Comprehensive Interventional Cardiology Services
At CHI St. Luke’s Health - Performance Medicine, we offer a wide range of interventional cardiology services aimed at diagnosing and treating various cardiac conditions. Our goal is to ensure optimal patient outcomes through the use of advanced techniques and cutting-edge technologies.
Cardiac catheterization is a diagnostic procedure used to evaluate the health of your heart and blood vessels. Our skilled interventional cardiologists insert a thin, flexible tube called a catheter into a blood vessel in your arm, leg, or neck, and guide it to your heart. This allows us to assess any blockages or abnormalities, measure blood flow, and perform necessary interventions.
Coronary Angioplasty and Stenting
Coronary angioplasty, also known as percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), is a minimally invasive procedure used to open blocked or narrowed coronary arteries. During angioplasty, a small balloon catheter is inserted into the affected artery and inflated to widen the artery. In some cases, a stent (a small mesh tube) is placed to keep the artery open and restore normal blood flow.
Peripheral Vascular Intervention
Peripheral vascular intervention involves the treatment of narrowed or blocked blood vessels outside the coronary arteries, such as those in the legs, neck, or kidneys. Our expert interventional cardiologists utilize various techniques, including balloon angioplasty, stenting, and atherectomy, to restore blood flow and alleviate symptoms in these peripheral vessels.
Structural Heart Disease Interventions
Structural heart disease interventions are specialized procedures performed to repair or replace damaged structures within the heart. These procedures are typically less invasive alternatives to open-heart surgery. They include transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVR), and closure of atrial septal defects (ASD) or patent foramen ovale (PFO).
