Experts at Near East Hospital Cardiology centre care for patients with a wide range of
complex cardiac conditions, including congenital (present at birth), inherited and acquired
later in life.
We have an outpatient clinic with echocardiography room, exercise test area, holter
monitoring equipment. For inpatients the ward consists of single rooms and also, we have
suits for patients who would like more private space. We have a fully equipped intensive
care unit and cardiac catheter laboratory. A variety of procedures is undertaken within the
department. These range from diagnostic X-rays (angiograms), revascularisation
interventions (PTI), to insertion of permanent pacemakers and internal defibrillators or

expertise. Temporary and permanent mechanical support devices are always ready for use
in critical patients and also high-risk interventions. Transthoracic echocardiography,

echocardiography, interventional echocardiography, coronary CT angiogram, cardiac
