Inova Heart and Vascular Institute (IHVI) medical leadership and staff have invested in building an innovative outpatient cardiac catheterization program, ensuring convenient and comfortable care with the expertise offered only at comprehensive heart centers such as IHVI. Our high ratio of outpatient procedures is made possible through early ambulation protocols and consistent use of closure devices.

Our outpatient cardiac catheterization program remains one of the busiest in the region, offering multidisciplinary expertise and convenient patient access in three locations – Inova Fairfax Medical Campus, Inova Alexandria Hospital, and Inova Loudoun Hospital.

The state-of-the-art cath lab suite at IHVI ensures pre-procedure preparation, cardiac catheterization and post procedure recovery areas are all located within the same dedicated suite. Family members can stay with patients before their procedure and during their recovery period. This coordinated approach to care, along with a dedicated interventional cardiology admission and recovery (ICAR) suite staff, have contributed to our consistently low complication rates.

Cardiac catheterization procedures are performed by interventional cardiologists.
