About the department

The department of clinical and interventional cardiology at Teknon Medical Center Barcelona offers patients all diagnostic and therapeutic options in the field of coronary pathology and the field of structural cardiac pathology. The department treats heart diseases with the help of catheters (without surgery) and in the least invasive way. The interventional cardiology team uses a multidisciplinary approach to develop a treatment plan to provide you with the best possible care. The department has modern intravascular ultrasound, CT angiography, and digital subtraction angiography devices. Most interventional procedures are performed as a part of open surgery in cooperation with the cardiac surgery department. Highly qualified surgeons, together with nurses, take care of the patient's comfortable stay in the hospital.

The department's specialists can use interventional methods to close septal defects and open arterial ducts, to balloon and stent stenotic vessels. Interventional cardiologists perform delicate, life-saving procedures using cutting-edge technology, the latest techniques, and comprehensive advances in interventional medicine, such as cardiac catheterization, transcatheter aortic valve replacement, and mitral valve replacement and repair.
