Do I need heart tests?

Coronary heart disease (CHD), where fatty deposits build up in the arteries of the heart, is the leading cause of death in UK.  Other commonly seen problems are those affecting the rhythm of the heart (cardiac arrhythmias) and narrowing and leaking of the heart valves.  As heart disease is often symptomless, it is advisable to have regular check ups with a GP, who will refer anyone they feel is at risk.  The following symptoms should always be investigated:

  • Chest pain
  • Being out of breath
  • Swelling of the feet and ankles
  • Being unusually tired
  • Palpitations, dizziness and fainting

Expert treatment of heart conditions

The highly experienced cardiologists and cardiac surgeons at Spire Healthcare are able to offer a number of procedures to treat heart disease that do not require major heart surgery:

Coronary angioplasty

Coronary angioplasty is a minimally invasive procedure whereby a mesh tube (stent) is inserted into a coronary artery through a flexible tube (catheter), squashing down the fatty deposits and allowing blood to flow freely once more.  Taking around 30 minutes, it is a safe, effective and very commonly performed treatment for coronary heart disease.

Pacemaker implantation

A pacemaker is a small battery-operated device that keeps the heart beating regularly.  It is usually inserted under local anaesthetic through a small incision near the collarbone and then guided through a blood vessel to the heart.  It is used in patients who have abnormally slow heart rates (brachycardia), abnormally fast heart rates (tachycardia) or heart block.

Cardioversion and ablation of arrhythmia

Cardioversion and ablation of arrythmia are both treatments to restore a normal rhythm to the heart.
