Interventional Cardiology


Sacred Heart's Interventional Cardiology program, one of the busiest in West Florida, offers the full spectrum of techniques for opening narrowed coronary arteries and bypass grafts. Methods used for opening coronary arteries include balloon angioplasty, drug-coated stents, rotational atherectomy (sanding or roto-rooter), extraction (suction) and excimer laser atherectomy.


Sacred Heart's staff includes pediatric cardiologists with advance training in the care of children with heart disease or heart defects.

Sacred Heart was the first hospital in Northwest Florida to implant a coronary stent (1993) to help prop open arteries remain open. A stent is an expandable metal mesh tube that supports the blood vessel wall and maintains blood flow.

Angioplasty and stenting – performed in Sacred Heart’s cardiac catherization rooms -- are a less invasive treatment for coronary artery disease compared to open heart surgery. Most patients are able to return to work within a few days following an angioplasty procedure.
