Details of each service are provided below:

  1. Heart Disease Diagnosis and Cardiac Tests
    • Exercise stress test
    • Echocardiogram (transthoracic and transesophageal)
    • Cardiac computerized tomography (CT) scan
    • Portable ECG monitoring for 24-72 hours (Holter monitor)
    • Coronary angiogram
    • Peripheral artery disease test (Ankle-Brachial Index Test)
  2. Treatment of Coronary Artery Disease using Balloon Angioplasty and Stenting (PCI). Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) using balloon angioplasty and stenting can be performed 24 hours a day. The catheter can be introduced through the radial artery (transradial access via the wrist) or through the femoral artery (transfemoral access via the groin).
  3. Cardiothoracic (Heart and Vascular) Surgery and Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG)
    • Diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery disease, including Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG), available in two different approaches:
      • Traditional CABG or “On-Pump” CABG, where the heart is stopped during surgery
      • “Off-Pump” CABG (OP-CABG) or Beating Heart CABG (BH-CABG), where the heart remains beating during surgery
    • Diagnosis and treatment of heart valve disease that requires heart valve repair or replacement surgery.
      • Heart valve replacement or repair
      • Thoracic aortic aneurysm and dissection repair
    • Diagnosis and treatment for aortic disease. Abdominal aortic aneurysms can be treated using one of two methods:
      • Open Repair Surgery
      • Endovascular Aneurysm Repair (EVAR), which is minimally invasive
  4. Arrhythmia Treatments: Arrhythmia is a very common condition, and the diagnosis of its symptoms can be prompt and accurate, leading to the correct treatment and an improvement in quality of life.
  5. Cardiac Rehabilitation: Cardiac rehabilitation and health promotion is a program that supports the physical, mental, and emotional rehabilitation of patients with heart problems. The cardiac rehabilitation program consists of a doctor's assessment, conducted prior to the start of the program, as well as exercise and stress reduction counseling, to help the patient return to normal life.
  6. Cardiometabolic clinic: Our cardiovascular disease prevention clinic at Bangkok Hospital Khon Kaen provides a multidisciplinary approach to heart health services and identification of risk factors for coronary heart disease. Our goal is to comprehensively evaluate a patient’s risk and to provide the most effective measures to slow or stop the progression of atherosclerosis with both primary and secondary prevention. Individualized action plans are developed to determine the optimal approach for each patient, which include lifestyle interventions and, when necessary, medications. Our services are available for all age groups.
