Dr Turab Ali

Consultant Interventional Cardiologist

MBBS BSc MRCP


Specialises in

  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Hypertension

I work as a consultant cardiologist in NHS.

I deal with all aspects of General Cardiology (chest pain, shortness of breath, palpitations and blackouts). I also look after patients with heart failure, hypertension and all kinds of heart rhythm disturbances.

I also have a special interest in assessing patients for their fitness from cardiac point of view for non-cardiac surgery under general anaesthetic.

Additionally I also advise patients (and law firms) on the medico-legal aspects of the cardiology, and do expert witness reporting for court of laws.

I provide services for doing ECG, heart monitor, echocardiogram, exercise tolerance test, dobutamine stress echocardiogram, tilt table test, and interpretation the results and providing advice on cardiac CT scan and cardiac MRI scan. I also advise on primary / secondary prevention in cardiovascular disease (heart attack and stroke prevention).

I sub-specialise in interventional cardiology and have special expertise in medical treatment of chest pain / angina, and do both non-invasive as well as invasive assessment including doing coronary angiogram as part of investigations for chest pain / angina.

Additionally I am expert in all sorts of percutaneous coronary interventions (balloon angioplasty + stenting to coronary arteries as part of treatment for chest pain / angina / heart attack), intra-coronary imaging (IVUS /OCT), and pressure wire assessment.

I also do all kinds of complex precutaneous coronary procedures / angioplasties (including use of Rotablation / LASER for tough and calcified coronary lesions etc.), and make appropriate referrals for coronary artery bypass surgery.

 

I have done around 7300 percutaneous cardiac procedures including coronary angiograms, right heart catheterisations, grafts study, simple / complex angioplasties, intra-coronary imaging (IVUS, OCT), pressure wire assessment, Rotablations / LASER / cutting balloon, thrombectomy, myocardial biopsy, Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump insertion, temporary pacing wire, pericardiocentecis.

I am also a Primary PCI lead and MINAP lead for WUTH.

I also work as expert witness for medico-legal aspects of cardiology / interventional cardiology.
