作为心脏创新领域的领导者, Saint Francis 心医院 is proud to offer an array of treatments and procedures, 从微创到复杂护理.
心脏病学的一个分支, electrophysiology is the study and treatment of irregular heartbeats, 也被称为心律失常. Electrophysiologists examine the heart’s electrical system using various techniques and determine how to re-regulate a patient’s heart rate and rhythm.
Common arrhythmias include atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter. Electrophysiologists can treat patients with tachycardias (fast heart rhythms) and bradycardias (slow heart rhythms).
When the aortic valve becomes highly diseased or blocked, a valve replacement is needed. 作为开胸手术的替代方案， 经导管主动脉瓣置换术 is a minimally invasive procedure allowing surgeons to implant an artificial aortic valve into the heart. TAVR allows for significantly shorter hospital stays and quicker recovery times.
When the mitral valve becomes leaky, it may need to be repaired or replaced. If the patient is not a candidate for heart surgery, a 经导管二尖瓣修复术 也许是个不错的选择. This minimally invasive procedure allows surgeons to reduce the leak by placing a MitraClip along with the mitral valve. TMVR patients experience quicker recovery times and reduced hospital stays.
For patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation, the minimally invasive 守望™ procedure provides a reduced risk of stroke without the dangers associated with taking anti-coagulate medication (blood thinners). The 守望™ device is implanted in the left atrial appendage and helps reduce the formation of blood clots, 最终降低中风风险.
心脏起搏器 are devices that keep the heart from beating too slowly. These devices are implanted in the chest and monitor the heart’s rhythm. 如果心跳过慢(心动过缓), the pacemaker will send small electrical signals to the heart to make it beat at a more stable pace.
