Heart & Vascular Care Treatments
In this video Dr. Bethencourt performs an open-heart surgery to repair a leaking mitrial valve and tricuspid valve and to treat atrial fibrillation.
An implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is a small, battery-operated device.
We perform implant, extraction and replacement of pacing leads.
Left ventricular reconstruction surgery is performed to repair a left ventricle that has been damaged during a heart attack.
Maze surgery treats atrial fibrillation, a type of an abnormal heart rhythm, by creating a "maze" of new electrical pathways so that electrical impulses can travel easily through the heart.
A coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgical procedure that is performed without having the heart stopped and connected to a heart-lung machine.
Minimally invasive maze surgery, also known as mini-maze, is an advanced procedure for atrial fibrillation.
An artificial pacemaker is a small, battery-operated device that can be permanently placed inside the chest or attached externally for temporary use.
Peripheral angioplasty is a minimally invasive procedure where a catheter with a balloon tip is inserted into a peripheral artery. Peripheral stents are often implanted in conjunction with balloon angioplasty.
Peripheral vascular surgery can be performed as an endarterectomy procedure, a technique used to remove the plaque buildup inside of the blocked artery.
Atrial myxoma is a common type of benign cardiac tumor that forms inside the heart cavity, most commonly in the left atrium.
