Tests & Treatments

  • Angiogram

    Angiogram is an X-ray exam of the blood vessels to diagnose blockages, narrowing or other blood vessel problems. Also referred to as angiography, this procedure uses a special dye (or contrast agent) to make the blood vessels visible.
  • Angioplasty is a minimally invasive procedure used to open a coronary (heart) artery that is completely or mostly clogged with deposits of fat and cholesterol called plaque.
  • Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG)

    Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) is an open surgical procedure used to improve blood flow to the heart in people with severe coronary artery disease. During CABG, a healthy artery or vein taken from another part of the body is connected to the blocked coronary artery to bypass the blockage, creating a new path for blood to flow to the heart muscle.  
  • Stent Placement

    Stent placement is often done as part of an angioplasty procedure to widen and restore blood flow through blood vessels that have become narrowed, as well as to reduce the risk of brain and abdominal aortic aneurysms rupturing. A stent (a metal mesh or fabric tube) is used to prevent re-narrowing or reinforce a weak area in a blood vessel. After coil embolization to seal off a wide-necked aneurysm, a stent may be needed to create a barrier that keeps the coil in place.
