Once a diagnosis has been made, your cardiologist may recommend a procedure to achieve the best health outcome. Cabrini offers a wide range of cardiac procedures from minimally invasive procedures to heart surgery.

  • 3D-Mapping
  • Artery graft
  • Cardioversion
  • Catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation
  • Coronary angiogram
  • Coronary angioplasty
  • Coronary artery bypass surgery
  • Defibrillator insertion
  • Electrophysiology study (EPS)
  • Heart valve implantation and repair
  • Loop recorder insertion
  • MitraClip
  • Pacemaker insertion/replacement
  • Thoracic surgery (or cardiothoracic surgery)
  • Trans-catheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI)

Cardiac catheterisation labs are a critical part of an acute cardiac service. At Cabrini Malvern, our two versatile and purpose-built labs have sophisticated imaging systems central to minimally invasive cardiac and cardiovascular procedures. The systems are faster and more efficient than conventional models, so patients spend less time on the operating table.

Hybrid theatres, which are becoming more common in major hospitals around the world, match real time imaging with scans taken preoperatively. In Cabrini’s state-of-the-art hybrid theatres our specialists can pivot if needed from a minimally invasive operation to conventional heart surgery without moving the patient, as all staff and equipment are already in place.

Rehabilitation programs

Cabrini’s rehabilitation specialists help you to plan and achieve recovery goals that work best for you, your family and your lifestyle.

We identify opportunities to improve your physical, emotional and social wellbeing, providing education and support to help manage your heart condition. Cabrini rehabilitation programs help you get on with life.

Angiogram video

For greater patient convenience, if you are booked to have an angiogram, angioplasty, pacemaker or defibrillator insertion or an electrophysiology study, you will be admitted directly to the Cardiac Catheterisation Laboratory.

This video offers you a step-by-step guide of a standard Angiogram /Angioplasty procedure. You will be shown this video at Cabrini after the general admission process and prior to your procedure.
