Charlotte Cardiology physicians maintain full privileges at nine regional hospitals. Our physicians provide inpatient and outpatient consultations, oversee a full range of diagnostic procedures and offer the latest invasive, diagnostic and interventional procedures, including cardiac catheterization, balloon angioplasty, rotoblator and stent placement.
With this complex but safe procedure, a catheter (a long, narrow flexible tube) is inserted through a blood vessel into the heart. X-ray imaging shows the blood flow through the arteries and makes it possible to determine the best treatment for specific conditions.
This non-surgical procedure uses a small balloon to push aside plaque and increase blood flow through the coronary artery.
A rotoblator procedure uses a diamond-tipped burr to open difficult, hard blockages.
With an intracoronary stent procedure, a metallic, spring-like device is implanted to hold arteries open following balloon angioplasty.
