Types of Heart Procedures

- Angioplasty and Stents
- Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting
- Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator
- Catheterization and Angiography
These procedures, although routine, can go wrong if medical professionals are negligent in their duties. Before, during, and after such procedures, the health of patients is in the hands of doctors and nurses. Medical professionals who fail to uphold their duties should be held accountable.
