Treatments for Heart & Vascular Care

Surgical Procedures

Aortic Aneurysm Surgery

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.

Type:
Surgery

Aortic Root Repair/Replacement

Aortic root replacement involves the removal of a section of the aorta and aortic valve. The section of aorta is replaced with an artificial tube (graft), and the aortic valve is replaced with a mechanical or biological valve.

Type:
Surgery

Aortic Root Surgery

Aortic root surgery is a surgical procedure to treat a dilation or enlargement of a section of the large blood vessel (aorta) that carries blood from your heart to your organs. The aortic root is located near the junction of your aorta and your heart.
Doctors perform aortic root surgery to prevent an aneurysm rupture or a tear in the inner layer of the wall of the dilated aorta and to prevent the dilated aorta from stretching the attached aortic valve.

Type:
Surgery

Ascending Aortic Arch Replacement

An ascending aortic aneurysm is a bulge in the portion of the aorta closest to the heart. The ascending aorta begins at the heart's left ventricle and extends to the aortic arch, or the bend in the aorta. Aneurysms in the ascending aorta and aortic arch usually require immediate surgery.

Type:
Surgery

Carotid Endartectomy Surgery

Carotid endartectomy surgery is performed to remove the plaque buildup inside of the blocked carotid artery.

Type:
Surgery

Congenital Heart Surgery

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.

Type:
Surgery

Coronary Artery Bypass (CABG) Surgery

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.

Type:
Surgery

Elephant Trunk Operation

The elephant trunk procedure is a two-stage procedure used to treat extensive aneurysms involving both the ascending aorta and aortic arch, and the descending thoracic or thoraco-abdominal aorta

Type:
Surgery

Maze Surgery

Maze surgery treats atrial fibrillation, a type of an abnormal heart rhythm, by creating a "maze" of new electrical pathways so that electrical impulses can travel easily through the heart.

Type:
Surgery

Peripheral Vascular Surgery

Peripheral vascular surgery can be performed as an endarterectomy procedure, a technique used to remove the plaque buildup inside of the blocked artery.

Type:
Surgery

Septal Myectomy Surgery

Septal myectomy surgery is performed to remove part of an enlarged heart muscle called the septal muscle.

Type:
Surgery

Thoraco-Abdominal Aortic Replacement

Surgical repair of thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysms (TAAAs) enables the replacement of the diseased aortic segment and helps prevent aneurysm rupture.

Type:
Surgery

Minimally Invasive Procedures

Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT)

Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), also called biventricular pacing, is delivered by a small, battery-operated device that can be permanently placed inside you.

Type:
Minimally Invasive Procedure

Catheter Ablation

Catheter ablation is a non-surgical technique used to pinpoint and interrupt specific abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias).

Type:
Minimally Invasive Procedure

Minimally Invasive Direct CAB (MIDCAB) Surgery

A coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgical procedure that is performed without having the heart stopped and connected to a heart-lung machine.

Type:
Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally Invasive Maze Surgery

Minimally invasive maze surgery, also known as mini-maze, is an advanced procedure for atrial fibrillation.

Type:
Minimally Invasive Surgery

Thoracic Endovascular Aortic Repair (TEVAR)

Thoracic Endovascular Aortic Repair (TEVAR) is a minimally invasive procedure to repair the major blood vessel in the body, called the aorta.

Type:
Minimally Invasive Procedure

Valvuloplasty

Valvuloplasty is a minimally invasive procedure performed to increase the opening of a narrowed or defective valve in the heart.

Type:
Minimally Invasive Procedure

Noninvasive Therapy

Cardioversion

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.

Type:
Noninvasive Therapy

External Cardiac Counterpulsation

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.

Type:
Noninvasive Therapy

Peripheral Angioplasty & Stenting

Carotid 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.

Type:
Minimally Invasive Procedure

Peripheral Angioplasty & Stenting

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.

Type:
Minimally Invasive Procedure

State-of-the-Art Angiography Suite

The suite takes minimally invasive capabilities to a higher level, with advanced imaging technology supporting a wide variety of interventional vascular procedures.

Type:
Minimally Invasive Surgery

Electrophysiology

Micra Transcatheter Pacing System

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.

Type:
Minimally Invasive Procedure

Pacemaker Implant

An artificial pacemaker is a small, battery-operated device that can be permanently placed inside the chest or attached externally for temporary use.

Type:
Minimally Invasive Procedure
