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.
Treatments for Heart & Vascular Care at Saddleback Medical Center
Heart valve repair or replacement surgery is performed to repair a defective or diseased heart valve.
Minimally Invasive Procedures
Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), also called biventricular pacing, is delivered by a small, battery-operated device that can be permanently placed inside you.
Catheter ablation is a non-surgical technique used to pinpoint and interrupt specific abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias).
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.
TCAR is a groundbreaking method to open up a blocked carotid artery with a small metal tube called a stent to improve blood supply to the brain.
TAVR is a minimally invasive procedure that allows the aortic valve of the heart to be replaced with a new valve by using a catheter.
The WATCHMAN™ Left Atrial Appendage Closure Device is a permanent implant designed to close the left atrial appendage in the heart to reduce the risk of stroke.
Peripheral Angioplasty & Stenting
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.
An implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) or subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator (SICD) is a small, battery-operated device.
We perform implant, extraction and replacement of pacing leads.
The Micra is the world’s smallest pacemaker that regulates the beating of the heart through electric signals. It is inserted through a catheter with a small incision in the groin.
An artificial pacemaker is a small, battery-operated device that can be permanently placed inside the chest or attached externally for temporary use.
MemorialCare is proud to offer cardiac rehabilitation to help heart care patients recover quickly and to return to doing the things they love.
