heart treatment procedures

Interventional Cardiology

Adventist Health White Memorial's Catheterization labs offer non-surgical methods to treat heart conditions. Four state of the art procedure rooms offer diagnostic and interventional services that include:

Coronary Artery Disease Diagnosis

  • Diagnosis of coronary artery disease with angioplasty, is with the insertion of a small tube into the heart through the arteries in the arm or groin
  • Intravascular ultrasound, is a diagnostic imaging procedure that takes place within the arteries of the heart

Coronary Artery Disease Treatment

  • Angioplasty is the dilatation of the artery using a balloon catheter
  • Stent implantation (bare metal and drug eluding)

Heart Arrhythmia Diagnosis and Treatment

  • Electrophysiology studies is the placement of electrodes within the heart to study its electrical function
  • Cardioversion is the stimulation of the heart to beat normally using electrical current
  • Radiofrequency ablation is destruction of areas of the heart that are causing arrhythmias
  • Pacemaker implantation is the insertion of a device to regulate the heartbeat
  • Automatic Implantation Cardioverter Defibrillator (AICD)

Peripheral Artery Disease

  • Diagnosis and percutaneous treatment of peripheral arteries
