronising the timing of the heart contractions and correcting any potentially-dangerous fast heart rhythms.

These procedures are generally performed in our theatre area, under local anaesthetic and sedation, but may be performed under general anaesthesia if it is clinically appropriate to do so.

Patients are admitted into our Cardiology Ward 2C and generally stay overnight following the procedure before discharge the next day.

 Coronary Angiography

Coronary angiography is carried out to obtain further information about your heart and particularly your heart arteries.

 Electrophysiology

An electrophysiology study aims to analyse the function of the heart’s electrical system, and to diagnose abnormal heart rhythms.

It is used to determine the cause of abnormal heart rhythms and treatments.
