Technology

Hendrick Medical Center has dedicated time and resources to make our cardiovascular care program a regional provider for advanced heart and vascular treatments. Today, our facilities feature some of the most cutting-edge treatment technologies available, including:

  • Atrial Fibrillation Ablation: Heat is used to destroy tiny areas in the heart that are firing off abnormal electrical impulses and causing atrial fibrillation.
  • EKOS System: Lower doses of clot-buster medicines are delivered directly into the clots, while ultrasound pulses help the medicine permeate the clot and dissolve it fully and quickly.
  • Impella Device: This temporary ventricular-assist device is used for coronary intervention patients during high-risk procedures. The cardiologist and cardiovascular surgeons will determine patient eligibility.
  • Pantheris™ Lumivascular Atherectomy System: This recently FDA-approved treatment provides relief for patients suffering from the painful symptoms of peripheral artery disease (PAD). The real-time, image-guided therapy allows physicians to see and remove plaque simultaneously.
  • Synergy Drug Eluting Stent: This stent, made of bioabsorbable polymer, provides simultaneous drug and polymer absorption. Designed for faster healing, this new stent inhibits coronary blockages from recurring.
  • TactiCath Ablation System: During an ablation procedure, the TactiCath system gives physicians more control with a real-time, objective measure of the force that the catheter applies to a patient’s heart wall.
