Our Program

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in both men and women. More than 610,000 Americans die of heart disease each year — which equals 1 in 4 deaths. These include strokes, ruptured aneurysms and heart attacks. It is the mission of the USC Cardiac and Vascular Institute (CVI) to not only treat cardiovascular disease, but to successfully prevent it and rehabilitate those patients with a history of cardiovascular issues. Our physicians, researchers and dedicated team are committed to offering leading-edge interventions, research and treatments.

USC CVI at Keck Medicine of USC includes several invasive and noninvasive procedure laboratories. Our experienced interventional cardiologists use our well-equipped, modern interventional cardiac catheterization laboratory (commonly known as a “cath lab”) with a support team that can manage many different types of patients requiring interventional procedures. New therapies for the prevention of restenosis (the re-narrowing of a blood vessel), including local radiation therapy and local drug administration are available.

The interventional cardiology program offers:

  • Balloon angioplasty
  • Rotoblator
  • DCA
  • TEC atherectomy
  • Laser angioplasty
  • Stent placement
  • Balloon valvuloplasty for aortic stenosis
  • Pulmonic stenosis
  • Mitral stenosis
  • Coarctation of the aorta
  • Pacemakers — Implant studies, ablation

Our Approach

Our multidisciplinary approach allows CVI specialists to leverage their broad and deep expertise toward making superior treatment decisions for each patient. This allows everyone to provide individualized care with the most advanced technologies and therapies. It has led to excellent outcomes and patient experiences, both of which continue to improve. Procedures are supported by state-of-the-art screening tests, diagnostic imaging technologies and innovative non-invasive therapies.

At the USC Preventive Cardiology and Lipid Clinic, our goal is to help you reduce your risk for cardiovascular disease and heart attacks. We take a personalized approach to understanding your risk and will deliver a treatment plan based on the latest research and current treatment options. Our team will work with you to lower your cholesterol and change your risk factors for cardiovascular disease with a combination of medication, nutrition and exercise. Along the way, we will be your partner, providing ongoing counseling, support and monitoring.
