St. Mary Announces Major Expansion in Cardiology Capabilities


a heart attack provides patients the immediate intervention needed to

minimize damage to the heart. Angioplasty clears blockages in arteries

to restore blood flow to the heart. In many cases, coronary stents are

then inserted to support the structure of the blood vessel and keep it

open. Precise coordination between the St. Mary Emergency Department,

interventional cardiologists and cardiac cath lab staff results in

door-to-balloon-time angioplasties being performed much faster than the

national average.

-- Amplatzer Closure - Inserted through a catheter in a leg vein, the

amplatzer closer is threaded through the inferior vena cava to the

heart in order to close patent foramen ovale and atrial septal defects.

Once the device is positioned, it is unsheathed, allowing it to deploy

across the defect and close the hole.

-- Carotid Artery Stenting - This minimally invasive treatment option is

an alternative to traditional surgery for blockages in the carotid

artery. With the patient under local, rather than general, anesthesia

physicians use a combination of balloon angioplasty and a stent implant

to re-open the carotid artery, a major supplier of blood to the brain.

-- Cryoplasty - Used to treat peripheral vascular disease, a specially

designed angioplasty balloon is filled with cold, liquid nitrous oxide

gas, and used to break down plaque and open blocked arteries in the


-- Rotational Atherectomy - Using a high-speed rotational burr, this

technique widens narrowed coronary arteries by removing

atherosclerotic plaque.

-- Drug-eluting Stent Implantation - During this procedure stents coated

with a special medication are permanently implanted to open an artery

and improve blood flow to the heart. The medication coating on the
