Interventional Cardiology

Our interventional cardiologists have proven expertise in diagnosing and treating patients with diseases of the heart, blood vessels or coronary artery disease.

 

Physicians use angioplasty, a minimally invasive procedure to unblock arteries and restore blood flow to the heart. The procedure used in most cases is called percutaneous intervention (PCI) with drug-eluting coronary stents. These special stents are coated with medication that helps prevent the formation of scar tissue at the site of the intervention.

Hallmark Health is pleased to announce that Melrose-Wakefield Hospital has been selected by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) to participate in an elective angioplasty trial. The Hospital is one of only seven throughout the Commonwealth to participate in the MASS COMM Trial that studies the benefits of elective angioplasties without on-site cardiac surgery back-up. Elective (non-emergent) angioplasty is available at Hallmark Health only as part of the MASS COMM clinical trial.

We now offer residents a higher level of cardiac care that was previously only available in tertiary hospitals. In addition, Hallmark Health invested millions of dollars in its state-of-the-art, fully digital cardiac catheterization equipment. It is the same type of equipment being used at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Interventional treatments include:

  • Cardiac catheterization

  • Coronary stenting

  • Angioplasty, emergent and electively scheduled

  • Acute heart attack treatments

  • Non-invasive cardiac testing

Endovascular and Vascular Care

Read how Vascular disease is treated with advanced expertise at Hallmark Health

Interventional radiologists and vascular surgeons provide care to patients with vascular disease through the proficient use of endovascular techniques previously done only in teaching hospitals. Using sophisticated minimally invasive techniques, our physicians use tiny instruments that can be positioned through the blood vessels to treat blockages in the carotid, renal and peripheral arteries.

 

For more than two decades Hallmark Health System's physicians have been at the cutting edge of vascular treatment and repairs, bringing the latest techniques for treating peripheral vascular disease to our community. They perform endovascular procedures (angioplasties and stents) on the abdominal aorta and lower extremities. The latest techniques for treating the vascular system include:

  • Non-invasive vascular tests

  • Endovascular aortic aneurysm repair

  • Treatment for leg pain and Peripheral Vascular Disease

  • Blood clot treatment

  • Vascular surgery
