About Our Practice

One of the most important organs in the body is the heart. It serves many functions and along with the brain, is critical in keeping us alive. In order to better understand the heart and all its functions, we look to cardiology experts to help us keep our heart and all its surrounding components healthy.
Cardiology is an area of expertise under the umbrella of internal medicine. Cardiologists, who are physicians who specialize in the field, are educated in disorders of the heart and blood vessels. Additional members of the cardiology field include cardiac surgeons who perform cardiac surgery–operative procedures on the heart and great vessels.
The main area of the cardiology field includes diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, heart failure, valvular heart disease, and electrophysiology. However, there are literally hundreds of disorders of the heart and each area of the heart can exhibit its own set of diseases and disorders. The heart is a complicated organ. In most cases, preventative is the best medicine for keeping it in its healthiest form. Making sure you eat right, exercise, and limiting risk factors such as smoking can all help keep you and your heart in great shape. However, if you do stumble upon a disorder that’s out of your control, it’s good to know where you can turn for expert cardiology care.

Cardiac Catheterization & Stenting in Houston

Cardiac Catheterization & Stenting

Cardiac Catheterization & Stenting in Houston – Advanced Cardiovascular Care Center

A coronary catheterization is a procedure to access the coronary circulation and blood filled chambers of the heart by using a catheter. It is performed for both diagnostic and interventional treatment purposes.

Coronary catheterization and Stenting is one of the several cardiology diagnostic tests and procedures. Specifically, coronary catheterization is a visually interpreted test performed to recognize occlusion, stenosis, restenosis, thrombosis or aneurismal enlargement of the coronary artery lumens; heart chamber size; heart muscle contraction performance; and some aspects of heart valve function. Important internal heart and lung blood pressures, not measurable from outside the body and it can be accurately measured during the test.

cardiac catheterization & Stenting

The relevant problems that the test deals with most commonly occur as a result of advanced atherosclerosis – atheroma is an activity within the wall of the coronary arteries. Less frequently, valvular, heart muscle or arrhythmia issues are the primary focus of the test.

Peripheral Doppler, Angiography & Stenting

Peripheral Doppler, Angiography & Stenting

A Peripheral Doppler is a non-invasive test that may suggest blockage in arteries (blood vessels) in the arms or legs. If a blockage is suspected it may then be necessary to directly visualize the inside of these arteries. This is called an Angiogram.

Symptoms :

  • Common symptoms that suggest blockage include pain or cramping of the legs or thighs while walking, early fatigue of the legs or arms with use, or in extremely severe cases pain at rest with discoloration of the limbs or none healing ulcers.
  • The obstructed vessel may be able to be opened with the goal of eliminating or improving symptoms. This is called Stenting.

Cardiac Catheterization and Stenting

CardiacCatheterization is an invasive procedure that is used to evaluate the coronary arteries, heart valves, and heart muscle. The cardiologist uses a long, thin tube called a catheter that is inserted through a blood vessel in arm or leg.  The catheter is threaded through the blood vessel, under X-ray, to the heart.  Contrast is injected through the catheter and images are recorded as the contrast moves through the arteries, chambers and valves of the heart.

Catheterization may determine the need for further treatment to be required, such as stent or bypass surgery. Certain heart disease treatments can be done during cardiac catheterization such as balloon angioplasty or stenting.

It’s often used instead of open-heart surgery to treat congenital heart defects. We perform hundreds of cardiac catheterizations a year. Our interventional catheterization specialists perform catheterization to observe a fetus or heart structure, measure blood pressure, close holes, expand narrowed passages and open new passages. The procedure is now used in instances that once required surgery.

Reasons to perform cardiac catheterization:

  • Cardiac catheterization is used to find the cause of symptoms, such as chest pain, that could suggest heart problems.

Benefits of performing cardiac catheterization:

  • Diagnose and treat problems that may cause heart attack or stroke
  • Identify blockages or narrowing that could cause chest pain
  • Obtain information for the best treatment plan

A stent is a little, metal cross section tube that is put inside a coronary artery to keep the vein open. To place the stent, a little entry point is made in the groin area to achieve the vein there. A catheter is guided through the groin artery into an area of the coronary artery which is blocked. The stent is embedded alongside an inflatable catheter and expands when the blow up is inflated. The stent is then left there to help keep the artery open.
