For children with various congenital heart problems and acquired heart disorders, KidsHeart has a specialised department called cardiologist in Abu Dhabi. From the time they are a few hours old to the age of 18, we treat children.
You may be sure that your child’s cardiac issue will be accurately diagnosed and treated using cutting-edge diagnostic tools and therapeutic methods.
Foetal echocardiography is a painstakingly detailed ultrasound of the foetus while it is still inside the mother to diagnose any cardiac issues before giving birth to your child. Foetal echocardiogram aids in evaluating:
the foetal heart’s anatomy
heart functions in utero
Foetal heart pain
Knowing your fetus’s heart is essential so that we may better plan for post-natal care and prevent complications brought on by congenital heart defects after birth.
It is best to perform this test 16 weeks into the pregnancy.

Trans-esophageal and trans-thoracic echocardiography
Transthoracic Echo (TTE) is used by our highly trained Paediatric Cardiologists in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Al Ain to identify structural abnormalities in patients with arrhythmia, murmurs, hypertension, high cholesterol, heart failure, obesity, and syncope.
Trans-oesophagal echo is another method that aids in the diagnosis. To obtain a clearer image of a patient’s heart, a microcamera is implanted and pointed in the oesophagus or stomach. The treatment is typically carried out while sedated.
invasive echocardiography of the heart
The intra-cardiac echo is the most sophisticated type of heart ultrasonography procedure. The heart chambers are immediately accessed by a catheter with a microcamera that is put into a vein. Typically, this is carried out during cardiac catheterization operations that are interventional.
An electrocardiogram (ECG), often known as an EKG, is a quick and painless diagnostic for the heart that analyses electrical activity and looks for abnormalities. It essentially depicts the electrical activity of the cardiac muscles graphically. We have the most cutting-edge computerised ECG technology available.
Cardiac monitoring and the Holter ECG
A Holter is an attachment worn over a child’s chest for 24 or 48 hours and is an external monitoring device for short-term recording of heart rhythm. Wireless event monitors are also available for recording ECG at any time as needed.
Programming for Pacemakers
The pacemaker is introduced and configured using a sophisticated computer to modify its settings and parameters as necessary to manage the arrhythmia problem.
The exercise stress test, which is often performed on a treadmill while you’re connected to an electrocardiogram (EKG) equipment, is used to assess how well your heart responds when it’s working its hardest. This enables the physician to keep an eye on your heart rate and is performed on patients who have been exhibiting chest pains or other coronary heart disease (also known as coronary artery disease) symptoms. It may also be used to assess your level of health.
Cardiac Interventional Catheterization
ICC is a highly specialised method that treats paediatric cardiac abnormalities without surgery by using catheters and other specialised tools. At our associated hospitals, Dr. Anas Abu Hazeem, our specialist paediatric cardiology in Abu Dhabi, performs ICC with accuracy and deftness.
An MRI of the heart gives 3D images with information about the state of the heart chambers in real-time, which can be used to aid in diagnosis and direct therapy. Our MRI expert, Dr. Mohamed Sulaiman, performs cardiac MRIs in partner hospitals to direct the management of inherited or acquired heart conditions. Call us at this time to make an appointment.
