Interventional Cardiology

What is Interventional cardiology?

Interventional cardiology deals particularly with the catheter-based treatment of heart diseases. Interventional cardiologists are board-ensured cardiologists who perform interventional cardiology systems, frequently in a heart catheterization lab at a hospital.

The majority part of interventional cardiology methodology are performed in the cardiovascular (heart, veins and arteries) system. Most interventional cardiology methods are thought to be negligibly obtrusive on the grounds that they don't require an instrument to enter the body or huge incisions - most incisions are around 1 inch. These strategies typically include the inclusion of a catheter (empty tube) into the femoral corridor in the upper leg. The catheter is guided toward the heart or vascular zone using constant X-beam.

Types of Interventional Cardiology Procedures

There are several main interventional cardiology procedures, including the following:

Angioplasty and Stenting

A slender, long tube is embedded into your wrist or leg through a vein and guided to your heart or different zones in your body. The specialist infuses a dye through your veins for direction while he plays out the stenting technique. The catheter has an inflatable at the tip which blows up to extend your supply route open and increment blood stream to your heart. He at that point puts a stent (little metal work chamber) into your vessel so it remains open.


Cardiologists put a burr or rotary shaver at the tip of a catheter and guide it to the range that is influenced to dispose of plaque that is developed in the dividers of your supply route. A laser catheter may be utilized as a part of a few cases to vaporize the plaque.

Embolic Protection

Infrequently, if the narrowing that is being dealt with is in your carotid veins or in a bypass graft, the specialist will utilize particular devices , for example, filters to keep the plaque from severing and going in your blood causing harm.

Percutaneous Valve Repair

You have four valves in your heart that controls how your blood courses through your heart chambers. Catheters are utilized to control gadgets like clasps to your harmed valve through your veins. Specialists at that point repair your valve so your blood can begin streaming appropriately again utilizing these devices.

Inflatable Angioplasty

A modest inflatable is embedded and expanded into your blocked supply route during this technique to make space. The plaque is compacted by the inflatable against your conduit divider to enhance your blood stream. The specialist at that point removes the inflatable from your body after the technique is finished.
