Cardiac Catheterization Lab
The Cardiac Catheterization Lab offers state-of-the-art technology and treatment for heart disease. Two coronary digital labs are dedicated to offering coronary and peripheral catheter based procedures. Coronary angiography, percutaneous intervention, rotational atherectomy, cutting balloon angioplasty and coronary stent implantation are performed.
The Cardiac Catheterization Lab deals specifically with the catheter-based treatment of structural heart diseases. Many procedures can be performed on the heart by catheterization. The most common procedure involves inserting a small tube into an artery in the groin or wrist and viewing the heart with X-Rays. This treatment avoids scarring and pain, and long post-operative recovery.
The Cardiac Catheterization Lab features the following state-of-the-art technology and treatment for heart disease:
- Acute heart attack care program with one of the shortest response times in the nation in getting the blocked artery open
- Structural heart disease intervention with non-surgical treatment of congenital heart defects
- Intravascular ultrasounds (IVUS) and Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR) for invasive lesion assessment
- Percutaneous coronary and peripheral intervention
