Ioannis Tzangiorgis, Cardiologist, Athens

The developments in the field of cardiology in recent decades have been leaps and bounds. New drugs were discovered, new methods of diagnosis and new ways of dealing with both interventional cardiology and cardiac surgery were implemented.

Increased awareness of doctors in the diagnosis of coronary artery disease. Early diagnosis and treatment systems for acute myocardial infarction and stroke were implemented.

However, the risk of developing cardiovascular disease remains high and in no case should we be complacent. 4.000.000 million Europeans die each year due to a cardiovascular event, and many more are forced to be hospitalized. In Greece the situation does not seem to be better. Although many have improved over the past decades, there is room for improvement, as epidemiological data shows that differences with Western European countries are significant.

We certainly should not forget the changes that have occurred in Greek society in the past decades. Removal from the traditional way of life and nutrition, sedentary life, not only to the people of the towns but also to those in the countryside, obsession with the destructive smoking habit, obesity.

But also the inappropriate exercise of preventive medicine. All of these are signs that the continuous reduction in cardiovascular events can be violently halted.

It is becoming increasingly clear that the next decade’s goal is prevention, by promoting a healthy lifestyle.

The cardiologist must be at the cutting edge of this effort. Naturally, the Internet should be used in this direction.

 

Cardiology Clinic, Athens

This is the ambitious goal I am trying to serve as part of the operation of my Cardiac Surgery Clinic in Athens. The new structure of the website adds another tool in this direction. Prevention has been and will remain the core subject of Medblog.

While the new section on systemic illnesses will try to illuminate some aspects of the approach from cardiological diseases that do not primarily affect the heart.

Services

Services offered at the cardiology clinicServices offered at the cardiology clinic

At the cardiology clinic, a full screen is performed, including clinical examination, electrocardiogram, echocardiogram, treadmill test.

Heart rate control is also performed with holter monitor (24 h and 48 h) as well as ambulatory blood pressure monitoring. It is possible to measure the ankle – brachial  index (ABI).

An effort is being made to identify and address the cardiovascular risk factors of each patient, both in primary and secondary prevention.

Regular monitoring of patients with chronic cardiac problems (arterial hypertension, dyslipidemia, coronary artery disease, atrial fibrillation, heart failure, valvular diseases …) is undertaken.

Adult and child prophylaxis is also undertaken, mainly in the framework of a thorough cardiac assessment.

There is a possibility of home visits and if necessary home care.
