Heart and Vascular – Team Treatment
UAMS is pioneering a novel approach to the treatment of the entire spectrum of complex cardiovascular problems by integrating the skills and expertise of cardiologists, interventional radiologists, vascular surgeons and cardiothoracic surgeons in a single multi-disciplinary team.
The UAMS heart and vascular team handles the most complex cardiac, pulmonary and peripheral vascular medical problems in the mid-south.
As one of the few teams in the world with experience in percutaneous balloon mitral commissurotomy, our team recently saved the life of a young pregnant woman and her baby after she was transferred in severe heart failure in the fifth month of pregnancy.
Our surgeons are among only a few in the state who place aortic stent grafts for the treatment of high risk patients with aortic dissections and aneurysms.
And our interviewed radiologists are among the most experienced in the region treating a full range of complex pulmonary and peripheral vascular malformations that often exceed the capability of secondary and tertiary medical facilities. We welcome the opportunity to serve not only your routine patients, but the toughest patients and most complex patients as well.
