Heart and Vascular Institute - Studies

The invasive cardiology program offers patients treatment options for congenital heart disease, utilizing closure devices. Prompt surgical backup from a nationally recognized surgical team is available for all procedures. The international prominence of the Heart and Vascular Institute cardiac transplant program has provided opportunities to participate in various investigational studies, serving as a national clinical site for many state-of-the art device trials. Peripheral diagnostic and interventional procedures including upper and lower extremity, renal artery and carotid studies/interventions are also performed by the interventional physicians. Working together with physicians and staff from the Interventional Radiology and Vascular Surgery programs, a multi-disciplinary approach serves to optimize patient care.
