  1. Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair Podcast

    Detailed information on abdominal aortic aneurysm repair and endovascular aortic aneurysm repair, including the reasons and preparation for the procedures, risks of the procedures, how the procedures are performed, after care, an anatomical illustrations of the anatomy of the aorta, an infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm, types of aneurysms, and illustrations of abdominal aortic aneurysm open repair and endovascular repair

  2. Amputation Podcast

    Detailed information on amputation, including the reasons and preparation for the procedure, risks of the procedure, how the procedure is performed, and after care.

  3. Cardiac Catheterization Podcast

    Cardiac catheterization is a specialized procedure in which a long, flexible tube (catheter) is inserted into a vein and guided into the heart, allowing a close look at the structures inside.

  4. Carotid Artery Duplex Scan Podcast

    This scan is a type of ultrasound used to assess the blood flow of the carotid arteries and diagnose carotid artery disease. These arteries are the main blood vessels carrying oxygen to the brain.

  5. Carotid Endarterectomy / Carotid Angioplasty with Stenting Podcast

    These procedures are used to treat carotid artery disease. One removes plaque that has built up in an artery. The other inflates a tiny balloon in an artery to compress the plaque.

  6. Chest X-ray Podcast

    A chest X-ray is used to examine the chest and the organs and structures located in the chest. Chest x-rays may be used to assess the lungs and the heart.

  7. Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery (CABG) Podcast

    One way to treat blocked or narrowed arteries is to bypass the blocked portion of the coronary artery with another piece of blood vessel.

  8. Dobutamine Stress Echocardiogram Podcast

    This procedure may be used to assess the heart muscle under stress. Dobutamine is a medication that causes the heart to beat faster and will mimic the effects of exercise on the heart.

  9. Echocardiogram Podcast

    An echocardiogram can measure heart structures, such as the heart's pumping chambers, the size of the heart itself, and the thickness of the heart walls.

  10. Electrocardiogram Podcast

    Electrodes are placed on the chest, arms, and legs. When the electrodes are connected to an ECG machine, the electrical activity of the heart is measured and interpreted.

  11. Electrophysiological Studies Podcast

    An electrophysiological study tests the heart's electrical system. A small, plastic catheter is inserted through a vein in the groin and is threaded into the heart.

  12. Exercise Echocardiogram Podcast

    Detailed information on exercise echocardiogram, including the reasons and preparation for the procedure, how the procedure is performed, and after care

  13. Exercise Electrocardiogram Podcast

    An exercise ECG can assess the heart's response to stress or exercise. The ECG is monitored while a person is exercising on a treadmill or stationary bike.

  14. Femoral Popliteal Bypass Surgery Podcast

    Detailed information on femoral popliteal bypass surgery and percutaneous transluminal angioplasty of the femoral artery, including the reasons and preparation for the procedures, risks of the procedures, how the procedures are performed, after care, and anatomical illustrations of the circulation of the legs and femoral popliteal occlusion.

  15. Heart Transplantation Podcast

    Detailed information on heart transplantation, including the reasons and preparation for the procedure, how the procedure is performed, after care, and an anatomical illustration of the anatomy of the heart, anterior view.
