  • Congestive heart failure
  • Degenerative aortic bioprosthesis

Treatments & Services

Our innovative procedures include:

  • Transcatheter aortic valve replacement
  • Balloon valvuloplasty
  • Mitral valve repair with the MitraClip
  • Septal defect and patent foramen ovale closure
  • Left atrial appendage closure and ligation
  • Coronary fistula closure
  • Transcatheter paravalvular leak closure
  • Ongoing research trials for valvular and structural heart conditions

Hybrid Operating Room

Structural Heart procedures are performed in Terrebonne General’s Hybrid Operating Room (OR). This advanced procedural space combines a traditional operating room with an image guided interventional suite allowing for highly complex, advanced surgical procedures. Not only are the rooms combined but your care teams work together to form a multi-disciplinary team prepared to meet the complex needs of our cardiology patients.

The ability to perform advanced imaging studies in the same surgery suite eliminates the need to move patients during a procedure and reduces the risk of infection. Patients also benefit by shorter procedure times, less radiation used during imaging, reduced need for intensive care, shorter hospital stays, and faster recovery. Terrebonne General’s Hybrid OR suite also will be the surgical site for more groundbreaking clinical trials, including percutaneous heart valve replacement, carotid artery stenting, and lower extremity revascularization.
