The scope of interventional procedures has increased to deal with complex multi-vessel coronary artery disease occlusions and for the past two years the Cath lab interventions have expanded to include the newcomer to cardiac interventions namely, the structural heart disease interventions to treat aortic and mitral valve diseases. This is a newly developed branch of interventional cardiology where treatment of defective valves which was usually treated by open heart surgery is now treated in the Cath lab which obviated the need for the conventional open-heart surgery and these interventions are gradually replacing open heart surgery. Those minimally invasive Cath lab interventions namely Aortic valve repair (TAVI) and Mitral valve repair have become routine in Dallah Cardiac center. All Electro physiology (EP) cardiac interventions to treat cardiac arrhythmias are routinely performed in our Cath lab.

Recently an up to-date top of the line new Cath lab was installed, it is fully equipped with the latest and most advanced digital technology that enables interventional cardiologists to perform complex cardiac interventions safely and efficiently. All cardiac imaging in Dallah Hospital are connected via the Cardiac Picture Achieving System (CPACS) to enable the care givers to view the cardiac images wherever they are. With this advancement and quality of work performed, the Saudi ministry of health (MOH) has accredited and licensed Dallah Hospital Cath lab. DHC group is very honored with this MOH recognition.

Dallah Cardiac center is supported by full armamentarium of diagnostic modalities. We have all the noninvasive cardiac imaging. Echo department where both conventional as well as TransEsophageal (TEE) echo are performed, we have Cardiac MRI, Cardiac CT, as well as nuclear cardiac imaging utilizing SPECTRA CT, the latest in nuclear cardiac imaging.

To ensure the highest quality of care, the cardiac department is supported by well-equipped emergency department to provide efficient and speedy service for acute cardiac conditions that needs immediate coronary interventions to maintain the door to balloon time to the lowest that comply with national and international standards. The center has a modern well equipped Coronary Care Unit (CCU) which is run by well trained staff. Cardiac rehabilitation is an integral part of cardiac services provided to ensure the continuum of care to our beloved patients throughout their journey from the moment they contact the hospital until their discharge and follow them up there after.
