Cardiologists Treating Cardiovascular Conditions
Cardiac Solutions is here for you if heart disease has disrupted your life to the point of requiring cardiac surgery. Our team of experienced and compassionate cardiologists has been serving patients in Peoria since 1984. We hold ourselves to a higher standard and continue to study newer and more advanced procedures to make your life a little easier through surgical methods. We pride ourselves on practicing innovative treatments while providing personalized, evidence-based care in the West Valley. We rely on diagnostic testing to ensure the procedure you are getting is right for you. Our team also wants you to be educated on the procedures you may need to go through while in our care. Learn more about our surgical options and contact us if you have any questions.
Coronary Artery Disease
When you have a plaque that builds up inside the arteries that supply your heart with oxygen-rich blood, you’ll need to have the plaque removed quickly to prevent any further issues from occurring. At Cardiac Solutions, our catheterization techniques help clear those blocked or semi-blocked passages.
This procedure uses an X-ray image to see your heart’s blood vessels to find out if there’s a restriction in blood flow to the heart.
This medical test detects coronary artery disease among other heart conditions by checking for blood flow in the coronary arteries as well as blood flow and blood pressure in the chambers of the heart and heart valves, as well as wall motion abnormalities.
This non-surgical procedure uses a catheter to place a stent. That small structure opens up blood vessels in the heart that have been narrowed from plaque buildup, or atherosclerosis.
This test finds out how well your heart is pumping by measuring the blood pressure in your heart as well as in the main blood vessels in your lungs. This test can also be referred to as pulmonary artery catheterization.
Peripheral Artery Disease
Our experienced team can determine if your vessel problems are from fatty deposits or whether the vessels have become narrow. Peripheral Artery Disease causes issues with extremities, most often the legs, preventing them from getting enough blood flow to perform daily tasks. If your vessels go untreated, they can become so narrow that they cannot properly deliver blood to your brain and lungs.
Peripheral Angiogram and Stenting
This procedure opens narrowed or blocked blood vessels so blood can reach your legs. Fatty deposits inside your arteries can build up, blocking blood flow. A stent can be used to keep the artery open.
Electrophysiology is the study of the electrical properties of the heart. Our practice uses many different tests and cardiac surgeries to gather information about your heartbeat. We can determine why it’s irregular, what is causing the irregularity, and how we can adequately get it beating healthy again.
Heart cells that create an irregular heartbeat are disabled, restoring normal heart rhythms during this minimally invasive procedure.
This procedure treats irregular heart rhythms, disrupting faulty electric signals in the heart.
This electronic, battery-powered device is surgically implanted under the skin and has two or three wires positioned to help your heartbeat in a more balanced way.
This device is implanted inside the body and can pace the heart as well as correct many life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias.
This medical procedure converts abnormally fast heart rates or other cardiac arrhythmias to a normal rhythm by the use of electricity or medication.
A pacemaker is a medical device that uses electrical impulses to cause your heart muscle chambers to contract and pump blood. It replaces or regulates the function of the electrical conduction system of your heart.
This small implantable device sends electrical pulses to your heart when it gets too slow. There are no surgical pockets or insulated wires as the device is placed directly in the heart.
This implantable device records your heart rhythm for up to three years, allowing for long-term monitoring.
These studies test the electrical activity of your heart to find out where an arrhythmia is coming from.
This minimally-invasive procedure involves a thin, flexible tube being inserted into a blood vessel in the neck or leg.
This device is implanted into the pulmonary artery and measures changes in pulmonary artery pressure.
These surgical procedures help keep your veins clear so that clots get stopped or trapped before they reach the heart or lungs. If those clots were to reach those areas of the body, it could result in death by pulmonary embolism. After the threat of clot is gone, it can be removed. Our team will suggest blood-thinning agents assist once the filter is removed.
Inferior Vena Cava Filter Placement
An Inferior Vena Cava Filter Placement filter is placed using a small incision in a vein in the neck or groin. A catheter is inserted into the vein and gently moved to your IVC.
Structural Heart Disease
Thankfully, many heart diseases are discovered at birth. But, some will develop into adulthood. While there are many different diseases that we run cardiac diagnostics for, most of them involve the heart tissue and valves. Our team is very familiar with these issues and will be sure to develop your personal care plan appropriately.
This common abnormality occurs in about one-fifth to one-third of the population. Closure of the foramen ovale occurs after birth for most infants, but sometimes a procedure is necessary.
A hole between the two upper chambers of the heart is called an atrial septal defect. Doctors place a special device in your child’s heart to close the hole by catheterization.
This procedure treats mitral regurgitation without requiring open-heart surgery.
This small implant is placed into the heart to reduce the risk of stroke for patients with atrial fibrillation.
Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement
If you have a weak or damaged aortic valve, it’s not necessary to remove it completely. Our team can place a new valve within the old, impaired valve. This procedure helps reduce the risk of death and offers help to people who cannot go through the general cardiac surgery options. It may also be used if you’ve had an aortic valve replacement before and need a new one because it no longer works.
