  1. Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair

    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 Procedure

    Amputation is the surgical removal of a leg or arm, or a part of one - such as a toe, finger, foot, or hand - usually as a result of injury, disease, or infection.

  3. Blood Test

    Your doctor might order a blood test to find out if you are sick, if your body is responding to an allergy, or if you are at risk for certain health conditions.

  4. Cardiac Catheterization Procedure
  5. Carotid Artery Duplex Scan

    A carotid artery duplex scan is used to assess blockage or narrowing of the carotid arteries of the neck and/or the branches of the carotid artery.

  6. Carotid Endarterectomy / Carotid Angioplasty with Stenting
  7. Catheter Ablation

    Also known as a cardiac ablation or radiofrequency ablation, this procedure guides a tube into your heart to destroy small areas of heart tissue that may be causing your abnormal heartbeat.

  8. Chest X-ray

    A chest X-ray is used to examine the chest and the lungs and other organs and structures located in the chest.

  9. Computed Tomography (CT or CAT) Scan of the Chest

    CT/CAT scans are more detailed than standard x-rays and are often used to assess the organs of the respiratory and cardiovascular systems,and esophagus, for injuries, abnormalities, or disease.

  10. Computed Tomography Angiography (CTA)

  12. Dobutamine Stress Echocardiogram
  13. Echocardiogram

    An echocardiogram is a procedure in which ultrasonic sound waves are used to assess the heart's function and structures.

  14. Electrocardiogram

    An electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) is a simple and fast procedure that is used to evaluate the electrical activity of the heart, which is measured in "waves." Variations in the waves may indicate problems with the heart.

  15. Electrophysiological Studies

    When a problem develops with the heart’s rhythm, there may or may not be any symptoms. An electrophysiological study (EP study) is an invasive procedure that tests the heart's electrical system to determine the cause of the dysrhythmia.
