Interventional Cardiology

stent or catheter used in surgeries in medical center Sharjah

The University Hospital of Sharjah takes pride in having dexterous Interventional Cardiologists from Sharjah region. Our Cardiologists have an experience of more than 25 years in Interventional Cardiology and have been leading the primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in acute myocardial infarction. Some of our Interventional Cardiologists have been the first in their own right to institute the 24/7 service for interventional management of acute myocardial infarction.

Renal Denervation (RDN) is a minimally invasive procedure to treat patients suffering from resistant hypertension. Nerves in the walls of the renal artery is burned without damaging the arteries, using radiofrequency energy. 

Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) is a non-invasive method that uses a catheter(a thin flexible tube) combined with a small wire mesh tube called a stent that is inserted in a blocked blood vessel to help widen it and improve blood flow to the heart. The stent helps to keep the artery open, decreasing its chance of narrowing again. 

It is the process of implanting cardiac resynchronization therapy devices to improve the heart’s ability to pump blood and oxygen. The device monitors the heart's rhythm, detects irregularities and corrects them with electrical impulses to both the lower chambers, to help them beat together in a more synchronized pattern.

This procedure is commonly performed on blood vessels in the heart, abdomen, and legs. As one might expect, these interventional techniques are complex procedures, involving teams of nurses, doctors, and radiographers working together. 

Angioplasty combined with stent placement is one of the most common treatment modalities for heart disease in recent years. Complex coronary angioplasty is indicated for patients who have undergone coronary artery bypass surgery. Angioplasty is a medical procedure used to dilate the narrowed arteries supplying blood to the heart.

Also known as heart attack, it occurs when one of the heart's coronary arteries is blocked or the blood flow to the heart is stopped suddenly.  Each coronary artery supplies blood that is rich in oxygen and nutrients to a specific part of the heart's muscular wall.
