Why Choose Us for Interventional Cardiology
Interventional cardiology uses a minimally invasive approach to patients with a blockage or heart defect. At Murrieta hospital, many of our specialized cardiac procedures are done with a heart catheterization, including:
- Angioplasty – an intervention that removes the blockages in coronary arteries through stents and balloons via catheter.
- Valvuloplasty – a procedure used to expand narrowed cardiac valves – mitral, aortic or pulmonary.
- Congenital heart defect correction – a procedure used to correct Atrial and Ventricular Septal defects, and Angioplasty of the large vessels.
- Coronary Thrombectomy – a procedure used to remove a blood clot from the coronary arteries.
