Heart Procedures Beverly Hills
Each year, thousands of heart surgeries are performed in the United States. According to the United Network for Organ Sharing, over 2,300 patients had heart transplants in 2010. Heart procedures have come a long way over the last few decades, and the majority have very high success rates.
The heart procedures at Beverly Hills Cardiology range from minimally invasive to traditional open heart surgery. These procedures may be used to help treat or diagnose a heart condition.
Diagnostic tests can tell us if you have heart disease, or show us if your disease is progressing. In many cases, these tests create pictures of your heart, which we will interpret for you so you understand exactly what the picture shows. Procedures are also used to treat a heart condition, or to help alleviate issues caused by a heart condition.
Heart Procedures with Beverly Hill Cardiology
The type of procedure performed will depend on your condition and the urgency of treatment. We will select a procedure based on your current health condition. While some are minimally invasive and performed on an outpatient basis, others require surgery and can be quite complex. We will discuss all of your options to help find the right solution for you.
We are committed to achieving the best possible outcome for our patients and strive to provide long-term support for both our patients and their families.
Abdominal Aorta Ultrasound
A one hour ultra sound used to determine if patients suffer from arterial disease. Often found within the abdomen, an aorta ultrasound will be able to determine if the disease is present before any serious complications occur.
Utilizing two techniques, we are able to evaluate the blood flow seen in the arteries of your legs.
Cardiology Consultation & Evaluation
Testing of the heart. We provide a complete consultation and evaluation by Dr. Eshaghian. Diagnostic testing and a further review of your condition is provided.
One of the main reasons for a stroke. Carotid arteries are best examined through the use of our quick, one hour ultrasound of the carotid arteries in the neck.
CT Coronary Angiography
A complete, 64 slice scan that produces an accurate three-dimensional model of your arteries, veins and the heart. The leading cause of death in America, a CT Coronary Angiography will quickly produce images of your heart to precisely determine the extent of heart disease.
Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG)
Your Los Angeles cardiologist offers the latest in heart tracing. An EKG can be used to measure the rate and rhythm of the heart and is a great way to evaluate a patient before surgery. Our testing takes less than 5 minutes in most cases.
Whether you need a second opinion or you want to have your heart evaluated, Dr. Eshaghian can provide you with a thorough evaluation of your heart and arteries.
Exercise Nuclear Perfusion Imaging
An in-depth test to image the heart and blood supply. Patients are asked to use a treadmill while a radioactive substance is injected into the blood to follow the flow of your blood. This is a very accurate stress test that takes 3 – 4 hours.
Staying healthy while having heart disease starts with preventative measures. A flu vaccination is the first step to preparing for yearly illnesses that can be fatal to those with heart disease.
Holter & Event Monitor
Advanced monitoring of the heart. This device is used to record a patient’s heart rhythm over the course of weeks or months to determine any irregularities.
Laboratory Blood Testing
Leading the way for Los Angeles cardiologists, we perform a wide array of blood testing right in our offices to provide the quickest results.
Pharmacologic Exercise Nuclear Perfusion Imaging (Adenosine)
When patients are too weak to perform exercise, Adenosine can be administered to be able to mimic a treadmill stress test.
Testing and evaluation of a patient’s heart. Using preventative measures, we will be able to reduce the chance of heart disease, or lower complications of heart disease when caught early on.
Stress testing is used to determine heart health through imaging. We offer an array of stress testing options utilizing advanced images as well as alternatives when a patient is too weak to perform a standard treadmill test.
Tilt Table Examination
Often used when fainting occurs. A tilt table will be used to measure blood flow, pressure and patterns in different positions.
Trans-Esophageal Echocardiography (TEE)
An alternative to heart imaging. A TEE will place a camera probe into the esophagus to create an image of the patient’s heart.
Used during an EKG or during a stress test. Treadmill exercise is used within our office to determine the blood flow into your arteries typically using imaging.
Examination of the arteries found within the neck can often provide a clear picture of your heart health and condition. Plaque within the arteries of the neck often lead to stroke and can be determined using a vascular ultrasound.
Venous Duplex Ultrasound
An hour long procedure that takes place right in our Los Angeles cardiology office. A Venous Duplex ultrasound penetrates deep into the legs to find blood clots or restricted blood flow. This ultrasound often leads to immediate treatment using blood thinners.
