58 Harley Street provides screening for coronary artery diseases and heart conditions such as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, myocarditis, tachycardia, and sudden death syndrome for sports men and woman and individuals planning to engage in sporting activities, with a view to reduce the frequency of sport related sudden cardiac death.
Diagnosis and treatment of heart disease at 58 Harley Street
Coronary artery diseases is the single biggest killer in the UK leading to around 125,000 deaths per year. Athletes have died unexpectedly from heart disease during training and competition. The cause of these sudden cardiac deaths is an underlying cardiac condition. Athletes can undergo a relatively simple screening process to identify and treat the conditions that can cause sudden death and therefore reduce or eliminate the problem.
Experts believe that between 4 and 8 apparently fit and healthy young people die each week as a result of sudden cardiac death or undetected cardiac abnormalities, many of them during or immediately after physical activity. Any athlete who has an undetected cardiac abnormality is at risk.
Located in Harley Street, London, the cardiac screening premises have all the facilities of a modern clinic, in a quiet and relaxed environment. Call their advice line on 0207 323 9292 to discuss your requirements and to help you choose the most suitable cardiac diagnostic test for you.

Restrictive Cardiomyopathy (RCM)
Prevention of Sudden Death
Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and chest pain
Idiopathic Ventricular Fibrillation
Coronary Artery Anomalies (CAAs)
It is proven that the early identification and management of cardiac events such as coronary artery disease reduce the likelihood of their developing into serious life threatening conditions. The main purpose of cardiac medical checkups is to break down known risk factors of potential illness, create or improve self awareness of health and fitness and provide referral to the adequate treatment when necessary.
Heart tests with reports
There is a simple way to diagnose most of the abnormalities that can lead to cardiac conditions such as chest pain (exercise related), breathlessness, palpitations,dizziness and fainting. This is by having an ECG (electrocardiogram) test. The test is quick, painless and affordable.
For extra clarity an echocardiogram (ultrasound scan of the heart) is also suggested.
If further investigation is necessary there are a number of highly reliable tests that should provide accurate diagnosis of any possible heart conditions (list below). Our expert cardiologists will discuss with you the course of investigation for your individual case.
