Diagnostic and Interventional Cardiology Services

If invasive diagnostic cardiology services are required, a cardiac catheterization can be performed in Bayhealth's Cardiac Catheterization Suite. If there are blockages, the doctor can use the catheter to complete a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), opening the blockage and restoring normal blood flow. These procedures may be performed separately, or in combination. The three common types of PCI are:

  • Angioplasty
  • Coronary Stenting
  • Coronary Atherectomy

A number of other procedures can be performed in the Cardiac Catheterization Suite including diagnosis and treatment of blockages in the major arteries of the neck, kidneys, and legs.
