The Sanford Cardiac Cath Lab is designed to diagnose and treat patients with heart disease, as well as patients with blockages in kidney, brain, arm and leg arteries. Equipped with state-of-the-art digital imaging and treatment technology, the cath lab is used to treat emergency patients in the midst of a heart attack as well as patients scheduled for diagnostic and treatment procedures. These include:
Sanford Health's catheterization statistics exceed national averages on nearly every measurement. For example, the lab has achieved a 98 percent success rate with PTCA/Stent procedures, a 4.2 percent clinical restenosis rate, an overall complication rate of 0.9 percent and less than 1 percent of our interventional procedures converted to coronary bypass surgery.
Sanford Health was recently recognized for excellence in cardiac care risk-adjusted healthcare outcome data analysis. For example, for heart attack care, Sanford Health performed 25 percent better than predicted based upon in-house and six-month post-hospital stay mortality rates.
Cardiac catheterization is a common, relatively painless, nonsurgical procedure that can help your doctor diagnose a heart problem. In some cases, catheterization can be used to treat heart disease, as well.
To perform the procedure, your cardiologist inserts a long, flexible tube called a catheter into a blood vessel and gently guides it toward your heart. Once the catheter is in place, X-rays and other tests are done to help your doctor evaluate how well your heart is working.
