Heart and Vascular Testing

Accurate diagnosis is an essential component of effective cardiovascular care.

Aortic and Thoracic Endografts
Stent placed to weakened artery wall to prevent rupture and bleeding.

Aortic aneurysm surgery
Artificial graft placed surgically in the abdominal area to prevent rupture and bleeding to weakened artery  wall.

Balloon Angioplasty and sent placement for Peripheral Vascular Disease
Ballooning (enlarging) and stent placement for weakened or narrowed blood vessels most typically in legs to allow for more adequate blood flow.
 
Blood tests
Used to determine general health, risk factors, and heart function.

Calcium Scoring
CT test for the presence of calcium deposits in vessels of the heart.

Cardiac CT Angiography (CTA)
3D test used to look at the arteries that supply your heart in 3D.

Complex Lower Extremity Revascularization
Multiple interventions to restore blood flow to lower extremity if blocked, such as angioplasty, ballooning, stenting, grafting, continuous thrombolysis medication, etc.

Echocardiography 2D and 3D (Echo)
Ultrasound of the heart to show how it is functioning.

Electrocardiogram (EKG)
Looks at the rhythm and electrical activity of the heart from beat to beat.

Electrophysiology Study (heart rhythm testing)
Invasive and noninvasive procedures to determine how the electrical system of the heart is functioning.

Endovascular Bypass
Utilizing surgical and catheter based intervention to bypass large blockages of the vessels in the abdomen and groin.

Medical Management of Vascular Disease
Expert management of vascular disease with medication therapy to improve blood flow to affected areas.

Percutaneous Thrombectomy for Thrombosis
Insertion of catheter to area of blockage, catheter used to break up the clot and remove if necessary.

Peripheral Angioplasty
The use of a catheter and balloon to open up narrowed blood arteries outside of the coronary arteries. Usually the leg and groin areas affected by peripheral artery disease.

Pre-admission Screening and Testing
Performed to evaluate and educate patients before certain procedures and surgeries.

Radiology Exams (x-ray, CT scan, PET scan, ultrasound, nuclear scan, and MRI)
Used to help determine heart function.

Stress Testing (exercise and medicine stress tests)
Helps diagnose cardiac problems by viewing heart and blood vessel structure, capacity, and function both at rest and during activity or “stress”.

Surgical Bypass
Opening affected extremity surgically and using a graft to bypass around a blocked artery.

Tilt Table Testing
Used to diagnose causes of syncope or “passing out”.

Thoracic Aortic Dissection
A condition in which the aortic artery in the thoracic region becomes weakened and ruptures. May require medical management or emergent surgical intervention for repair.

Transesophageal Echocardiogram 2D and 3D (TEE)
Ultrasound of the heart from inside the esophagus to determine heart function in closer detail.

Thrombolysis
Breaking down blood clots by infusing medications through a catheter close to the clot.

Vascular and Wound Care
Diagnosis and treatment of vascular wounds- comprehensive care in treatment modalities and prevention of complications.
