3D Mapping for Cardiac Arrhythmias
With this technology, cardiologists who specialize in the treatment of irregular heartbeats (electrophysiologists) can now visualize the heart in 3D. This, in turn, enhances the physician’s ability to maneuver a catheter throughout the heart and increases control over its placement in specific locations.
The Aortic Center provides immediate and 24-7 assistance to local hospitals and physicians for the rapid diagnosis and treatment of aortic emergencies. Patients with acute aortic syndrome represent some of the most serious and lethal problems that may be seen in an ED or physician office. The syndrome refers to a spectrum of life-threatening aortic emergencies including rupturing aneurysms, aortic dissections, and penetrating aortic ulcers. Because these conditions can have a mortality rate of 40 percent or higher if not diagnosed and treated appropriately in 24 hours, rapid assessment and intervention by experienced surgeons is essential and life saving. The Aortic Center provides specialized capabilities and support services that are unique in Palm Beach County. Its team of surgeons has performed over 2000 aortic surgical procedures, making it one of the most experienced programs in Florida.
