Treatments for Coronary Artery Disease

Coronary Angioplasty (PCI)                                         

A splint placed temporarily inside a duct, canal, or blood vessel to aid healing or relieve an obstruction.

PCI, percutaneous coronary intervention, is also commonly known as a coronary angioplasty. This technique is used when the coronary arteries, which supply blood to the heart, are narrowed or blocked due to plaque build-up. During the procedure a flexible tube, called a catheter, is inserted into the blocked artery and will inflate to open the blocked vessels and restore blood flow.

A stent is also used during this procedure to help prevent the artery from closing again. A stent is a wire mesh tube that is placed in the blocked area to keep the artery open. This procedure can be used for the treatment of certain heart diseases such as blockage in an artery during or after a heart attack or persistent chest pain.

The angioplasty procedure is offered at:

Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG)

During a coronary bypass, blood flow is restored to the heart by creating an alternate route around the blocked arteries. This procedure can also be used to relieve angina symptoms when problems of the heart muscle present itself. Prior procedures required harvesting veins from the legs, resulting in a long and painful incision. Our facilities can perform endoscopic vein harvesting requiring only a 1-inch incision, less blood loss, and less pain.

CABG and Open Heart Surgery is offered at:
