Interventional cardiology is a cardiology sub-specialty that deals specifically with systemic heart disease treatment based on the catheter.
A large number of operations can be performed on the heart via catheterization.
Specific treatments for interventional cardiology include angioplasty, percutaneous coronary operation, valvuloplasty, congenital heart defect reversal, percutaneous valve replacement, percutaneous valve repair, and coronary thrombectomy. The main benefits of using cardiology or radiology intervention approaches are the avoidance of wounds, pain, and lengthy post-operative recovery.
Interventional cardiologists in the U.S. and Canada require a minimum of seven years of postgraduate medical education and those who wish to specialize in multiple structural cardiac procedures need up to nine years of postgraduate medical education.
