Cardiology is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders of the heart as well as parts of the circulatory system. The field includes medical diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, heart failure...
Angiography or arteriography is a medical imaging technique used to visualize the inside, or lumen, of blood vessels and organs of the body, with particular interest in the arteries, veins, and the heart chambers.
Angioplasty is a non-surgical procedure used to treat narrowing (stenosis) of the coronary arteriesof the heart found in coronary artery disease. After accessing the blood stream through the femoral or radial artery.
A tiny balloon is inserted along the wire and then inflated to squash the plaque to the sides and improve the flow of blood through this section of the narrowed artery. This is often followed by the insertion of a metal mesh, called a stent, which holds the artery open after the balloon is withdrawn.
A catheter (hollow tube) with a balloon at its tip is inserted into an artery either in your groin or under your collarbone. The catheter is passed into your heart and positioned within the opening of the aortic valve. Then the balloon is gently inflated to make room for the new tissue valve, which is placed in position.
A pacemaker (or artificial pacemaker, so as not to be confused with the heart's natural pacemaker) is a medical device which uses electrical impulses, delivered by electrodes contracting the heart muscles, to regulate the beating of the heart.
Catheter procedures are much easier on patients than surgery because they involve only a needle puncture in the skin where the catheter (thin, flexible tube) is inserted into a vein or an artery. Doctors don't have to surgically open the chest or operate directly on the heart to repair the defect(s).
it is the widening of a stenotic aortic valve using a balloon catheter inside the valve. The balloon is placed into the aortic valve that has become stiff from calcium buildup. The balloon is then inflated in an effort to increase the opening size of the valve and improving blood flow.
