When plaque clogs your arteries, it becomes difficult for blood to flow normally. Angioplasty inserts a tiny balloon into your clogged vein and pushes plaque against the walls, allowing for increased blood flow.
Stenting is usually done in conjunction with angioplasty. A cardiac stent is a small metal coil which permanently holds a clogged vein open.
What is Non-Invasive Cardiology?
Non-invasive cardiology identifies heart problems without using any needles, fluids, or other instruments which are inserted into the body.
Non-invasive cardiologists utilize techniques such as:
A non-invasive study of cardiovascular disorders by means of various types of imaging which may use radioactive elements.
The usage of ultrasound waves to create images of the heart and surrounding structures in order to identify how well the heart pumps blood, infections, and structural abnormalities.
Stress testing usually involves exercise which is monitored by your cardiologist. These exercises provide your cardiologist information about how your heart performs under physical stress.
Heart monitors may also be called a Holter monitor or cardiac event recorder. Heart monitors are essentially tape recorders for your heart’s electrical activity over a set amount of time.
CT scans produce images which your cardiologist can examine for heart disease and atherosclerosis.
