Interventional cardiology utilizes catheters and small incisions to treat heart conditions instead of traditional open surgery. At Inova Heart and Vascular Institute, interventional cardiology deals specifically with advanced, minimally invasive cardiac treatments. These procedures may also be referred to as cardiac catheterizations.

Today’s interventional procedures greatly expand the treatment options available to Inova cardiologists and their patients. Interventional cardiology is the umbrella for many procedures like angioplasty, balloon valvuloplasty, coronary stent implant and more.
