Interventional Cardiology

Interventional cardiology is a division of cardiology that deals specially with the catheter based treatment of structural heart diseases. Andreas Gruentzig is considered the father of interventional cardiology after the enlargement of angioplasty by interventional radiologist Charles Dotter.

A large number of procedures can be accomplished on the heart by catheterization. This is most commonly method which is involves the insertion of a sheath into the femoral artery (but, in practice, any large peripheral artery or vein) and cannulating the heart under X-ray visualization. The radial artery also be used for cannulation; this approach deals with several advantages, including the accessibility of the artery in most patients, the easy control of bleeding even in anticoagulated patients, the enrichment of comfort because patients are capable of sitting up and walking immediately following the procedure, and the near absence of clinically significant sequelae in patients with a normal Allen test.
