    The aortic valve regulates blood flow between the lower left chamber (left ventricle) of the heart and the aorta.… More

  • Patent foramen ovale (PFO) closure

    A patent foramen ovale (PFO) occurs after birth when the foramen ovale, a hole in the wall between the left and right atria or upper chambers of the heart, fails to close completely.… More

  • Angioplasty/percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI)

    Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), or angioplasty, is a procedure designed to reduce or remove blockages in the coronary arteries (arteries supplying the heart with oxygen).… More

  • Stents

    A stent is a small stainless steel mesh tube that behaves like scaffolding and gives a narrowed coronary artery support, thus holding it open.… More

  • Left atrial appendage (LAA) closure

    The left atrial appendage is a small pouch found in the top left chamber of the heart (the left atrium).… More
