St. Mary Medical Center Opens New Cardiovascular Catheterization Labs Reaffirming Role as a Regional Leader in Cardiovascular Medicine

s 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 cath lab staff results in door-to-balloon-time angioplasties being performed much faster than the national average.
  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Stent Graft - This minimally invasive procedure is used to repair a weakened section of the aorta (an abdominal aortic aneurysm). The stent graft allows blood to flow through the stent, entirely bypassing the aneurysm, thus reducing the risk of rupture and eliminating the need for major abdominal surgery.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 these stents prevents the growth of scar tissue that often causes the treated artery to close up again.
  • Rotational Atherectomy - Using a high-speed rotational burr, this technique widens narrowed coronary arteries by removing atherosclerotic plaque.
  • Cryoplasty - Used to treat peripheral
