Cardiologists are Physicians, who is specialize in diagnosing heart problem and treating heart diseases as well as blood vessels—the cardiovascular system. Interventional cardiology is a non-surgical option which uses a catheter – a small, flexible tube – to repair damaged or weakened vessels, narrowed arteries, or other affected parts of the heart structure.

Common conditions treated by Interventional cardiologists:

Coronary artery disease :
A narrowing of the arteries which supply the heart muscle with blood and oxygen.

Heart valve disease :
Occurs when the valves which control blood flow into the heart’s chambers are not working correctly.

Peripheral vascular disease :
Your heart can also be affected by clogged or hardened veins and arteries which are in other parts of your body.

Angioplasty :
When plaque clogs your arteries, it becomes difficult for blood to flow normally. Angioplasty inserts a tiny balloon into your clogged vein and pushes the plaque against the walls, allowing for increased blood flow.

Stenting :
Stenting is usually done in conjunction with angioplasty. A cardiac stent is a small metal coil that permanently holds a clogged vein open.
