For certain heart conditions, interventional cardiology may present a lower risk alternative to invasive surgical procedures. With the help of X-ray guidance, doctors can access the heart by inserting catheters and wires through arteries in the wrist or groin to fix a variety of issues, from blockages in coronary arteries to holes in the heart wall. While the field of interventional cardiology is not new, the procedures offered within it are constantly evolving. Continued refinements have led to better techniques and equipment and therefore, better results. Healthcare providers continually look for newer technologies and techniques to provide the most up-to-date care for their patients. There are a variety of cardiovascular conditions that can be treated this way. The most common ones include heart attacks, severe chest pain (angina) related to coronary heart disease, and other conditions that might affect a persons quality of life. It can also be used to treat or replace problematic heart valves, prevent stroke, fix aneurysms, and even insert pacemakers. Gary Fairchild from Wallingford, Pa. had a completely blocked artery and suffered a heart attack. Thanks to interventional cardiologist Muhammad Raza, M.D. he's here to talk about it today.

The mission of our program is two-fold: to train physicians in interventional cardiology and to improve patient outcomes through innovation. Physicians in the Interventional Cardiology Fellowship train at three inherently different clinical programs: a traditional university, a high-volume private institution, and a VA Medical Center emphasizing approaches to complex atherosclerosis. By combining experiences at these three sites, we hope to achieve the three goals of training: scholarship, innovation, and clinical experience. Each fellow's clinical training will be equally divided between the University of Minnesota Medical Center-Fairview, University of Minnesota Physicians Heart Care (Southdale Hospital), and the Veterans' Administration Medical Center in Minneapolis. Each fellow will become proficient in coronary intervention, including balloon dilation, atherectomy, and stent placement. In addition, fellows will gain proficiency in coronary physiology, intravascular ultrasound, coronary bloodflow measurement, ASD closure, and percutaneous wound closure. A smaller experience in valve dilation is available. Educational and research programs are essential to the training program. Fellows are expected to conduct and participate in research studies that will result in publication. Additionally, each fellow is responsible for presenting at conferences throughout the year, including at least one in-depth research presentation.
