Coronary Angiography is advantageous for physicians, hence it helps to determine the issue of the blockage of coronary arteries or blood vessels of your heart. The whole procedure is done by placing a thin hollow tube called a catheter from an artery and reaching the heart. The X-ray images help the doctors to see the exact position of the Catheter. After the catheter is placed in the heart, the dye( contrast material) is injected into the catheter.
Angioplasty means using a balloon-type tool to broaden a tapered artery. Coronary Angioplasty is a treatment or a method to open a blocked coronary artery or blood vessels of your heart.
A Renal Angiography is a procedure to detect any blockage in the blood vessels or narrowing of a blood vessel affecting the blood supply to the kidneys through the catheter. The procedure is done with the help of a thin flexible tube i.e catheter which is put into the blood vessels by a small cut.
Carotid Angiography is an invasive imaging procedure to detect or look at the blockage in the carotid arteries or large blood vessels of your neck which is done by inserting a catheter in the blood vessels.
Peripheral Angioplasty is a medical course of action that is performed under local anesthesia in a cardiovascular catheterization laboratory. The diagnostic catheter is a thin and flexible tube that is inserted into a blood vessel by a small cut or incision in the patient’s hip or upper thigh (groin).
It is a procedure that involves the implantation of a small electronic device that is placed in the chest (during heart surgery) to get back to a normal pace and control the pulse rate or heartbeat.
Automated Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator
An automated Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD or AICD) is a small permanent device in which a lead is inserted in the right ventricle that monitors and corrects the abnormal heart rhythm or arrhythmia. These devices are generally used to treat serious and life-threatening arrhythmias.
A Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy Defibrillator (CRT-D) is a procedure to implant a cardiac device that sends small electrical impulses through insulated leads or wires put in the heart.
2-D Echo is also known as 2-D (two- dimensional) Echocardiography, which shows exact pictures of the heart that makes the procedure easy to check any damages, blockage, and blood flow rate with the help of sound vibrations.
The techniques that include complex coronary angioplasties and stenting using contemporary techniques like
- Bifurcation stenting technique
- Intravascular shockwave lithotripsy (IBL)
Transcatheter aortic valve implantation is the replacement of the aortic valve of the heart through the blood vessels as opposed to valve replacement by open-heart surgery.
