Heart & Vascular Diagnosis & Prevention in Goldsboro, NC
At Wayne UNC, we are proud to utilize diagnostic cardiac catheterizations to help your doctor determine if there are any blockages in your heart. For this procedure, the cardiologist will insert a thin tube called a catheter into the arteries that feed blood to the heart. If a blockage is found, doctors can then perform a procedure to open the blockage.
Wayne UNC Health Care offers expanded cardiac capabilities through interventional cardiac catheterization, also known as percutaneous coronary intervention, angioplasty and stenting. During our Goldsboro angioplasty procedure, the cardiologist will inflate a tiny balloon through the catheter, widening the artery where plaque has narrowed it. The cardiologist may then insert a thin wire mesh, called a stent, into the artery to help prop it open and keep blood flowing to the heart.
Through a collaborative effort with North Carolina Heart and Vascular, patients can undergo interventional procedures without having to be transferred to another hospital. Our Wayne County cardiologists are also available on site to conduct procedures that, until recently, had to be performed at another hospital. With these expanded offerings, patients from Wilson to Rocky Mount now have access to many of the same offerings in heart care without having to travel far from home.
