Mease Countryside Hospital gets green light for angioplasties

North Pinellas

Hospital gets green light for angioplasties

Patients living in north Pinellas and south Pasco counties can now get state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment of cardiac disease without traveling far from home. Mease Countryside Hospital has been given permission by the state of Florida to perform elective percutaneous coronary intervention — a minimally invasive heart procedure also known as an angioplasty. Coronary angioplasty is a non-surgical procedure that relieves narrowing and obstruction of the arteries to the muscle of the heart. The Mease Countryside cardiac care team is experienced in interventional cardiology with its cardiac catheterization and emergency angioplasty services. The hospital began providing emergency angioplasties in 2007 to patients experiencing the most critical type of heart attack. For more information, call (727) 725-6111.
