What is cardiology?

 

Cardiology is the medical specialisation which examines and treats the heart and its associated conditions. Cardiology also covers vascular conditions. Specialists in the field are called cardiologists.

 

 

What pathologies does the department cover?

 

Hôpital Foch has its own cardiology department. It provides general, or "territorial", treatment.
Hôpital Foch's cardiologists receive all patients that come to the hospital, either by way of the A&E ward or by appointment, presenting cardiovascular symptoms.
The department proposes two types of cardiovascular condition consultation:

 

  • surgical cardiology (coronary catheterization and angioplasty)
  • non-invasive cardiovascular explorations and consultations:

 

  • Trans-thoracic, oesophageal, stress and Dobutamine ultrasound scans;
  • Cardiac stress test,
  • Holter,
  • Heart MRI (morphology and stress MRI)
