NEW CARDIAC CATH SUITES

Heart problems that once required open-heart surgery are increasingly being treated with minimally invasive techniques in cardiac catheterization labs. UC Davis Medical Center earlier this year added two cardiac catheterization labs to its adult and pediatric cardiology programs, making this valuable procedure more available to patients in the region.

The new facility is part of an overall expansion of the cardiology programs at the UC Davis Heart Center and UC Davis Children's Hospital. Initiated over two years ago under the direction of Reginald Low, professor and chief of the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, the expansion includes: new faculty, two dedicated electrophysiology laboratories, a special inpatient adult cardiology unit, all-digital echocardiography imaging systems and a joint pediatric cardiology program with UCSF that offers comprehensive care for children with congenital heart defects and other disorders.
