CARDIOLOGY

Cardiology is a large area of ​​internal medicine, called the queen of medicine, that deals with diseases of the cardiovascular system which is consisted of the heart and blood vessels. This area is of a special importance because of high rates of cardiovascular diseases of the modern era and the information that cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in modern man.

The attitude of official medicine, in the world and in our country, is that the greatest benefit in preserving human health can be achieved by measures of primary prevention of cardiovascular diseases. That is why the focus is on the application of regular and periodical medical examinations of the adult population, especially due to the fact that in high percent major risk factors of cardiovascular diseases are for a long time without the display of symptoms and often the first clinical expression of their existence and long-term non treatment are actually serious complications that are life-threatening, such as heart attack or stroke with or without fatal outcomes. Therefore, doctors call them 'silent killers'.
