Minimally Invasive Treatments for Heart Disease

Minimally-invasive procedures for heart disease performed at Banner – University Medical Center Phoenix in Arizona.  

The Cavanagh Heart Center at Banner – University Medical Center Phoenix offers several minimally invasive treatments for heart disease.

For each treatment there are several different approaches. It is best to speak with your doctor to determine what specific treatments you need.

Catheterization Procedures
A catheterization procedure is a minimally invasive way to treat some forms of heart disease. Doctors do not surgically open the patient’s chest. They enter the heart through arteries in the legs or arms. They may use special tools to inject dye, clear blocked arteries, or insert a stent (small stainless steel tube) when needed. The Cavanagh Heart Center offers many cardiac-catheterization procedures including:

  • Ablation (cryoballoon and radio frequency)
  • Angioplasty (balloon pump)
  • Atherectomy (rotational)
  • Endovascular Abdominal and Thoracic Aneurysm Repair
  • Endovenous Ablation
  • ICD and Pacemaker Implantation
  • Peripheral Vascular Intervention
  • Pulmonary Embolism Clot Retrieval
  • Septal Defect Closures
  • Stent Implantation
