Interventional cardiology

Thanks to the Clinique's comprehensive technical platform, specialised surgeons from the cardiology centre can perform a large number of vascular procedures.

Combined treatments for vascular pathologies

There are basically two types of vascular pathologies: dilatation of the arteries (aneurism and risk of rupture) and narrowing of the arteries (absence of tissue vascularisation, embolisms). The latter can cause claudication and intermittent pain in the lower limbs. The Clinique offers a combination of conventional treatment and endovascular procedures (use of prostheses or arterial dilatation, with a balloon or stent), or a combined approach (open-heart surgery and endovascular).  The most frequent ailments are abdominal aorta aneurisms and narrowing of the arteries in lower limbs or of the precerebral arteries (carotids).

Angioplasty and catheterisation

Angioplasty is only performed at the Clinique in the case of arterial problems. The treatment goal is to revascularise the affected arteries, usually by narrowing or by installing a balloon or stent catheter. These treatments may be done on an outpatient basis, or they may require hospitalisation. Endovascular treatment of arterial pathologies is also being developed.

Coronary arteriosclerosis is one of the most frequent cardiovascular pathologies and the main cause of heart attacks. Advances in angiography now permit systematic reliance on coronary bypasses and treating the coronary artery by angioplasty.   The latter intervention not only allows for shorter hospital stays than with conventional surgery, but it also requires no convalescence, leaves no scars and causes less discomfort.
