New Clinical Offerings – Cardiology

With the recent arrival of our second board-certified cardiologist, Dr. Jessica Ward, the Iowa State University Cardiology Service is excited to offer minimally-invasive cardiac interventional procedures for small animal patients. These procedures allow correction of certain cardiac disorders by catheterizing peripheral vessels (either percutaneously or through small incisions).  Procedures currently offered include minimally-invasive occlusion of patent ductus arteriosus, balloon valvuloplasty for pulmonic stenosis, and transvenous pacemaker implantation for bradyarrhythmias.
