Interventional and Structural Heart Disease

Interventional and Structural Heart page

The Cardiac Procedure Center (catheterization laboratory) provides state-of-the art diagnostic and therapeutic procedures for patients with coronary artery disease and valvular heart disease. The physicians in the Cardiac Procedure Center have a long tradition of innovation and clinical excellence. The catheterization laboratory is one of the highest volume centers regionally, and has become a major referral center for complex coronary interventions when other therapeutic modalities have failed.

The Structural Heart Disease program within the Cardiac Procedure Center performs  transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and percutaneous mitral valve repair. The Structural Heart Program was the first program in the St. Louis metro region to perform the TAVR, and continues to be involved with the latest clinical trials that are evaluating new percutaneous therapies for valvular heart disease. The Structural Heart Program also performs interventional procedures for the treatment of some congenital heart defects.
