KIMS Hospital Interventional Suite is a brand new, state-of-the-art cardiac cath lab. We use a General Electric Discovery 730 imaging system, one of only two systems in the UK and the only unit in the private healthcare sector.
The interventional imaging system can help patients avoid undergoing open surgery so day cases may return home on the same day after their treatment.
We have a highly trained, specialist team who are committed to provide the highest standards of care with the use of cutting-edge technology.
Our multidisciplinary team include consultant cardiologists, consultant anaesthetists, cardiac nurses, radiographers and cardiac physiologists.
Interventional Suite procedures
Our interventional suite and staff perform a full range of diagnostic procedures using the latest medical techniques and imaging technologies. These include:
- complex angioplasty procedures
- full range of pacing procedures
In particular, our sophisticated imaging technology can perform rotational angiography, which has dose saving features for radiation and contrast. This efficiency makes a range of procedures faster and safer for the patient.
Our diagnostic investigations can be performed in our non-invasive cardiac suite for both in and out patients.
Our non-invasive cardiology service includes:
- Transthoracic and transoesophageal echo
- Stress testing
- Implantable cardioverter/defibrillator
- Pacemaker interrogation
- Cardiac Computed Tomography (CT)
- Cardiac MRI
If you require any investigation that might relate to chest pain or have any heart rhythm problems, we have the versatile facilities and specialists to investigate your needs.
