Cardiology in Spain

High stress levels, poor eating habits and a lack of exercise in our modern lifestyles have led to an increase in heart-related illnesses. Cardiac surgery deals with all heart surgery as well as that related to the major blood vessels leading to the heart which are the pulmonary artery, the ascending aorta and the aortic arch. Whilst this may appear as quite a narrow area of specialisation, there are numerous procedures and cardiology treatments in Spain for each heart or vascular condition. There are many top level cardiology specialists in Spain and also heart hospitals with the best technology to treat these conditions.

The most common cardiovascular procedures undertaken in Spain for patients from abroad are:

  • Coronary artery by-pass
  • Aortic valve replacement
  • Mitral valve replacement
  • Percutaneous mitral valve repair
  • Double valve
  • Coronary angioplasty
  • Pacemaker implantation and replacement

Our cardiologists and angiologists also specialise in other procedures such as:

  • Varicose veins
  • Arteriovenous fistula
  • Pericarditis
  • Embolectomy
  • Popliteal aneurysm

Mention must also be made of Paediatric Cardiology which, as Dr Carrasco from the Nisa Hospital explains, “Congenital heart defects are disorders which are produced during the formation of the foetal heart and are one of the most frequent congenital defects present at birth as well as being ones with the most impact on a child’s life. Eight out of a thousand newborn babies are born with some form of congenital heart defect, with over half requiring treatment, whether it be cardiac catheterisation or some other type of heart surgery.”
