About Interventional Cardiology
Interventional cardiology uses minimally invasive techniques instead of open heart surgery in some circumstances to fix heart problems. It’s one of the most common treatment types for heart attacks and blocked arteries. These procedures use a thin tube called a catheter, which is inserted into a blood vessel. Your doctor uses the catheter to unblock arteries or insert a stent to keep them open, and you can often go home on the same day as your procedure.
Interventional cardiology treatments help improve blood flow to your heart, relieve pain and can reduce your risk of a heart attack. These methods are less invasive than heart surgery and often result in shorter hospital stays, faster recovery times and a quicker return to physical activity.
