Interventional Cardiac Procedures

  • Treatment of coronary artery disease
  • Cardiac Catheterization: A procedure that accesses the heart through the wrist or thigh by inserting a thin catheter through the artery. This procedure looks for heart problems and checks for plaque buildup that may narrow the openings in the arteries. If plaque buildup has created blockages, it can be removed with angioplasty. This procedure pushes plaque and restores blood.
  • Stents
  • Transcatheter Aortic Valve ReplacementTranscatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a minimally invasive procedure for high-risk patients who have aortic stenosis. It is an alternative for patients who are not candidates for traditional aortic valve surgery. The device is expanded to take over the original valve’s function, allowing blood to flow efficiently out of the heart.
  • Internal cardiac defibrillator
  • Micra® Pacemaker for ArrhythmiaAn irregular or slow heartbeat can mean you need a pacemaker. The Micra ® Pacemaker is leadless and can be placed directly in the heart through a minimally invasive procedure. It does not require a surgical cut in the chest. This approach avoids creating a scar or bump under the skin.
  • WATCHMAN™ Left Atrial Appendage ClosurePatients who take warfarin blood thinners on a long-term basis have a new option. WATCHMAN™ Left Atrial Appendage Closure (LAAC)  helps prevent blood clots and possible stroke. The Implant is designed to close off the left atrial appendage (LAA). This prevents harmful blood clots from entering the bloodstream when blood pools in the heart.
  • Management of peripheral artery disease – Peripheral angiograms are performed to check for blockages in the blood supply for your legs and feet, arms and hands. The peripheral arteries are responsible for moving blood from your heart to these extremities. A peripheral angiogram is minimally invasive and uses a laparoscopic technique. That means a small incision is made to insert the catheter into the blood vessel. A contrast dye is injected and x-ray scans are taken to reveal any blockages.
  • Aortic and thoracic aneurysm repair
  • Treatment of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism
  • Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO) Closure –  PFO is a hole in the heart between the right and left atrium. All babies are born with it but it closes shortly after birth. When it does not close, it is considered a congenital heart defect. Infants with PFO do not experience any symptoms. In the event of other congenital heart disease or heart defects, cardiologists may suggest to seal the PFO. This may be suggested if the patient experiences low oxygen levels or an unexpected stroke. PFO Closures are typically minimally invasive procedures using a laparoscopic approach.
