Interventional cardiology is a non-surgical technique which uses a catheter – a small, flexible tube – to repair damaged or weakened vessels, narrowed arteries, or other affected parts of the heart structure. Common conditions treated by interventional cardiology include:
Coronary artery disease: Narrowing of the arteries which supply the heart muscle with blood and oxygen.
Heart valve disease: Occurs when the valves which control blood flow into the heart’s chambers are not working correctly.
Peripheral vascular disease: Your heart can also be affected by clogged or hardened veins and arteries in the other parts of your body.
