Cardiac Care and Cardiac Catheterization
Monongahela Valley Hospital is committed to early detection of cardiac and vascular diseases through the use of noninvasive testing performed within our Cardiac Department and the Peripheral Vascular Lab.
A full range of diagnostic cardiology and vascular testing includes ECG, holter monitoring, echocardiogram, stress tests and doppler studies.
The Cardiology Echo Lab has achieved accreditation in the area of transthoracic echocardiology and transesophageal echocardiology by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Echocardiology Laboratories (ICAEL) which recognized the Lab for its commitment to quality patient care and its provision of quality diagnostic testing.
Our Cardiac Catheterization Lab offers the same technology and physicians from the Pittsburgh teaching hospitals. Most importantly, we offer the convenience and friendliness of a community hospital.
Also, offered are emergency therapeutic services, such as:
- Coronary Angioplasty, which restores blood flow to the heart by using a balloon catheter to decrease the blockage in the coronary artery
- Coronary Artery Stenting, which is a procedure by which a small sleeve is inserted into a strictured artery to restore blood flow to the heart
- The use of drug eluting stents, which is the insertion of a stent which emits a time release drug to prevent the artery from closing
Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation is for individuals recovering from a post cardiac event, angioplasty, stable angina or who suffer from a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. This medically supervised program is comprised of a 12-week rehabilitation program, behavior modification and education to help patients return to a better quality of life.
