Cardiac Catheterization Lab
Transforming treatment with interventional cardiology
The cardiac catheterization lab at Nacogdoches Medical Center offers a wide range of diagnostic and interventional procedures. Below you’ll find brief descriptions of some procedures and benefits to this approach:
- Many lifesaving procedures that are performed in our catheterization lab rather than in the surgery suite
- Less-invasive procedures with fewer complications than other surgical procedures
- Interventional cardiologists and dedicated, experienced licensed radiology technicians and registered nurses
Interventional cardiology is transforming the way cardiac patients are treated. By using cardiac catheterization, medical professionals can perform less-invasive procedures. For example, angioplasties treat blocked arteries with bare metal and drug eluting stents, or atherectomies to grind plaque in the vessels.
