The Catheterization Laboratory of “Helsicore” is equipped with the latest equipment and has been operating since the opening of the clinic. Under the supervision of Dr. Irakli Gogorishvili, more than 1500 procedures are conducted annually, mostly coronary interventions, only using latest generation stents of advanced companies.
Catheterization laboratory is equipped with latest apparatus: “Toshiba” Medical’s Angiography Systems and “Philips” mobile device / additional equipment help enhance Interventional Procedures and allows not only routine cardiovascular procedures, but hybrid (surgical-interventional) operations to be conducted. Most of the procedures are coronary interventions, although there are many electrophysiological procedures and vascular studies.
Nowadays, our statistic does not fall from advanced western medical centers.
Two Interventional cardiologists, one electrophysiologist and several vascular surgeons work in a Catheterization Lab.
We try to work according to the latest achievements of the world: only latest generation drug-eluting, absorbable and polymeric stents are used in coronal interventions. The most difficult electrophysiologic implantable devices of advanced firms are routinely used in our clinic.
At present negotiations are being held for implanting transcatheter aortic valve first in Caucasus. The Catheterization Laboratory is closely integrated with other departments of the clinic and thanks to this cooperation “Helsicore” achieves the success.
