English term or phrase: Help in connection with a medical term
Could you please give me an idea of the concept and detailed meaning of this medical term - Interventional Catheterisation, which relates to the heart disease among children?

I believe that the translators having immense exposure in the field of medical translation would be able to throw some light on this topic.

Thank you

interventional cardiology; therapeutic applications of cardiac catheterization
Explanation:
Definitive therapy for major cardiac malformations typically requires cardiac surgery. In recent years, a growing number of lesions are now being corrected with ¶interventional ¶catheterization procedures (e.g., patent ductus closure, atrial septal defect closure, relief of pulmonary/aortic/mitral stenosis).

The development of ¶catheter-based therapies for the treatment of cardiovascular disease has led to creation of the field known as ¶interventional cardiology. In current practice, interventional cardiology provides a safe and effective alternative to conventional surgery for many patients with ischemic, valvular, and congenital heart disease (table 245.1).

Table 245.1. Therapeutic Applications Of Cardiac Catheterization
Treatment of coronary stenoses and occlusions
- Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA)
- Laser techniques
- Intravascular stents
- Atherectomy
Treatment of valvular stenoses
- Balloon valvuloplasty (aortic, mitral, pulmonic)
Treatment of congenital defects
- Atrial septostomy
- Umbrella closure of patent ductus arteriosus and defects in atrial or ventricular septum
- Coil closure of undesired collateral vessels

Interventional Cardiac Catheterization

What is cardiac catheterization?
Cardiac catheterization is a procedure that involves puncturing an artery and/or vein, usually located in the groin, so that a small, long, flexible tube (catheter) can be guided into the heart and major vessels around the heart.

The catheter is moved through the heart with the aid of fluoroscopy (x-ray machine). This is usually performed to help in providing a diagnosis of heart problems.

Interventional catheterization is a type of cardiac catheterization where actual treatments can be performed by use of specialized catheters.

These specialized catheters include balloon catheters that can open up narrowed valves or arteries and also catheters where devices can be deployed which can close extra vessels or certain \"holes\" in the heart.
