Interventional Cardiology

In some cases, heart disease can be treated using minimally invasive interventional cardiology techniques that use a catheter (thin, flexible tube) inserted into the arteries. The catheter is guided to the heart to open blocked arteries and improve blood flow. These advanced techniques are performed on an outpatient basis and offer a non-surgical alternative to treat many heart conditions.

At Florida Hospital Ocala formerly Munroe Regional Medical Center, our board-certified cardiologists are able to offer a number of interventional cardiology procedures as part of an individualized treatment plan for each patient, including:

  • Stents
  • Drug Eluting Stents (coated stent, medicated stent)
  • Carotid Artery Stenting
  • Renal Artery Stenting
  • Peripheral Artery Stenting
  • Fox Hollow Plaque Excision
  • CryoPlasty Therapy for Peripheral Vascular Disease
  • Coronary Rotoblader
  • Inferior Vena Cava Filter
  • Arteriovenous Fistula Examinations (AV fistula)
  • Atrial Septal Defect Transcatheter Closure (ASD Closure)
  • Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO)
