Interventional Cardiology

Interventional Cardiology is a specialty in cardiovascular medicine that focuses on the catheter based (minimally invasive) treatment of structural heart diseases. Interventionists are cardiology physicians who treat heart conditions by minimally invasive interventional methods.

Our Interventional Cardiologists are experts in the following cutting-edge, minimally invasive procedures to treat heart disease:

  • Coronary and Peripheral Angioplasty
  • Rotational atherectomy
  • Clot extraction technology
  • Percutaneous Closure of Congenital Heart Defects (PFO/ASD/VSD)
  • Valvuloplasty
  • Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)
  • Mitral/Tricuspid transcatheter therapies
  • Left atrial appendage occlusion (LAAO) therapy for atrial fibrillation

Our expert team of Interventionists is practiced in handling all potential complications associated with cardiac catheterizations and interventions, including the management of mechanical complications of percutaneous interventions, such as:

  • Coronary dissection
  • Thrombosis
  • Spasm
  • Perforation
  • “slow flow”
  • Cardiogenic shock
  • Left main trunk dissection
  • Cardiac tamponade including pericardiocentesis
  • Peripheral vessel occlusion and retained components
  • Pseudoaneurysm
