The Hybrid Cath Lab at Valley View​

Our Hybrid Catheterization lab offers patients a combined therapeutic surgical approach to their conditions and offers the most modern technology and the most outstanding skilled physicians there are. Diagnostic heart catheterization, percutaneous coronary intervention, robotic percutaneous coronary intervention, intra-aortic balloon pump, percutaneous left ventricular assist device (Impella) are done here. Pacemaker Implants, Implantable cardiac device implants, Biventricular pacemaker/defibrillator implants, diagnostic electrophysiology studies, Advanced radiofrequency (RF) ablations, Cryoablations, Laser ablations, Epicardial ablations are done here.

Cardiothoracic & Vascular Surgery – We offer treatment options via surgery to improve all vascular conditions and provide a better quality of life for all such as aneurysm repair, EVLTs, arterial bypass, vascular diagnostic imaging, and intervention. We also offer surgical treatment for conditions within the thoracic cavity such as lobectomies, lung biopsies, VATS (Video-Assisted Thoracic Surgery), thoracotomies, and mediastinoscopies.

Heart & Vascular Services

Our clinics are conveniently located throughout Western Colorado and provide a wide range of heart and vascular care.

Atrial Fibrillation

No matter what the type, paroxysmal, persistent or long-standing persistent, this service focuses on finding the best modality of treatment.

General Cardiology

From preventative care to maintaining a healthy cardiac profile, general cardiology can meet many patients needs to help them manage their cardiac health.

Vascular

This service is dedicated to the assessment, treatment and management of vascular disease such as Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms, Peripheral Arterial Disease, Peripheral Venous Disease, Varicose Veins, Carotid artery stenosis.

Advanced Lipid

Advanced lipids is for patients that need specialized lipid medication management, to get their cholesterol under control and decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease. This clinic also provides other necessary education on preventative measures to help keep cholesterol down.

Anticoagulation

Close monitoring of lab values and the adjustment of medications based on these lab values is how this clinic helps patients reduce their risk of stroke.

Cardiac Implanted Electronic Device

The focus of this service is to manage pacemakers, implantable cardioverter-defibrillators, implantable loop recorders, and heart failure devices to ensure that the required continuous review and monitoring of these devices is done.

Echocardiography Lab

We are the only echo lab to be accredited by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) in all three types of echocardiograms: Transthoracic, trans-esophageal and stress echocardiograms.

Cardiothoracic & Vascular Surgery

Cardiothoracic offers evaluations for lung cancer, lung cancer staging, lung cancer surgeries, chest wall disease, and other conditions of the thoracic area.

Lab and Imaging Technology

Ultrasound and CT Imaging in combined with the expertise of interventional cardiologists, surgeons, and the latest technology, allow for the best possible outcome in the shortest amount of time.

Bloodless Surgery

We are a bloodless surgical program thanks to the use of the special circuit that allows the incorporation of the patient’s normal blood volume and the need to not have to add any crystalloid prime. This technology allows the patient to undergo bypass surgery, without having to receive any blood.

Plumbing vs. Electrical

The Heart has both a plumbing and electrical system. We begin with the assessment of the patient and focus on discovering whether there is a plumbing or electrical issue, or both. Treatment options can focus on plumbing issues, electrical issues, or both. Our hybrid cath lab allows us to treat one, both, and even extend surgical treatment beyond that to include treatment for thoracic disorders, and hybrid procedures. Cardiothoracic: Treatment of Cardiothoracic Disorders Hybrid Cardiovascular Procedures: Heart Arrhythmias/Cardiac Device Monitoring – radiofrequency ablations, laser ablations, cryoablations, pacemakers, implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs), implantable loop recorders, cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT)

Plumbing

The plumbing of the heart involves the arteries and veins of the heart or arteries and veins that lead to the heart. Treatment Options: Coronary Artery Disease, Peripheral Artery, and Venous Disease

Electrical

The electrical system is the part of the heart that keeps it beating in rhythm. Treatment Options: Treatment of Heart Arrhythmias/Cardiac Device Monitoring Treatment of Coronary Artery Disease
