Register for a potentially life-saving atrial fibrillation screening

TEXAS MEDICAL CENTER (September15, 2009)

 

Cardiac electrophysiology provides new hope in the treatment of arrhythmia


Electrophysiology is used to diagnose, treat and often cure heart rhythm abnormality, known as arrhythmia. It has also been shown to dramatically improve the quality of life for patients with heart failure. This innovative program is just one aspect of the cardiovascular care available at Memorial Hermann.

Arrhythmia may indicate a serious problem and lead to heart disease, stroke or sudden cardiac death. An arrhythmia can be silent and may not cause any symptoms. Register today for a potentially life-saving screening to look for atrial fibrillation, the most common type of arrhythmia, at Memorial Hermann Heart & Vascular Institute-Texas Medical Center. The cost for this test, combined with three other screenings for different heart and vascular conditions, is $139.

The complete package will screen for:

  • Atrial fibrillation (arrhythmia)
  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA)
  • Peripheral arterial disease (PAD)
  • Carotid artery disease

Screenings are available Sept. 15.

To schedule your appointment, call 1.800.690.0289.
