When minimally invasive intervention methods for treating abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) are no longer an option, a vascular care physician may recommend aortic repair surgery as the best course of treatment.
Heart & Vascular Care Treatments
CABG (pronounced like the word "cabbage") reroutes blood flow around a blockage in the coronary artery so the heart muscle can get good blood supply.
If you think you may be experiencing a heart attack, call 9-1-1 immediately so that treatment can start as soon as possible.
MemorialCare is proud to offer cardiac rehabilitation to help heart care patients recover quickly and to return to doing the things they love.
Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), also called biventricular pacing, is delivered by a small, battery-operated device that can be permanently placed inside you.
Cardioversion is an external noninvasive therapy to treat many types of abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias), most commonly atrial fibrillation.
Carotid angioplasty is a minimally invasive procedure where a catheter with a balloon tip is inserted into a carotid artery and inflated to compress the plaque buildup in the blocked area.
Carotid endartectomy surgery is performed to remove the plaque buildup inside of the blocked carotid artery.
Catheter ablation is a nonsurgical technique used to pinpoint and interrupt specific abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias).
Congenital heart surgery can correct or improve heart disease malformations that developed before birth and are producing symptoms at birth, during childhood, or in adulthood.
Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) is a procedure in which a catheter with a balloon on the tip is inserted into a narrowed area of an artery.
When angioplasty and other minimally invasive methods of clearing blocked arteries are no longer an option, or if multiple vessels are blocked, a heart care physician may recommend bypass surgery as the best course for treatment.
