An interventional cardiologist is a cardiologist specialized in diagnosing and treating cardiovascular diseases, congenital (present at birth) and structural heart conditions through catheter based procedures, such as angioplasty and stenting.
If your cardiologist advises you to undergo an angiogram test to understand in more detail about the blockages in your arteries, then you will have to visit an interventional cardiologist for the same.
Interventional Cardiology is the branch of medicine within the subspecialty of cardiology that uses diagnostic techniques to evaluate the blood pressure and flow in the coronary arteries and chambers of the heart. It also covers the technical procedures and medications to treat abnormalities that impair the function of the cardiovascular system.
An interventional cardiology provides treatment options for various heart and vascular conditions, such as:
