Our interventional cardiologists perform over 4,000 procedures each year in the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at Brigham and Women's Hospital, including angioplasties and outpatient procedures, such as diagnostic catheterization. These diagnostic and interventional laboratories at the Shapiro Cardiovascular Center utilize state-of-the-art digital equipment to acquire and process images, as well as the most current medical devices and technologies to treat cardiovascular conditions.
Through diagnostic catheterization, we can measure the blood flow and internal pressures of the heart, assess heart valve leakage or blockage, and with angiography, examine the insides of the arteries throughout the body for blockages.
We are committed to improving quality of care and service to our patients and offer state-of-the art interventional therapies for coronary artery disease, heart valve disease, peripheral arterial disease, structural heart disease, heart muscle disease (cardiomyopathy), carotid artery disease, and pulmonary embolism.
Members of the Brigham and Women's Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory have played a central role in developing new, cutting-edge interventional Boston cardiology treatments by leading various national and international clinical trials. In addition, as a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School, we are dedicated to training the next generation of health care professionals.
