These are the services provided by the Doctors specialized in Interventional Cardiology.
Interventional Cardiology is a branch of cardiology that deals with treatment of structural heart diseases, using catheters.
The title of the Father of Interventional Cardiology is reserved for Andreas Gruentzig. This was possible due to the development of Angioplasty by Interventional Radiologist, Charles Dotter.
There are a number of procedures done the heart by catheterization. The most common is the insertion of a sheath through either the groin area or the wrist area, and then directing a catheter to the heart using the X-Ray Visualization. The radial artery is usually used for cannulating. The blockages are removed either by using a balloon (Angioplasty) or other procedures.
The advantages that Interventional Cardiology provides when compared to other medical procedures are:
The different procedures provided in ICS are:
This is an intervention for the coronary heart disease treatment. It is also called Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI).
The narrow cardiac valves, usually the mitral, aortic or the pulmonary, are dilated using this procedure,
The correction of the atrial septal and ventricular septal defects, closure of a patent ductus arteriosus and angioplasty of the great vessels, are usually done using the Percutaneous Approaches.
This is the replacement of a heart valve using percutaneous methods, as an alternative to open heart surgery. This is performed on the aortic valve, pulmonary valve and the mitral valve.
This procedure is another alternative to open heart surgery where percutaneous valve repair, using the MONARC system, is performed on the mitral valve.
The blood clot or thrombus is removed from the coronary arteries using this procedure
