Vascular Interventional Procedures

At Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center, our expertise extends to a range of Vascular Interventional Procedures aimed at addressing complex vascular conditions. These procedures are designed to provide effective solutions, improve patient outcomes, and enhance quality of life.

Dialysis Access Fistula/Graft

The Dialysis Access Fistula/Graft procedure is vital for patients with kidney failure requiring hemodialysis. It involves creating a connection between an artery and a vein (fistula) or using a synthetic tube (graft). This connection facilitates efficient blood flow during dialysis, ensuring smoother and more effective hemodialysis sessions while reducing complications like infections and clotting. It provides a reliable, long-term solution for individuals needing ongoing hemodialysis, improving dialysis efficiency and patient outcomes.


Atherectomy is a specialized and minimally invasive procedure designed to remove plaque buildup from blood vessels. This technique is particularly effective in cases where plaque obstructs blood flow or poses a risk of stroke. During an atherectomy, our skilled interventional team utilizes advanced devices to safely clear blockages from arteries, restoring proper blood flow and reducing the risk of vascular complications. Atherectomy plays a crucial role in maintaining cardiovascular health and is part of our comprehensive interventional procedures aimed at optimizing patient outcomes and improving overall wellness.


Rotoblader, also known as rotational atherectomy, is an advanced technique used in invasive cardiology interventions to address plaque accumulation in coronary arteries. This procedure involves a specialized catheter with a diamond-tipped head that rotates and disintegrates calcified plaque, reducing its size to microscopic particles. Rotoblader is highly effective in managing hardened plaque, improving artery patency, and promoting long-term cardiovascular health. Its precision in addressing plaque of varying consistencies makes it a valuable tool in restoring optimal blood flow and enhancing cardiac function. Different variants of atherectomy procedures, including rotational, directional, and extraction techniques, are tailored to individual patient needs and plaque characteristics for optimal outcomes.

Stenting and Angioplasty

Stenting and angioplasty are techniques used to treat narrowed or blocked arteries, including those in the neck (carotid arteries) and brain. During angioplasty, a balloon is inflated to widen the narrowed artery, while stenting involves placing a small mesh tube (stent) to keep the artery open. These procedures enhance blood flow, reducing the risk of stroke associated with arterial blockages.

Carotid Stenting

Carotid stenting specifically targets blockages in the carotid arteries, which supply blood to the brain. This procedure involves inserting a stent to widen the narrowed artery, improving blood flow and reducing the risk of stroke caused by carotid artery disease. Our interventional specialists utilize advanced techniques to ensure optimal outcomes for patients undergoing carotid stenting procedures.


Thrombectomy is a highly effective procedure for removing blood clots (thrombi) from blood vessels, particularly in cases of acute ischemic stroke. Using specialized devices, our interventional experts can navigate to the site of the clot and safely extract it, restoring blood flow to the affected area of the brain. This timely intervention is crucial in minimizing stroke-related disability and improving patient outcomes.

We prioritize swift and precise stroke interventions, utilizing cutting-edge technologies and evidence-based practices to deliver exceptional care to our patients. Our multidisciplinary team collaborates seamlessly to ensure optimal outcomes and support patients on their journey to recovery from stroke-related challenges.
