Dr. Zidar employs state-of-the-art diagnostic techniques to accurately assess heart conditions and provide an in-depth evaluation of his patients' cardiac health. These include:
- Electrocardiogram (ECG) - A test that records the electrical activity of the heart, helping identify irregular heart rhythms and other abnormalities.
- Echocardiogram - Utilizing sound waves, this non-invasive test creates a detailed image of the heart's structure and function.
- Cardiac Stress Test - Evaluates the heart's performance during physical exertion to detect any underlying issues.
- Cardiac Catheterization - A diagnostic procedure that involves inserting a catheter into the heart's blood vessels to evaluate blood flow and detect blockages.
2. Interventional Procedures
Dr. Zidar specializes in performing various interventional procedures to treat heart conditions. These minimally invasive techniques offer patients a faster recovery time and reduced risk compared to traditional open-heart surgery. Some of the interventional procedures he offers include:
- Coronary Angioplasty and Stenting - A procedure used to widen narrowed or blocked coronary arteries and improve blood flow to the heart.
- Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) - A minimally invasive procedure that replaces a diseased aortic valve with a new valve, without the need for open-heart surgery.
- Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) - Involves inserting a catheter to open blocked coronary arteries using a balloon or stent.
- Intravascular Ultrasound (IVUS) - A specialized imaging technique that provides detailed images of blood vessels, aiding in the assessment and treatment of cardiovascular diseases.
