Cardiology is one of our main fields. Individual comprehensive approach of our experts to the treatment of each patient allows to slow the progression of cardiovascular disease, and as a result, reduces the risk of heart attack, stroke, and heart surgery in the future.
We select narrow field expert for treatment each specific type of heart disease that makes treatment the most effective and helps improve the quality of life of our patients. In many cases, treatment may include several specialists from different fields of cardiology.
Among the main problems of our patients are as follows:
⇒ Heart attack
⇒ Coarctation of the aorta
⇒ Anomalous pulmonary venous connection
⇒ Tetralogy of Fallot
Cardiac / heart tumors resection
Cardiac or heart tumor is an abnormal growth of tissue within the heart that can block blood flow, damage the valve, and increase the risk of stroke.
Any type of abnormal growth in the body can be malignant or benign. Malignant tumors grow rapidly and spread to other parts of the body, while benign tumors grow slowly and are often harmless, depending on the location.
Transposition of the great arteries
Transposition of the great arteries is a rare congenital heart defect in which the two main arteries (pulmonary artery and aorta) connected incorrectly – the aorta extends from the right ventricle and the pulmonary artery from the left ventricle.
Atrioventricular canal defect
Atrioventricular canal defect (endocardial cushion defect (ECD)) is an abnormal heart condition in which the walls separating all four chambers of the heart, formed incorrectly or entirely missing. This anomaly is a congenital heart defect.
Tricuspid atresia is a congenital heart defect in which the in tricuspid valve is not formed.
In such a condition blood can not flow through the heart into the lungs to be enriched with oxygen, as occurs during normal development. As a result, the lungs can not provide the baby with oxygen. Children with tricuspid atresia often have shortness of breath and bluish skin.
Persistent truncus arteriosus
Truncus arteriosus (a common arterial trunk, patent truncus arteriosus) is a rare congenital heart defect.
In the normal state, there are two separate vessel extending from the heart – the pulmonary artery and the aorta. If a child is born with this defect, the heart has a one common large blood vessel. In addition, the two lower chambers of the heart are missing part of the wall separating them (ventricular septal defect). As a result blood poor of oxygen which should flow to the lungs, and the oxygen-rich blood which must enter the body are mixed. This creates serious circulatory problems in the child.
Coarctation of the aorta
Coarctation of the aorta – a heart defect in which there is a narrowing of the lumen of the aorta in the region where the registered patent ductus arteriosus.
Coronary artery anomaly
Coronary artery anomaly (anomalous left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) or White-Garland syndrome, Bland-White-Garland syndrome – congenital heart disease, which is found mainly in infants in approximately 0.5% of all congenital heart defects.
Mitral valve insufficiency
Mitral insufficiency is a condition in which the mitral valve, which connects the left ventricle and left atrium, can not be closed tightly during contraction, causing a reverse flow of blood occurs in the left ventricle.
Pulmonary valve stenosis
Pulmonic stenosis is a condition when flow of blood from the heart to the lungs slowing down due to deformation of the pulmonary valve that controls the blood flow.
Aortic valve stenosis
Aortic stenosis (aortic valve stenosis) is the malfunction of the aortic valve due to its improper formation in the womb.
Patent ductus arteriosus
Patent ductus arteriosus (open arterial canal) – a congenital heart defect that occurs in connection with the closing of the artery wrapped around the pulmonary circulation.
Invective endocarditis is an inflammation of the inner lining of the heart, particularly the heart valves, resulting in an infection that usually caused by bacteria, but may also result from other pathogens (fungi).
Hypertension (or high blood pressure) is a chronic disease. The disease is sometimes called the “silent killer” because the person suffering from it often do not know about it.
Pericarditis is an inflammation of the pericardium (outer lining of the heart or heart sac).
Our cardiologists are leading Israeli experts in the treatment of heart problems.
Congenital heart disease
Congenital heart disease is the defect resulting from abnormal development of cardiac function.
Cardiomyopathy is a group of diseases associated with functional, mechanical or electrical problems which lead to ventricular hypertrophy or enhancement of cardiac muscle.
Atrial septal defect (ASD)
Atrial septal defect (ASD) is a common heart defect that occurs most often in women.
Ventricular septal defect (VSD)
Ventricular septal defect (VSD) is a congenital heart disease, which is a hole in the partition that separates the left ventricle from the right ventricle.
Heart valve replacement
Heart valves play a key role in the passage of blood through the heart. As the blood flows in one direction only, changing the pressure on both sides of the valve causes it to open at the right time to let blood, and then tightly closed to prevent the backflow of blood. Therefore, without a proper operation of the valves, a full human life becomes impossible.
Coronary heart disease (CHD)
Coronary heart disease (CHD) – a narrowing of the coronary arteries and blood vessels that supply blood to the heart muscle. Typically, this is due to the accumulation of plaque in the artery walls causing atherosclerosis. Plaques are made up of fatty deposits of cholesterol – rich collagen and other proteins.
Arrhythmia – is any deviation from the normal sequence of electrical impulses of the heart. While electrical impulses may occur too fast, too slow, or uneven – causing the heart to beat too fast, too slow or irregular. When the heart does not beat properly, it can not pump blood efficiently. When inefficient pumping of blood, lungs, brain and all other organs can not work properly, which could lead to breach of their functions.
