The Cardiac Catheterization (Cath) Lab at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center's purpose is to provide critical treatment and care for patients who need any or all of the lab’s wide range of diagnostic and interventional procedures.
At Utah Valley Regional Medical Center, three cardiac catheterization laboratories serve more than 3,200 patients each year. The placement of a stent, or, what looks like a small piece of metal mesh, acts as a permanent scaffold to hold the artery open. Each element of the Cath Lab has been designed to improve the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease in all its forms.
An atrial septal defect (ASD) and patent foramen ovale (PFO) are two types of holes in the heart.
Pulmonary function testing measures how well the lungs exchange air.
Ventricular Assist Devices include percutaneous ventricular, left ventricular, and Levitronix CentriMag.
Cardiac catheterization is performed to evaluate heart conditions.
