Endovascular Surgery

Our endovascular team focuses on the diseases of the arteries and veins throughout the body. Often vascular surgeons are working to save limbs for those with diabetes or opening up the arteries into the brain to prevent stroke.

Common endovascular procedures include:

  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm or (AAA) repair
  • Endoluminal AAA repair (EVAR)
  • Carotid endarterectomy
  • Carotid stenting Sclerotherapy
  • Endovascular intervention (Angioplasty/Stenting/Athrectomy)
  • Laser ablation
  • Ambulatory phlebectomy
  • Acute limb ischemia
  • Balloon embolectomy
  • Thrombectomy
  • Thrombolysis
  • Thoracic stent graft

Technology

Kaweah Delta's Hybrid Endovascular Operating Room gives surgeons the ability to perform traditional, open surgery and minimally invasive, endovascular procedures on the same patient, at the same time, in the same place. Our OR technology provides surgeons continuous 3-D imaging and the opportunity to perform intricate procedures on people with severe, life-threatening conditions, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In addition to state-of-the-art surgical equipment, the hybrid OR also contains advanced imaging equipment needed for minimally invasive techniques – angiography, CT scans and MRI – providing clear and accurate visualization of small vessels, stents, catheters and guide wires during complex procedures.

Having the ability to perform imaging studies in the same room eliminates the need to move patients during a procedure and reduces the risk of infection.

Patients also benefit by:

  • Shorter procedure times
  • Less radiation used during imaging
  • Reduced need for ICU care
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Faster recovery

Non-Invasive Cardiology

An important component of Kaweah Delta's Cardiovascular Center is diagnostic testing. The Non – Invasive Cardiology team performs all aspects of non-invasive testing including:

  • Cardiac and Vascular ultrasound 
  • Adult echocardiograms
  • Pediatric echocardiograms
  • Fetal echocardiograms
  • Transesophageal (TEE) echochardiograms
  • Stress echocardiograms
  • Carotid ultrasound
  • Lower and upper extremity venous imaging
  • Lower and upper extremity arterial imaging;
  • Vein mapping

Non-Invasive cardiac testing

  • Holter Monitoring
  • Exercise Stress Test
  • Tilt Table Testing
  • Transtelephonic Pacemaker follow up
