Interventional cardiology is a subspecialty of cardiology and includes the medical diagnosis and treatment of heart and vascular problems. Interventional cardiologists focus on specialized (often catheter-based) procedures to evaluate or treat poor blood flow, vascular diseases, coronary artery disease, structural heart diseases, and congenital heart defects.
To determine which interventional cardiology treatments best match your needs, the Advanced Cardiovascular Consultants team reviews your medical history and symptoms. They complete a physical examination and may recommend blood tests or diagnostic imaging procedures.
Your Advanced Cardiovascular Consultants specialist may recommend interventional cardiology procedures, such as:
With cardiac catheterization, your cardiologist inserts a catheter into a vein or artery and uses X-rays to view images of blood vessels. During this procedure, they may use a balloon-like device to inflate blood vessels and insert a stent to keep an artery open.
Your cardiologist uses blood vessel grafts to bypass blocked arteries during coronary artery bypass surgery, so blood can flow around them and reduce the risk of a heart attack or stroke.
Your cardiac surgeon can implant specialized devices, such as a cardiac pacemaker, inside your body to control abnormal heart rhythms better.
During aneurysm repair, your vascular surgeon uses a stent graft to repair a bulging or weak artery.
Cryoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure in which your surgeon inserts a balloon catheter into blocked arteries. Using liquid nitrous oxide, they inflate and freeze tissue to eliminate blockages.
During laser atherectomy, your vascular surgeon inserts a catheter into blocked arteries to remove plaque associated with peripheral artery disease or other vascular problems.
During nuclear stress testing, your vascular specialist inserts radioactive dye into your bloodstream to view images of your heart during rest or physical activity.
In addition to catheter-based procedures, the team at Advanced Cardiovascular Consultants offers electrocardiograms (EKGs), echocardiograms, Holter monitoring, stress tests, MRIs, and CT scans.
The vascular specialists at Advanced Cardiovascular Consultants offer the latest advancements in heart or blood vessel diagnoses and treatments. They administer sedation and general anesthesia, depending on which cardiology procedure you’re undergoing, so you don’t feel any discomfort.
In addition to diagnostic and surgical procedures, your cardiologist offers lifestyle counseling and medications to lower your risk of heart-related problems or risk factors.
Don’t let heart or vascular diseases go undetected and untreated, increasing your risk of serious medical problems. Schedule an appointment over the phone or online to find out which interventional cardiology treatment is right for you.
