Cardiac Catheterization and Interventional Cardiology

Cardiac catheterizationis a minimally invasive procedure used to detect the presence of heart disease. A catheter is inserted into the groin or wrist and advanced to the heart. Dye is injected to identify any blockages in the heart. (This procedure is called an “angiogram.”) If a blockage is detected, it can be opened through a procedure called “angioplasty” or “stent implantation.”

Cardiac Catheterization Expertise at Weill Cornell Medicine 

The Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory of New York Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell Medical Center is at the cutting edge of interventional cardiology.

Our highly trained interventional cardiologists specialize in catheter-based methods to treat coronary artery disease, peripheral vascular disease, valvular heart disease, and structural heart disease. These highly efficient techniques prevent the need for open-heart surgery, consequently reducing the risks associated with more invasive procedures.

Read our Guide to Cardiac Catheterization, Angioplasty, and Stent Implantation.

Interventional Cardiology Services

Our team of renowned interventional cardiologists offers treatments and procedures for: 

  • Obstructive coronary artery disease: balloon angioplasty, stent placement, rotational atherectomy, directional atherectomy, mechanical thrombectomy, and embolic protection
  • Intravascular Ultrasound and FFR
  • Stenotic valve disease: transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), balloon valvuloplasty
  • Mitral valve disease: minimally invasive mitral valve repair and mitral valve replacement
  • Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy: alcohol septal ablation
  • Peripheral artery disease, including obstructive carotid artery disease: balloon angioplasty, stent placement, and atherectomy
  • Atrial septal defect and patent foramen ovale: non-surgical closure
