Interventional cardiology is a specialized field of cardiovascular medicine that involves the use of balloons, stints and catheters to open up blocked arteries. These procedures many times are used to prevent the need for open-heart surgery. Most patients are capable of sitting up and walking immediately after the procedure.
Interventional cardiology procedures include:
Congenital Heart Defeat Correction
Percutaneous Valve Repair/Replacement
