Interventional cardiology is a non-surgical option 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: • Coronary artery disease: A 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 which are in other parts of your body.
