DR Clelie VAN DER VYNCKT
A transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) is a non-invasive examination that allows you to observe your heart using a probe placed on the chest and emitting ultrasound. This examination is painless and poses no risk. It is essential for the diagnosis and monitoring of any heart disease. It is also indicated in the monitoring of certain treatments (in particular certain chemotherapies) or before certain surgical interventions.
The Argentine Medical Center has a state-of-the-art ultrasound scanner, offering quality imaging and possessing recent software for semi-automatic analysis of the heart in 3 dimensions and measurement of the deformation or “strain”.
A complete report of your cardiac ultrasound will be given to you at the end of the examination, including photos of your heart, the interpretation of the results and any recommendations for your treatment.
Since the echocardiography is a dynamic examination, you will also be given a DVD containing the videos of your heart, so that your doctor can view your entire examination.
Doctor Clélie Van der Vynckt can also receive you in cardiology consultation for a specialized opinion. An electrocardiogram (ECG) will be systematically carried out during the first consultation, then checked during the follow-up when your state of health requires it. The realization of an ECG is inseparable from a consultation, in order to guarantee the interpretation of the tracing by taking into account all the elements of your medical file.
Areas of expertise in cardiology:
- arterial hypertension;
- heart valve abnormalities (heart murmur);
- heart failure (shortness of breath);
- heart rhythm disturbances (palpitations);
- coronary artery disease (chest pain)...
A consultation report will be given to you for your attending physician.
Doctor Clélie Van der Vynckt only treats adult patients (over 18 years old).
