Cardiology (Meridien)

Pro santé

Our department is comprised of 13 cardiologists trained in complementary specialisations:

  • general cardiology,
  • acute cardiology,
  • interventional cardiology,
  • cardiac rhythm study,
  • interventional cardiac rhythm study,
  • cardiac imaging,
  • preventive cardiology,
  • sports cardiology,
  • cardiac rehabilitation.

Our team provides round-the-clock management of cardiac conditions, from prevention to treatment:

  • primary and secondary prevention,
  • high blood pressure,
  • high cholesterol,
  • heart failure,
  • coronary artery disease and myocardial infarction,
  • cardiac rhythm disorders,
  • cardiac valve diseases,
  • congenital conditions (atrial septal and ventricular septal defect, patent foramen ovale, bicuspid aortic valve).


The in-patient unit comprises 32 beds, including 5 active beds (Middle care or CCU). The CCU is the section of the in-patient unit specifically used for patients who:

  • suffer from acute cardiac problems: acute coronary syndrome, acute heart failure,
  • have undergone coronary angioplasty, heart surgery, aortic valvoplasty, or had a pacemaker or defibrillator fitted.

The medical imaging unit team is made up of 4 cardiologists, 1 radiologist, 1 cardiac rhythm specialist and 1 nuclear medicine specialist. Through synergistic collaboration, they research and diagnose all coronary problems.

The following tests are performed at the unit:

  • transthoracic echocardiography,
  • transœsophageal echocardiography,
  • drug-induced stress echocardiography,
  • stress echocardiography,
  • paediatric ultrasound,
  • two-dimensional strain imaging by echocardiography,
  • contrast echocardiography,
  • three-dimensional intracardiac echocardiography,
  • evaluation of ventricular dyssynchrony,
  • coronary CT scan,
  • stress and drug-induced stress myocardial scintigraphy.

The cardiac rhythm testing unit is made up of 4 cardiac rhythm specialists who diagnose and treat all cardiac rhythm disorders.

Tests performed:

  • electrophysiological investigation,
  • ablation of ventricular and supraventricular arrhythmia, including ablation of atrial fibrillation,
  • 1 to 7-day Holter cardiac rhythm monitoring,
  • cardiac monitoring by implantable ECG (Reveal),
  • implantation and monitoring of internal pacemakers and defibrillators.

The cardiology department is a division of the Brussels Heart Center, a cardiology-based medical and surgical association, and forms part of the Heart Clinic network.
