    HKSH’s Cardiology Centre offers the latest management of adult congenital and structural heart diseases (including valvular heart disease). We offer different imaging modalities, such as echocardiogram with 3D option, cardiac CT and MRI, which help diagnose different conditions and plan the corresponding interventional procedures.

    The interventions consist of transcatheter aortic valve implantation for aortic valve stenosis, percutaneous treatment for failing bioprosthesis (mitral, aortic or tricuspid position). The latest transcatheter valvular devices are used, and in order to decrease the procedural stroke risk, a cerebral protection device is adopted during the procedure. Other interventions include percutaneous valvular repair of severe mitral or tricuspid regurgitation, left atrial appendage occlusion for atrial fibrillation to replace the use of anticoagulants, and congenital heart interventions, e.g. device closure of atrial septal defect, ventricular septal defect, patent ductus arteriosus, patent foramen ovale, closure of paravalvular leak, etc. We are committed to providing optimal treatments for our patients.
