The Cardiac Catheterization Interventional procedure is much like the Cardiac Catherization Diagnostic procedure; however, if a blockage were identified, an interventional procedure would be used to open the blocked artery.
Cardiac interventional procedures include Balloon Angioplasty and Stent placement. These proecedures can be performed at St. Joseph’s University Medical Center from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Your procedure can be performed through the femoral artery in the groin or through the wrist for quicker ambulation. Your cardiologist can discuss the best option with you.
