State-of-the-art Lifesaving Technology
Implantable Heart Pump
The Impella® is a tiny implantable pump inserted minimally invasively into the chest with a catheter, through the femoral artery of the groin and into the heart’s pumping chamber. It pumps for the heart so it can rest and recover from the cardiac event.
Intravascular Ultrasound Imaging
We have the latest in coronary artery imaging technology in its cardiac catheterization lab including intravascular ultrasound, known as IVUS, which is a catheter-based diagnostic procedure used to view the inside of a coronary artery. IVUS provides a real-time view of your heart, atheroma, and arteries and shows the entire artery wall to provide important information about the amount and type of plaque buildup, which can help determine if you are at risk for heart attack.
