What kind of procedures does an interventional cardiologist do?

An interventional cardiologist performs various procedures:

1. Cardiac catheterisation/Angiogram

In this test, the presence, location and size of the plaque deposits in the arteries, the heart muscle stability, and the activity of the heart valves are detected.

2. Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI)/ Angioplasty

This procedure is also known as angioplasty in which the coronary artery is opened up to restore blood flow. This treatment is performed during emergencies for a heart attack patient. 

3. Balloon Angioplasty

This Angioplasty is performed to improve the blood flow to the heart. A balloon-tipped catheter is guided up to the blocked artery. When the balloon reaches the site of the blockage, it inflates and opens the artery walls by stretching it.

4. Atherectomy

In Atherectomy, a special pulverizing device is used to open the stiff blockages in the coronary arteries. This procedure is performed during balloon angioplasty.

5. Stent Implantation

When the balloon angioplasty or atherectomy is completed, a metal coil which is called a stent is placed in the artery. This stent is placed at the end of the catheter and helps in preventing opened arteries from collapsing.

6. TAVI (transcutaneous aortic valve implantation) 
It is a minimally invasive procedure where a new valve is inserted without removing the old, damaged valve. The new valve is placed inside the diseased valve.

7. Electrophysiology study and radiofrequency ablation 
It is a test to measure the electrical activity of the heart and to diagnose arrhythmia or abnormal heart rhythms.
