Surgery Of All Arteries
Procedures and Surgeries
Angioplasty is a procedure to restore blood flow through the artery. You have angioplasty in a hospital. The doctor threads a thin tube through a blood vessel in the arm or groin up to the involved site in the artery. The tube has a tiny balloon on the end.
It is also known as Percutaneous Coronary Interventions [PCI], Balloon Angioplasty, and Coronary Artery Balloon Dilation.
Artificial Heart Valve Surgery
Replaces an abnormal or diseased heart valve with a healthy one.
Similar to angioplasty except that the catheter has a rotating shaver on its tip to cut away plaque from the artery.
Also known as CABG, pronounced “cabbage,” Coronary Artery Bypass Graft done via Open-Heart Surgery
Vascular surgeon diagnoses treat, and manages conditions in your arteries and veins, also called your blood vessels. These specialists treat a range of health problems, from spider and varicose veins to life-threatening aneurysms, and can help patients manage chronic conditions throughout their lives.
An experimental procedure in which skeletal muscles are taken from a patient’s back or abdomen. Then they’re wrapped around an ailing heart. This added muscle, aided by ongoing stimulation from a device similar to a pacemaker, may boost the heart’s pumping motion.
Removes a diseased heart and replaces it with a healthy human heart when a heart is irreversibly damaged. Uses hearts from organ donation.
A stent is a wire mesh tube used to prop open an artery during angioplasty. The stent stays in the artery permanently.
