Our doctors are researching the future of heart scans: 4D imaging. Not only is this game-changing technology fast and safe, it also shows blood flow and heart function with more detail and accuracy than previously thought possible. Now we can detect life-threatening conditions before they threaten your life.
Your heart's arteries may become blocked or narrowed due to a buildup of cholesterol, cells or other substances (plaque). Sometimes a blood clot can form or worsen, and it can completely block blood flow, causing a heart attack. Angioplasty is a surgery done to open blocked arteries and restore normal blood flow. It is not a major surgery and causes little pain.
Cardiac ablation is a procedure used to treat heart arrhythmia, such as rapid or irregular heartbeat. There are different types of cardiac ablation, including radiofrequency ablation, laser ablation and cryoablation.
During cardiac resynchronization therapy, a specialized biventricular pacemaker or implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is implanted under your skin, through a vein and into your heart chamber. It re-coordinates the movements of the left and right ventricles of the heart, monitoring and treating abnormal heart rhythms and improving its pumping ability.
Your coronary arteries can become narrowed by the buildup of plaque, which is an accumulation of cholesterol and other substances. The buildup can decrease the amount of oxygen-rich blood flowing through your arteries into your heart. Using coronary angiography, your doctor can determine how much of your arteries are blocked and how to work with you to develop the most appropriate treatment plan.
Electrophysiology (EP) is a cardiac specialty that involves the diagnosis and treatment of heart rhythm disorders. Our electrophysiologists are highly skilled specialists trained to diagnose and treat all types of heart rhythm disorders. That’s why patients rely on us for quality care from an expert. We are advancing electrophysiology with regionally and nationally recognized specialists who are committed to treating the full spectrum of heart rhythm disorders.
Heart disease is a leading cause of death in the U.S., and we're working hard to change that. That's why we specialize in early detection, treatment and prevention of heart disease.
After being diagnosed with heart failure by a cardiologist, our specialists can use a variety of treatments to try to control the condition and stop it from progressing. Treatments include medication, support devices and heart transplant.
Interventional cardiology refers to specialized procedures in which catheters are guided by X-ray to either your coronary arteries to help open blockages or your heart to make repairs. The initial procedure is similar to diagnostic catheterization, except that interventional cardiologists perform actual treatments.
There's a new generation of left ventricular assist device (LVAD) that provides full heart support for people with advanced heart failure. The Sandra Atlas Bass Heart Hospital is the first on Long Island to implant the new LVAD system. This isn't surprising, considering we have the largest and most successful heart pump program on Long Island.
