With access to the latest technology at The Mount Sinai Hospital and other local hospitals, Dr. Duvvuri handles the catheter-based treatment of coronary and structural heart diseases. In most situations, our physicians treat these issues by placing a catheter directly into the heart or within the surrounding arteries.
Dr. Duvvuri performs an assortment of interventions each year, including modern procedures to treat such conditions as coronary artery disease and aortic stenosis. Dr. Duvvuri has undergone training in the full spectrum of cardiac catheterization in an effort to provide the most cutting-edge treatments available.
The following cardiovascular issues can be treated using interventional cardiology techniques:
Aortic stenosis is a condition in which the aortic valve that regulates blood flow from the heart to the rest of the body narrows, decreasing blood supply to the body and increasing strain on the heart.
Coronary Artery Disease
Coronary arteries are responsible for supplying oxygen-rich blood to the heart. Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) develops when there is a buildup of fat and cholesterol deposits in these arteries, which partially or completely blocks the flow of blood to the heart.
Peripheral Artery Disease
Peripheral arteries supply blood to the outer areas of the body. Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) occurs when blockages develop throughout these arteries, most commonly in the pelvis and legs. This disease reduces the flow of oxygen-rich blood to your limbs.
