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
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.
Carotid endartectomy surgery is performed to remove the plaque buildup inside of the blocked carotid artery.
Coronary artery bypass (CABG) surgery, also referred to as Coronary Revascularization, is a surgical procedure that allows blood to bypass or flow around clogged arteries bringing more blood and oxygen to the heart. It is often called CABG (pronounced like the word "cabbage") which stands for Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting.
Heart valve repair or replacement surgery is performed to repair a defective or diseased heart valve.
Left ventricular reconstruction surgery is performed to repair a left ventricle that has been damaged during a heart attack.
Peripheral vascular surgery can be performed as an endarterectomy procedure, a technique used to remove the plaque buildup inside of the blocked artery.
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.
Minimally invasive maze surgery, also known as mini-maze, is an advanced procedure for atrial fibrillation.
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.
Valvuloplasty is a minimally invasive procedure performed to increase the opening of a narrowed or defective valve in the heart.
Cardioversion is a procedure that can restore a fast or irregular heartbeat to a normal rhythm. A fast or irregular heartbeat is called an arrhythmia.
External cardiac counterpulsation is a non-invasive outpatient technique performed to decrease chest pain (angina pectoris) by increasing oxygen-rich blood flow to the heart.
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.
Peripheral angioplasty is a minimally invasive procedure where a catheter with a balloon tip is inserted into a peripheral artery. Peripheral stents are often implanted in conjunction with balloon angioplasty.
The suite takes minimally invasive capabilities to a higher level, with advanced imaging technology supporting a wide variety of interventional vascular procedures.
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.
If you think you may be experiencing a heart attack, call 9-1-1 immediately so that treatment can start as soon as possible.
