Coronary intervention is a minimally invasive method for the diagnosis and treatment of coronary heart disease. It includes coronary angiography for diagnosis of coronary heart disease, percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty and stent implantation.
Neurointerventional therapy is a method to treat neck or intracranial vascular diseases by delpoying specialized catheter through femoral artery (or femoral vein) puncture. Different from traditional craniotomy, neural interventional therapy offers minimal invasiveness, which has the characteristics of no craniotomy, minor injury and quick recovery for patients.
Peripheral intervention refers to the diagnosis or treatment of the blood vessels except intracranial blood vessels and cardiac coronary blood vessels by vascular puncture under the guidance of medical imaging equipment, excluding the diagnosis or treatment of neoplastic diseases by vascular approach.
