Cardiac rehabilitation is a monitored exercise and education program that helps you regain your strength, reduce cardiac disease risk factors, and prevent future cardiac events. After a heart attack, heart surgery, or other cardiac issue, getting back to your normal routine can be challenging. Cardiac Rehab as an essential part of your recovery.
Heart Cath: The ARH Cardiology team may talk to you about a cardiac catheterization (cath) to see how well your heart is working. It can also be used to identify problems and administer a treatment for narrowed or blocked coronary arteries. A cath is a procedure that measures the pressure and blood flow in and around the heart. It can also be used to treat certain heart conditions. *all cardiologists except Patnaik and Rosenthal
- Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI)- ballooning and/or stenting a blockage in an artery of the heart.
- *Emergent 24/7 PCI*- stenting of a blockage during a heart attack.
- Coronary stent- tube-shaped device placed in the coronary arteries that supply blood to the heart in order to keep the arteries open in the treatment of coronary heart disease.
- AAA/Aneurysm Repair: Traditional open surgery replaces the diseased portion of the aorta with an artificial graft. Minimally invasive endovascular repair guides a stent-graft to the weakened area of the aorta wall with imaging guidance through a small incision.
- Coronary Angioplasty- is a procedure used to open clogged heart arteries. Angioplasty uses a tiny balloon catheter that is inserted in a blocked blood vessel to help widen it and improve blood flow to your heart.
- Cardioversion, elective – procedure that restores a normal heart rhythm in people with certain types of abnormal heartbeats (arrhythmias).
- Epicardial Lead Placement- left ventricular pacing.
