                  Heart Catheterization Laboratory

                  At the Heart and Vascular Institute, we specialize in diagnosing and treating cardiovascular conditions using minimally invasive techniques. Many of these procedures take place in cardiac catheterization labs.

                  Transcath

                  Our cardiac catheterization laboratory (cardiac cath lab) is a special examination room featuring sophisticated equipment and specially trained staff who carry out procedures using catheters. These thin, spaghetti-like tubes allow us to access your heart and surrounding structures through tiny incisions.

                  • Advanced techniques: We are the first hospital in Michigan to use the radial approach for the majority of our patients. Using this technique, our interventional cardiologists access your heart using the radial artery in your wrist. Most patients are able to go home the same day as their procedure.
                  • Round the clock access: Our team of specialists is ready to perform life-saving treatments such as angioplasty any time of the day or night. On average, we perform this procedure within 65-75 minutes of your arrival to the emergency department.

                  Our team includes experts with years of experience and special training in performing catheter-based procedures:

                  • Cardiologists
                  • Cardiovascular technologists
                  • Interventional radiologists
                  • Nurses
                  • Nurse practitioners
                  • Registered cardiovascular invasive specialists (RCIS)
                  • Vascular medicine specialists

                  Cardiac catheterization in southeast and south central Michigan

                  Whether you are experiencing symptoms for the first time or you are preparing for surgery, we expertly deliver an array of tests and procedures:

                  • Diagnostic procedures: Using special imaging techniques, such as transesophageal echocardiogram, we closely examine your heart and surrounding structures to diagnose your condition and pinpoint the source of your problems.
                  • Treatments: With dedicated labs throughout southeastern and south central Michigan, our cardiac cath team delivers a broad range of treatments for conditions such as arterial stenosis and heart attacks.
                  • Lifelong care: We provide care for chronic conditions such as certain congenital heart conditions, which require ongoing monitoring.

                  Diagnostic tests available in the cardiac cath lab include:

                  • Diagnostic cardiac catheterization
                  • Biopsies
                  • Coronary ultrasound

                  Catheter-based treatments (interventions) available in the cardiac cath lab include:

                  Door-to-Balloon Time

                  A successful angioplasty program can be measured in door-to-balloon time — the time between your arrival in the ED and the time you receive an angioplasty procedure. According to the AHA, heart attack patients have a higher survival rate if they receive angioplasty within 90 minutes.
