Heart care and vascular research at Cavanagh Heart Center has made a positive difference in patients’ lives:

  • A minimally invasive option for patients who are at high risk to undergo surgery for severe carotid artery disease.
  • Heart valve treatments that use a percutaneous (needle puncture) approach to deliver investigational device implants:  one type for patients with severe mitral regurgitation and another for patients with severe aortic stenosis that are considered high-risk to undergo surgery or considered inoperable.
  • An implantable device that monitors the heart and alerts the patient when a heart attack may be eminent even when no symptoms exist.
  • The cryoballoon ablation system, a method that uses as little as one freeze to block the electrical pathways responsible for atrial fibrillation.
  • An endovascular stent to treat patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms with severe bends or angles. 
  • Continuous trials involving new technologies to treat blockages in both the cardiac (coronary) vessels and vessels in the periphery.
