Cardiac cath is a procedure to examine how well your heart is working. A thin, hollow tube called a catheter is inserted into a large blood vessel that leads to your heart.
Coronary angiography is a test that uses dye and special x rays to show the insides of your coronary arteries. A waxy substance called plaque can build up inside the coronary arteries.
A coronary angioplasty is a procedure used to widen blocked or narrowed coronary arteries. The term 'angioplasty' means using a balloon to stretch open a narrowed or blocked artery.
A heart attack occurs when the blood flow that brings oxygen to the heart muscle is severely reduced or cut off completely, meanwhile your heart muscle needs oxygen to survive.
Rotational atherectomy involves inserting a small drill into the coronary arteries to grind up plaque and increase blood flow to the blood vessel.
A minimally invasive high effective endovascular technique for removing atherosclerosis from blood vessels within the body.
A pacemaker is a small device which use low-energy electrical pulses to help control abnormal rhythms. It is placed in the chest or abdomen.
Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) are useful in preventing sudden death in patients with known, sustained ventricular tachycardia or fibrillation.
Carotid artery stenting (CAS) is an endovascular procedure where a stent is deployed within the lumen of the carotid artery to prevent a stroke.
Peripheral Vascular Angiography is an invasive diagnostic test using a catheter to inject dye into peripheral arteries.
Peripheral Vessels or Renal Angioplasty is a procedure to open narrowed or blocked blood vessels that supply blood to your legs.
Reclosure (restenosis) of the artery is less likely to occur if a stent is used. Stents are less commonly used in small leg arteries as the femoral, popliteal, or tibial arteries.
A minimally invasive procedure to repair severe mitral valve regurgitation by clipping together the valve's leaflets can improve function and quality of life and reduce the risk of hospitalization.
Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) is a procedure for select patients with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis who are not candidates for traditional open chest surgery.
This nonsurgical procedure has a success rate of over 90 percent. It is used to treat some types of rapid heart beating, such as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter and atrial tachycardia.
The WATCHMAN Implant is a safe alternative to long-term warfarin therapy which offers comparable stroke risk reduction and enables patients to stop taking warfarin.
A transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE) is a special type of echocardiogram. It is usually done when your doctor wants to look more closely at your heart to see if it could be producing blood clots.
Aortic valvuloplasty also known as balloon aortic valvotomy is the widening of a stenotic aortic valve using a balloon catheter inside the valve. The balloon is placed into the aortic valve that has become stiff from calcium buildup.
The tilt-table test is a simple, inexpensive, and informative test that can help identify the causes of fainting. A tilt table test, occasionally called upright tilt testing, is a medical procedure often used to diagnose dysautonomia or syncope.
The primary objectives for the treatment of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) are to prevent pulmonary embolism (PE, reduce morbidity, and prevent or minimize the risk of developing the postthrombotic syndrome (PTS).
Dialysis declotting interventions improve blood flow in fistula and grafts. A treatment that uses a special machine to remove waste materials from the body.
Endovascular aneurysm repair (or endovascular aortic repair) is a type of endovascular surgery used to treat pathology of the aorta.
