Cardiac Cath Lab Offers Minimally Invasive Diagnostic Testing and Treatment

Experienced specialists at our cardiac catheterization lab use the newest equipment, techniques and devices. Catheter-based interventions include coronary angioplasty, treatment of heart rhythm abnormalities and advanced vascular diagnostic and therapeutic interventions.

We perform elective as well as emergency angioplasties. Scheduling an angioplasty can enable people at risk for heart attacks to receive this potentially lifesaving cardiac procedure close to home, before an emergency occurs.

Programs and Specialties We Offer

Clara Maass Medical Center offers a wide array of programs and specialties that include:

  • Cardiac Diagnostic Testing. Advanced technologies and techniques can detect a variety of cardiovascular conditions and thoracic disorders.
  • Cardiac Rehabilitation Program. Accredited by The Joint Commission (TJC), our outpatient cardiac rehabilitation program offers supervised lifestyle and exercise guidance to aid our patients in taking an active role in their ongoing heart health.
  • CardioMEMS Cardiac Monitoring Program. This program uses the CardioMEMS Heart Failure (HF) System, a miniature wireless monitoring sensor implanted in the pulmonary artery, to directly measure blood pressure and heart rate data. Patients can transmit this data from home to their health care providers, enabling them to stabilize the patient's blood pressure by managing medications effectively.
  • Cardio-Oncology Program. In collaboration with Rutgers Cancer Institute, we offer one of the few cardio-oncology programs in the region. For patients with pre-existing heart disease, we also take proactive steps to detect, monitor and treat cardiac conditions throughout a patient’s treatment and after therapy as part of your survivorship plan, using advanced imaging, electrophysiology and laboratory evaluations.
  • Heart Disease in Women. Heart disease among women is rising at a troubling rate. Our Heart Disease in Women Program offers a full range of diagnostic, treatment and support services for our female patients.
  • Heart Rhythm Disorders Program. This program provides innovative, multi-specialty care for patients with irregular heart rhythms, heart palpitations and rapid heartbeats. From evaluation to treatment, we pursue the best possible outcomes for every patient.
  • Thoracic Surgery. Our thoracic specialists perform advanced surgical procedures using minimally invasive techniques whenever possible to treat disorders of the chest, lung, esophagus, trachea, pleura (lining of the chest) and mediastinum (middle section of the chest).
  • Vascular Care. Our compassionate vascular surgeons, technologists and specialists use the latest high-definition imaging systems, testing options and equipment to diagnose and treat diseases of the blood vessels.

Clara Maass Medical Center, an RWJBarnabas Health facility, meets the highest standards in heart, vascular and thoracic research, prevention and education in the nation. Our multidisciplinary teams provide unmatched treatment options close to home.
