Interventional cardiology uses cardiac catheterization to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease. Procedures are performed in our state-of-the-art catheterization laboratories. This approach allows doctors to work through tiny incisions, reducing hospitalization, pain and recovery time for patients.
MercyOne Iowa Heart Center interventional cardiologists have expertise and superior technology to provide advanced interventional procedures for accurate diagnosis and treatment of heart disease. Often doctors can restore blood flow to threatened heart tissues without surgery.
Catheterization procedures include:
- Coronary and Peripheral
- Carotid Stenting
- PFO (patent foramen ovale) / ASD (atrial septal defects) closures
- Intravascular Ultrasound (IVUS)
- Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implant Replacement (TAVR)
Iowa Heart Center offers catheterization services at several central Iowa hospitals.
