Advanced heart care at St. Mark’s

The nationally recognized cardiac specialists at St. Mark’s Hospital are specially trained to provide advanced treatments for patients with heart conditions. The solutions they offer include life-changing surgeries and innovative procedures.

Here is an example: Several of our heart surgeons offer the Left Atrial Appendage Closure procedure to patients with atrial fibrillation. This procedure reduces the risk of blood clots that cause strokes in patients A-fib. To perform it, surgeons implant a device in the heart that permanently closes off a small pouch (the left atrial appendage), keeping blood clots from entering the bloodstream and traveling to the brain. Several companies provide these devices including Amulet, Coherex Wavecrest, and Watchman.
