The Cardiac Catheterization Lab at Huntsville Hospital is one of the busiest cath labs in the United States with multiple cardiac catheterization labs staffed by a team of interventional cardiologists, radiology technologists, registered nurses and cardiovascular technologists dedicated to providing excellence in care. Diagnostic heart catheterization with digital optical intravascular imaging, pressure measurement and flow measurement is utilized with traditional fluoroscopy to guide the most appropriate intervention. Interventional treatment options include atherectomy, thrombectomy, balloon angioplasty, and/or stent placement. Patients undergoing high-risk coronary intervention can be supported during the procedure with left ventricular assist devices including Impella and TandemHeart.
Our team is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide emergent services for acutemyocardial infarction and other heart-related emergencies. Our goal is to serve the community with compassion while delivering world-class treatment evidenced by benchmarks consistently at or better than the national average per the National Cardiovascular Data Registry.
