Delray Medical Center offers numerous diagnostic and treatment options for heart disease.
Minimally Invasive, Robotic-Assisted Procedures
Corindus Vascular Robotics CorPath System The CorPath System is used for robotic-assisted vascular interventions. These procedures involve placing stents in small arteries to improve blood flow.
ARTIS Pheno The Artis pheno is a new robotic C-arm angiography system for use in minimally invasive interventional procedures that improves flexibility in the operating room by expanding patient access, reducing radiation and maintaining an uninterrupted sterile airflow with antimicrobial surfaces.
Atrial fibrillation ablation Atrial fibrillation ablation involves threading a long, thin, flexible tube called a catheter into the heart through a blood vessel in the arm, upper thigh or neck. Live X-ray images are used to carefully guide the catheter into the heart. Several flexible tubes with electrodes on the tips are run through the catheter and placed in different small blood vessels in the heart.
Bioresorbable Heart Stent The recently FDA-approved fully dissolving stent disappears after the treated artery is healed. With the addition of this new treatment, we offer an option to those suffering from coronary artery disease that affects more than 15 million people in the United States and is a leading cause of death worldwide.
Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) This minimally invasive surgical procedure repairs the valve without removing the old, damaged valve. Instead, it wedges a replacement valve into the aortic valve’s place. Somewhat similar to a stent placed in an artery, the TAVR approach delivers a fully collapsible replacement valve to the valve site through a catheter. Once the new valve is expanded, it pushes the old valve leaflets out of the way and the tissue in the replacement valve takes over the job of regulating blood flow.
Taking Care of Your Heart with Advanced Technology
Abdominal Aortic and Thoracic Aneurysm Endograft Treatments The abdominal and thoracic aortic aneurysm endograft is developed to treat patients who have a bulge caused by the weakening of the walls of the aorta. Once in place, the graft reinforces the walls of the aorta, often shrinking the bulge and preventing the aneurysm from bursting.
TransCarotid Artery Revascularization Transcarotid artery revascularization (TCAR) is unique in that blood flow is temporarily reversed during the procedure so that any small bits of plaque that may break off are diverted away from the brain, preventing a stroke from happening. A stent is then placed inside the artery to stabilize the plaque, minimizing the risk of a future stroke.
MitraClip The minimally invasive MitraClip device is an option for patients suffering from mitral regurgitation (MR).
Electrophysiology Lab Your heart deserves advanced treatments and programs, and that’s just what you’ll find in our cardiac electrophysiology lab. We can treat a wide range of arrhythmia disorders, including atrial fibrillation, a leading cause of stroke, without the need for surgery. This can reduce recovery time and complications.
Percutaneous Ventricular Assist Device Ventricular assist devices assist the heart by helping the ventricles pump blood, easing the workload of the heart in patients with heart failure. Percutaneous Ventricular assist devices are used in patients undergoing high-risk angioplasty and also in patients who have acute myocardial infarction (heart attack) to support the heart and allow the heart to heal.
WATCHMAN Left Atrial Appendage Closure Device WATCHMAN™ is an implanted device designed to reduce the risk of stroke by closing off the left atrial appendage, which is known to be the main source of blood clots in patients with atrial fibrillation. The procedure is minimally invasive, and recovery typically takes about 24-48 hours.
Endovascular Surgery & Limb Preservation The experienced team of physicians and surgeons at Delray Medical Center are now able to offer even more minimally invasive vascular interventional procedures to patients, including specialized procedures that are designed to spare tissue, repair damage, and help maintain and restore function in limbs that would otherwise have to be amputated.
Open-Heart Surgery Open-heart surgery may be recommended if medical and non-invasive approaches are not an option for treating some cardiovascular conditions. We perform off-pump coronary artery bypass, graft surgery and more.
Helping You Navigate Your Healthcare Journey
Other Services and Programs
Patient Navigator Services A patient navigator’s primary role is to provide information that enhances your ability to make appropriate health care choices with assurance about risks, benefits and responsibilities.
Monitored Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation Phase 2 Cardiac Rehabilitation is available for patients who have recently experienced a heart attack, undergone angioplasty/stent procedure or cardiac bypass/valve surgery. In addition, certain individuals with stable angina, cardiomyopathy, dysrhythmias or a cardiac transplant may be eligible as well (insurance will determine eligibility).
Exercise Program Patients receive a customized exercise program based on each person’s individual goals and functional capacity. The program consists of one hour of monitored exercise, 2-3 days/week for several weeks. Telemetry monitoring is used during exercise to help ensure that the patient is exercising within a safe and effective target heart rate range.
