Cardiology of Wan Fang Hospital keeps up our persistent effort to improve the quality of our services, research and education. Our services include evaluation and treatment of coronary heart disease, hypertension, congestive heart failure, valvular disease, arrhythmia, dyslipidemia, congenital heart disease, ventricular septal defect or atrial septal defect, and aortic diseases such as dissection, stenosis. We specialize in coronary angioplasty and stenting, atrial Fibrillation/Ventricular tachycardia laser treatment, volume CT scan of heart, and etc. Additionally, we maintain excellent cooperation with other medical centers.
Regular services: outpatient services average 5800 patients per month. Cardiology ward averages 140 patients per month. ICU averages 30 patients per month. EKG averages 2600 patients per month, cardiac echo averages 750 person times per month, 24 hour Holter monitoring averages 280 persons per month, exercise stress test averages 180 person per month, transesophageal echo averages 15 persons per month, 24 hours blood pressure monitoring averages 10 person per month.
Special exam and treatment: our department in June 1998 began using cardiac catheterization for checkup. After seven years of development, we now average 1000 cases per year (2005). These included 678 cases of angiogram, 384 cases of PCI (including balloon dilation and stent placement), 54 cases of primary PCI, 18 cases of carotid endarterectomy. In 2005, there are 22 cases of electrical physiology studies and electric ablation (2006 increased to 40 cases), 48 cases of cardiac pacemakers placement. Cardiac angiogram, PCI, carotid endarterectomy, electrical physiology studies and electric ablation, cardiac pacemaker placement all require hospitalization for examination.
VCT: Since December, 2005, our hospital has introduced coronary virtual CT scan. Since then it has serviced 500 patients, pioneering as a noninvasive mean of detecting coronary artery disease. If patient is not fit for stress EKG nor nuclear medicine test, VCT should be considered as an alternative.
Cardiac Catheterization Room
Cardiac Catheterization Room is equipped with GE two-dimensional ventricular tachycardia system, which offers patients the examination of coronary artery disease. If severe stenosis is detected, we can immediately carry out balloon dilation and stent placement. Our department also has a complete set of Pruka electrical physiology equipment, which provides electrical and physiological examination and treatment. We also have temporary pacemakers, which can be implanted in case of emergency. Additionally, Cardiac Catheterization Room is equipped with one intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP).
Equipped with two HP500 echocardiographic systems, one HP2500 echocardiographic system, and one HP multiplane transesophageal echocardiographic system, all of which offer patients the prompt and clear imaging examination.
Provide examination of coronary artery disease
24-hour Holter monitor
24-hour Holter monitor EKG reading monitor, 24-hour Holter monitor recorder, 24-hour Holter monitor blood pressure recorder, all of which provide patients with recording of EKG and blood pressure.
