  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair

    Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair is done to treat an aneurysm. An aneurysm is a bulging, weak spot in the aorta that may be at risk for rupturing. In this case, the aneurysm is in part of the aorta that is in the abdomen.

  • Alcohol Septal Ablation

    Alcohol septal ablation is a minimally invasive procedure for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a condition in which your heart muscle is abnormally thick. The purpose of the procedure is to decrease your symptoms and to reduce future complications.

  • Amputation

    An amputation is the surgical removal of a all or part of an arm or leg due to injury, infection, or injury.

  • Angioplasty and Stent Placement for the Heart

    Angioplasty, also called percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), is a procedure used to open blocked coronary arteries (caused by coronary artery disease) and restore blood flow to the heart muscle without open-heart surgery.

  • Ankle Brachial Index Test

    The ankle brachial index, or ABI, is a simple test that compares the blood pressure in the upper and lower limbs. It is one way to detect peripheral arterial disease (PAD).

  • Anomalous Coronary Artery Intervention

    Anomalous coronary artery intervention is a type of procedure to correct a problem coronary artery. An anomalous coronary artery has an abnormal shape. This can cause it to be blocked. During the procedure, the blocked part of the artery is opened up.

  • Aortic Dissection Repair

    An aortic dissection is a tear (dissection) in the wall of your body’s main artery, the aorta. Treatment will depend on where the tear is located. You will most likely need surgery if the tear is on the ascending aorta. This is the part of the aorta that goes up through your chest toward your head.

  • Aortic Valve Replacement: Minimally Invasive

    A minimally invasive aortic valve replacement is a surgery to replace a badly working aortic valve with an artificial valve. The aortic valve is one of the heart’s four valves. The valves help blood flow through the heart’s 4 chambers and out to your body normally. The surgery is called “minimally invasive” because it uses a smaller incision than a traditional open repair.

  • Aortic Valve Replacement: Open

    An open, invasive aortic valve replacement is a surgery to replace a poorly working aortic valve with an artificial valve. An open, invasive aortic valve replacement is a surgery to replace a poorly working aortic valve with an artificial valve. 

  • Arm Care After a Stroke

    Many people who have a stroke are left with problems with one of their arms. Proper arm care after a stroke can help treat these problems with your arm. It can also help prevent new problems from starting. Arm care after a stroke includes techniques such as proper positioning.
