Atrial fibrillation is the most common abnormal heart rhythm. It would not be an exaggeration to say that it is currently an issue of pandemic proportions in western world. In our country, it is estimated that there are about 200,000 people suffering from this condition, which unfortunately imposes risks on morbidity and mortality. Scientific progress over the last years has contributed to the effective management of risk, but not of the particularly troublesome symptoms.
The Athens Bioclinic has established a centre equipped with the latest medical equipment for the diagnosis and treatment of abnormal heart rhythm. Managing patients in the setting of a specialised centre fully equipped with diagnostic and therapeutic tools can give solutions to problems that up until a few years ago remained unsolvable.
We firmly believe that provision of proper information is the primary determinant of proper management. The patient has the right to know the indications, the pros and cons of any medication or surgery, as well as the cost and the risks of no intervention.
The clinic of atrial fibrillation & cardiac arrhythmias operates within the Department of arrhythmias of the Bioclinic under the supervision of Dr P. Ioannidis and a team of experienced cardiologists and electrophysiologist experts.
Please select a hospital to find out more about the respective arrhythmia department.
