Coronary Interventions

Interventional cardiology focuses on the use of catheters to treat structural heart problems. Interventional cardiologists make use of various diagnostic tools and imaging techniques to assess cardiovascular functions including blood flow in main arteries throughout the body as well as within the heart’s various chambers. This approach offers several advantages, including the easy control of bleeding even in anticoagulated patients, the enhancement of comfort because patients are capable of sitting up and walking immediately following the procedure
