Laser and Rotoblator Therapy
Special procedures conducted in the Pilla Heart Center cardiac catheterization laboratory deliver treatments by using a thin, flexible catheter. Laser and rotoblator therapy may be used in conjunction with coronary angioplasty.
In the laboratory, our interventional cardiologists use tiny instruments equipped with diamond tips, or rotoblators. This grinds down fatty plaque deposits that may be clogging arteries, removing the obstruction. The Pilla Heart Center team also uses energy-producing laser devices to break up certain dangerous blood clots.
