About Interventional Cardiology

Interventional cardiology is a branch of cardiology dealing with catheter based treatments for structural heart diseases.  Interventional cardiology uses catheters for diagnosis and treatment of heart diseases.

The catheter is a long, tubular, flexible instrument inserted through blood vessels in the radial artery in the arm, the femoral artery in the groin, or neck, and threaded to the heart. By inserting a catheter it helps to assess the patient’s heart condition.  It can be used to repair a damaged heart valve, or clear a clogged artery.

Some interventional cardiology procedures include coronary angioplasty (Stent), balloon valvuloplasty and cardiac ablation.
