Cardiology department

The Clínica Universidad de Navarra is a reference centre for different diagnostic techniques and coronary treatments.

We were the first European centre [SP]  to implant pacemakers using catheterization without the need to open up the chest to treat patients with severe heart failure.

The Cardiology Department at the Clínica collaborates with the Radiology [SP] and Cardiac Surgery [SP]  Departments to achieve a quick and precise diagnosis for the patient.

Furthermore, we have an Arrhythmias Unit specialised in diagnosis and treatment. This includes a system which is responsible for the remote control of defibrillators and pacemakers and sends information to the Clínica from the patients´ homes.

Additionally, the Interventional Haemodynamic and Cardiology Unit in the Cardiology Department is a reference centre for treatments relating to heart conditions.

We also carry out sports check-ups, a comprehensive and personalised examination of the cardiovascular system´s functionality and all organs used when practising a sport. 

Specialists from the Clínica performed a new technique of catheterization to resolve cardiac arrhythmias. [Video only available in Spanish]

The new catheterisation technique has the advantage of stopping the need for thrombi-prevention anticoagulants, with all the adverse effects that these drugs entail".

We have accumulated vast experience in the treatment of all cardiac diseases, some of which include:

We carry out diagnosis in a short space of time, with the most advanced techniques, so that the patient can start treatment as quickly as possible:

We carry out procedures such as percutaneous coronary angioplasty, percutaneous implantation of aortic valve prosthesis, percutaneous closure of foramen oval, percutaneous closure of atrial septal, closure of left atrial appendage and study of the vulnerable plaque.

We have the most advanced technology for diagnosis and treatment of coronary diseases: digitalised haemodynamic room, pressure guides, stents and intravascular MRI scan.

We offer effective and efficient personalised care to all our patients. We care for and treat both common and complex cases, without a waiting list for operations.

The Radiology Department [SP]  collaborates with Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery departments for quick and precise diagnoses.

New techniques have been developed using radiology and isotope studies. Radiological studies have been carried out using CT scans, MRI scans and Echocardiography. CT scans have been improved in both resolution and speed when creating 3D images.

Cardiac MRI scans or cardiac magnetic resonance is one of our most advanced and developed clinical approaches. This is used for: congenital cardiac pathologies, blood vessel diseases, coronary disease, cardiomyopathies, cardiac transplants, pericardial disease, cardiac masses and valve diseases.

The services offered by the Cardiac Imaging Unit for cardiac magnetic resonance includes complex congenital cardiac pathology evaluation, ischemic cardiac pathology (myocardial viability studies with, myocardial perfusion with pharmacologic stress testing), cardiomyopathies, valve diseases and pericardium, aortic and large blood vessel pathologies.

Furthermore, in accordance with the regulations for informed consent and the approval of the Clínica´s Code of Ethics, the Cardiac Imaging Unit actively participates in the European Register for cardiac magnetic resonance.

Multislice CT scans study the anatomy and function of the heart with high resolution images. The clinical recommendations for the use of test are: detection of coronary diseases, acute chest pain, study of cardiac structure and function, evaluation of intra and extra cardiac structures and examination of a stent´s permeability.

After my aortic valve replacement, I had a spectacular recovery. From that moment on, my life changed completely".
