Interventional cardiology

Interventional cardiology is a modern, revolutionary branch in cardiology. Being the result of a combination between classic cardiology and cardiac surgery, it offers large benefits for patients. The essence of this branch are the minimally invasive treatment techniques. By using advanced technologies, interventional cardiology solves cases that traditionally were treated with a scalpel. Compared to traditional surgery, the peri-procedural risks in interventional cardiology are minimal.

At Medpark we offer the following minimally invasive cardiological treatments:
  • Diagnostic coronarography;
  • Ventriculography;
  • Percutaneous coronary angioplasty, with balloon and stent (BMS, DES);
  • Percutaneous angioplasty in Acute Myocardial Infarction with thrombus aspiration followed by stenting;
  • Peripheral angioplasty, including carotid and kidney arteries angioplasty;
  • Temporary pacing;
  • Right and left cardiac catheterization;
  • Pericardiocentesis;
  • Permanent pacemaker implant (DDD, VVI);
  • Renal denervation;
  • Cerebral angiography;
  • Filter placement on inferior vena cava.
Being in step with the latest global trends in interventional cardiology Medpark introduces in practice cutting-edge procedures like:
  • TAVI – Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation;
  • EVAR – Endovascular Abdominal Aneurysm Repair;
  • TEVAR – Thoracic Endovascular Aortic Repair;
  • Electrophysiological study and ablation therapy for arrhythmias;
  • Renal denervation;
  • Implant of cardiac defibrillator (DDD, VVI, CRT);
  • Closure of atrial septal defect (ASD);
  • Closure of persistently patent ductus arteriosus (PDA).
Interventional cardiology can be a great option for you because:
  • some complicated open heart interventions can be replaced by simple, non-surgical procedures;
  • procedures are minimally invasive, leave no postoperative scars and the complications are rare;
  • procedures are not painful and don’t cause postoperative pain;
  • procedures pose minimal risk to the patient’s life;
  • it is the only solution for patients who do not qualify as candidates for open heart surgery
