Benefits of Interventional Cardiology

Intervention cardiology has high success rates and provides patients with the following benefits:

 Less pain and scarring: In interventional cardiology, a catheter is inserted in the heart through a small incision, which has less pain and scarring than open-heart surgery. The procedure can last for 30 minutes.

Reduced risk of a heart attack: If you suffer from chest pains and shortness of breath, interventional cardiology can help relieve such symptoms. Besides, the procedure can be used to restore the flow of blood and open arteries, thus reducing your chances of suffering from a heart attack.

Ideal for young heart patients: Valvuloplasty is an interventional cardiology procedure that is highly effective for treating infants and children who have heart problems.

Less expensive: Interventional cardiology costs less compared to other heart surgery procedures.

Difference Between Interventional Cardiology and Vascular Surgery

It is vital to know what distinguishes cardiac catheterization from vascular surgery since this can help you to know about the merits and risks associated with each of these procedures. Intervention cardiology can treat several heart diseases while UPMC vascular surgery helps correct defects that affect the veins, arteries, and aorta. Let us now look at the distinct differences between the two procedures:

Nature and scope: In interventional cardiology, heart procedures are conducted using real-time imaging. The method has fewer demands and helps provide immediate action that is required when responding to life-threatening emergencies.

Pain barrier: There is less pain and invasion when using interventional cardiology compared to when vascular surgery procedure is used.

Hospital stays: You do not need to be sedated during heart treatment using intervention cardiology. You do not need to spend time in the hospital after treatment using intervention cardiology.
