An angioplasty is a procedure that uses a balloon to widen narrowed arteries.
Artificial Heart Valve Surgery
Artificial heart valve surgery involves replacing an abnormal or diseased heart valve with an artificial one.
An atherectomy is a procedure in which excess plaque is cut from an artery using a rotating shaver.
Bicuspid aortic valve surgery
A bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) is most commonly a congenital condition of the aortic valve. The condition occurs when two of the aortic valvular leaflets fuse during development resulting in a valve that is bicuspid (2) instead of the normal tricuspid (3) configuration. Aortic valve repair or replacement could be necessary for patients with severe aortic stenosis or aortic insufficiency/regurgitation, in those patients having symptoms, and/or those with evidence of abnormal left ventricular function
Bypass surgery involves creating alternative paths for blood flow to the heart using arteries and veins from other parts of the body.
Cardiac Catheterization (Cardiac Cath)
An invasive test that introduces a small catheter into the heart from the groin or arm, this allows measurement of various pressures inside the heart to aid in the diagnosis of heart failure. Biopsies of the heart tissue may be obtained in order to determine underlying causes of heart failure.
Minimally Invasive Heart Surgery
Minimally invasive heart surgery is performed through small incisions as an alternative to open heart surgery.
Radiofrequency ablation is a procedure in which an electrode is used to burn small amounts of heart muscle. This treats excessively rapid and irregular beating.
A stent procedure involves installing a wire mesh tube into a narrowed coronary artery to keep it open. It is often used in conjunction with an angioplasty procedure.
