  • Atrial Fibrillation Ablation

    Atrial fibrillation ablation is a procedure to treat atrial fibrillation. It uses small burns or freezes to cause some scarring on the inside of the heart to help break up the electrical signals that cause irregular heartbeats. This can help the heart maintain a normal heart rhythm.

  • Atrial Fibrillation Surgery

    The Maze procedure is a type of heart surgery to treat atrial fibrillation.

  • Atrial Septal Defect Transcatheter Repair for Children

    Atrial septal defect (ASD) transcatheter repair is a procedure to fix a hole in the atrial septum. Your child will not need an incision in the chest wall.

  • Blood Test

    You may need regular blood tests to keep track of how well you and your doctor are managing a condition such as diabetes or high cholesterol.

  • Blood Transfusions for Children

    A blood transfusion is when blood is put into the body. During a blood transfusion, your child receives donated blood through one of his or her blood vessels.

  • Cardiac Catheterization

    In cardiac catheterization (often called cardiac cath), a very small hollow tube, or catheter, is advanced from a blood vessel in the groin or arm through the aorta into the heart. Once it is in place, several diagnostic and treatment procedures can be done using catheterization.

  • Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy

    Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is a type of treatment to help correct serious heart rhythm problems. It involves placing a device under your skin that is connected to the heart's ventricles. The device sends electrical signals to help them pump the way they should.

  • Carotid Angioplasty and Stenting

    Angioplasty and stenting is a procedure to improve the blood flow in an artery or vein. It involves threading a thin tube with a balloon at its tip through the artery to the blocked portion. The balloon is inflated opening up the artery. A stent is placed to prop it open. A stent is a mesh tube.

  • Carotid Artery Duplex Scan

    A carotid artery duplex scan is an imaging test to look at how blood flows through the carotid arteries in your neck.

  • Carotid Endarterectomy

    Carotid endarterectomy (CEA) is a surgical treatment for carotid artery disease. The carotid arteries are the main blood vessels that carry oxygen and blood to the brain. In carotid artery disease, these arteries become narrowed. This reduces blood flow to the brain and could cause a stroke.
