Coronary Disease Program
Coronary heart disease is a common term for the buildup of plaque in the heart’s arteries that could lead to heart attack. We were one of the first in the country and the only one in West Virginia to introduce new technology shown to protect patients from the risk of stroke during minimally invasive heart valve surgery, known as transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). We are one of the few programs in the United States (and the only one in West Virginia) offering cerebral embolic protection during TAVR called Protected TAVR.
The WVU Heart and Vascular Institute’s Structural Heart Disease Program is a leader in managing structural heart diseases, providing cutting edge surgical and transcatheter therapies for these complex conditions. We have a multidisciplinary team of experts to ensure our patients receive the most comprehensive care available. We also have technology and the most state-of-the-art facility in the region, including new cardiac cath labs and hybrid operating rooms, to make a rapid diagnosis and take quick, effective action.

Pediatric Cardiac Care at WVU Medicine Children’s
Telemedicine is a virtual consultation with a physician that provides access to evaluation and treatment for patients in remote areas. Many small, rural hospitals lack specialists in various disciplines, and telemedicine allows much of the needed care to be delivered through the use of simple applications that are similar to FaceTime or Skype with extra precautions built in to maintain privacy. We can utilize telemedicine to connect with patients who live far away or are too ill to travel.
The WVU Heart and Vascular Institute has taken steps to utilize this technology and bring world-class heart care to rural communities, helping rural physicians and hospitals deliver the highest possible quality of care to their communities.
Telemedicine services include consultations or follow-up for:
- Artery Disease
- Atrial Fibrillation
- Congestive Heart Failure
- Valvular Heart Disease
- Heart Rhythm Disorders
- Pre-Op Clearance
- General Cardiac Need Management
SMART Clinic Technology
The WVU Heart and Vascular Institute also offers technology-enabled smart clinics for cardiology patients, which bridges the traditional practice of medicine with the latest technology to provide patients with more personalized care.
WVU Heart and Vascular Institute surgeons perform the first completely robotic-assisted aortic valve replacement, mitral valve repair, and surgical ablation for atrial fibrillation.
The experts at the WVU Heart and Vascular Institute conduct ongoing heart and vascular clinical trials and research studies.
