Coronary angioplasty, also called percutaneous coronary intervention, is a procedure used to open clogged heart arteries.
An ASD closure device is attached to the catheter and advanced to the heart and through the defect, under the guidance of X-ray and intra-cardiac echocardiogram. The closure device is then placed across the ASD opening and the defect is closed.
Atrial flutter ablation is a procedure to create scar tissue within the right upper chamber of the heart in order to block the electrical signals that cause a fluttering heartbeat.
A coronary angiogram is a procedure that uses X-ray imaging to see your heart's blood vessels
The ankle-brachial index test is a quick, noninvasive way to check for peripheral artery disease (PAD).
A type of recording device that you wear at home to monitor your heart rate and rhythm. Different monitors can be worn for different amounts of time.
A biventricular pacemaker works like a conventional pacemaker, but uses a third wire to send electrical impulses to the heart to ensure that both lower chambers of the heart contract at the same time.
The CardioMEMS device is implanted in the pulmonary artery using a catheter. It measures changes in pulmonary artery pressure, which can be a sign of fluid retention in the lungs due to worsening heart failure.
CTO is a minimally invasive technique used to treat patients with long-standing complete blockages of the coronary arteries.
Cardiac catheterization is a procedure used to diagnose and treat several different cardiovascular conditions. The procedure involves insertion of one or more small tubes (catheters) into blood vessels in the arms or legs. The catheters are then maneuvered into the heart and can be used to take measurements and provide treatment.
A carotid artery duplex scan is an ultrasound test to look at how blood flows through the carotid arteries in your neck.
A cardiac MRI is a painless imaging test that uses radio waves, magnets, and a computer to create detailed pictures of your heart.
Cardiac computed tomography (CT) for Calcium Scoring uses special x-ray equipment to measure the amount of calcium built up in the wall of the coronary arteries, the vessels that provide blood supply to the heart muscle. The general principle is that higher calcium levels in the walls of the vessels is associated with more blockages on the inside of those vessels. No IV contrast or dye is needed for this procedure.
A computerized tomography (CT) coronary angiogram is an imaging test that looks at the arteries that supply blood to your heart (coronary arteries).
Ambulatory monitors that are able to record the heart's rhythm.
Echocardiography is a diagnostic test that uses ultrasound, or high-frequency sound waves, to create images of the heart’s structure and function, to measure the blood pressure inside the heart, and to measure the direction and speed of blood flow.
A leadless pacemaker is a type of pacemaker that is placed directly in the heart without the need for wires.
An arterial duplex ultrasound uses sound waves to create a color map of the arteries in your arms to identify a blocked artery.
An arterial duplex ultrasound uses sound waves to create a color map of the arteries in your legs to identify a blocked artery.
An event monitor (loop recorder) is a small recorder that monitors your heartbeat and is used to record potential abnormalities.
A catheter based procedure done to close a patent foramen ovale (PFO). A clamshell-like device is placed across the hole between in the left and right atrium in order to stop blood from going across the hole.
A pacemaker is a small device that’s implanted under the skin of the chest. It produces electrical pulses to prevent the heart from beating too slowly.
Pulmonary vein isolation is a procedure used to stop abnormal electrical signals in your heart that cause heart rhythm problems.
A right heart catheterization is a test used to see how well your heart is pumping by measuring the blood pressure in your heart and the main blood vessels in your lungs.
A Renal Artery Duplex is an ultrasound test that uses high frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to examine the arteries that feed blood to the kidneys.
A stent, which looks like a tiny coil of wire mesh, supports the walls of your artery and helps prevent it from re-narrowing after the angioplasty.
There are different sleep diagnostics that may be performed as recommended by your physician.
Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) ablation is a procedure to create scar tissue within the heart in order to block abnormal electrical signals and restore a normal heart rhythm.
A stress test shows how your heart works during physical activity. It is used in a variety of situations.
Technetium Pyrophosphate Study
A diagnostic test for patients in whom there is a suspected cardiac ATTR amyloidosis.
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement, is the replacement of the aortic valve of the heart via a catheter placed in the leg, rather than an open surgical procedure.
A stress test, sometimes called a treadmill test or exercise test, helps a doctor find out how well your heart handles work.
Ventricular tachycardia ablation is a procedure to eliminate the areas of the heart where erratic electrical signals arise that can cause your heart to beat ineffectively.
