Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center offers a non-invasive screening designed for detection of coronary artery disease (CAD) before there are any clinical symptoms. The goal is to help those who are at a high risk for the disease, receive a diagnosis and treatment at an early stage when it is easier to treat and intervene.
Other types of tests we offer
30-Day Event Recorders
4-Hour Holter Monitors
Arterial Vascular Study Lower Extremity
Dobutamine Stress Test with Echocardiography Imaging or Nuclear Imaging
Your heart is technically one big muscle that pumps blood for the rest of your body. If there is a problem with that muscle, cardiac catheterization can offer a fast, less invasive way to fix it whether you’re in an emergency situation or scheduling a diagnostic procedure.
Some of the procedures offered in our Cardiac Cath Lab include
Coronary and left ventricular digital angiograph
Right and left heart catheterization
Rotational and directional atherectomy
Stent implantation thrombectomy carotid angiography and stenting
Electrophysiology studies are tests that help your doctor understand an abnormal heart rhythm or arrhythmia. In fact, we are one of the first hospitals in Florida to offer the CARTO 3 System, one of the most sophisticated tools to allow us a more precise image of the problem and shorter procedure times.
We’re the first in Palm Beach, Broward and Martin County to offer a minimally invasive procedure that combines the best of electrophysiology and cardiac surgery treatments to help restore normal heart rhythm for longtime sufferers of atrial fibrillation (AFib).
A minimally invasive treatment option for high-risk patients suffering from carotid artery disease. Ask your doctor if you are a candidate for TCAR, which helps repair clogged carotid arteries and reduce the risk of stroke.
This minimally invasive surgical procedure repairs the valve without removing the old, damaged valve. Instead, it wedges a replacement valve into the aortic valve’s place. The surgery may be called a transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) or transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI).
Patients with atrial septal defect (ASD)/patent foramen ovale (PFO) and history of strokes or evidence of heart failure are often eligible for percutaneous closure. Typically, these procedures are performed with conscious sedation and no need for general anesthesia or TEE. Patients are usually discharged home the next day.
AFib ablation involves threading a long, thin, flexible tube called a catheter into the heart through a blood vessel in the arm, upper thigh or neck. Live X-ray images are used to carefully guide the catheter into the heart. Several flexible tubes with electrodes on the tips are run through the catheter and placed in different small blood vessels in the heart. Sections of the heart are then mapped to locate abnormal tissue.
Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair procedures can be done surgically or through minimally invasive techniques. AAA procedures are used to treat an aneurysm (abnormal enlargement) of the abdominal aorta.
Percutaneous transcatheter paravalvular leak (PVL) closure is now a treatment option for patients who develop leaks around prosthetic heart valves. The procedure uses several types of vascular plugs which can be implanted via an artery or vein in the leg, and patients are normally discharged within the following 2 days.
Other Treatments Offered
Open Heart Surgery
Artificial Heart Valve Surgery
Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery (CABG)
Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO)
Left and Right Heart Impella Insertion
The Structural Heart Program
The Structural Heart Program at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center encompasses interventional technology as well as the latest in structural heart innovations. The variety of minimally invasive treatment options gives patients a wide range of personalized choices with the ability to make an educated decision based on their specific diagnosis.
Watching your heart health with advanced technology
Percutaneous Ventricular Assist Device (VAD) A Ventricular Assist Device (VAD) supports the heart by assisting the ventricles in pumping blood. Ultimately, this is designed to ease the strain on the heart in patients with heart failure. Patients who are enduring high risk angioplasty as well as patients who have acute myocardial infarction (heart attack) may receive Percutaneous Ventricular Assist Devices to strengthen the heart while it heals.
MitraClip (Transcatheter Mitral Valve Repair or TMVR) The MitraClip is a fairly new device designed to repair mitral regurgitation, a disorder of the mitral valve of the heart that prevents it from closing properly, in a less invasive way than previously available surgical options.
WATCHMAN™ The WATCHMAN™ implant is designed to act as an obstruction, preventing left atrial appendage blood clots from entering the bloodstream and blocking a blood vessel. With the advancements of WATCHMAN™, patients may be able to discontinue their use of long-term blood thinner medications.
