SUFFERN, NY – The expanded Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at Good Samaritan Hospital offers new imaging technologies that deliver sharp images along with anatomical guidance for physicians to use during interventional procedures. Use of this equipment allows for diagnoses that are more accurate, decreases patient discomfort and increases the potential for shorter hospital stays.
The guidance system in use Good Samaritan Hospital’s Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory automatically maintains precise alignment with the patient’s anatomy during the implantation of balloons, stents and other cardiac care devices. This precise alignment enables the use of minimally invasive surgical techniques during implantation, which lessens discomfort in the surgical area.
The image acquisition speed of the new platform also reduces radiation exposure, and
use of the system by Good Samaritan Hospital’s cardiac specialists assists with transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and mitral repair as well as stroke prevention alternatives and left atrial appendage closure (LAAC) procedures.
