Cardiology consultation is typically recommended when you start to experience symptoms such as shortness of breath, chest pain, numbness of the legs and arms, or pain in different parts of the body. The purpose of the consultation is to determine if you’re suffering from a heart disease. During the consultation, Dr. Charles Chan will review your medical history as well as your lifestyle. He will then perform diagnostic tests and order laboratory tests based on the symptoms that you’re having. Once he makes the diagnosis, treatment or management plan will be carefully formulated.

Coronary arteries that have narrowed or are blocked due to a buildup of plaque can be widened through a minimally invasive procedure called coronary angioplasty and stenting. The procedure restores the normal blood flow to the heart thereby preventing further damage. In a coronary angioplasty, the patient is first given sedatives through an intravenous line. The surgeon will then create a small incision in the arm or leg so that guide wires and a catheter can be inserted in the artery. The guide wire is led to the blocked portion of the coronary artery and a small balloon at the tip is inflated to widen the artery. A wire mesh called a stent is implanted to prevent the artery from collapsing. Once the stent has been implanted, the guide wire and catheter are removed and the incision closed.

The aortic and mitral valves located on the left side of the heart are responsible for pumping blood in one direction. In some cases, the valves do not fully open and need to be repaired. Repairing the valves can be through an open-heart surgery or a minimally invasive surgical procedure called balloon valvuloplasty. The advantage of this procedure is it removes the symptoms of a heart valve disease. Unfortunately, it does not provide a cure. The procedure involves inserting a catheter through the blood vessels directly to the aortic and mitral valves. A balloon at the tip of the catheter is inflated forcing the opening of the valves to widen. The patient will usually need to stay in the hospital overnight for observation.
