This marks a significant milestone because the program equipped Frankfort Regional with the tools and training needed to prevent a heart attack before it occurs or stop a heart attack in progress using muscle-sparing, minimally invasive techniques. We could not be more pleased with the outcomes of bringing these services to Frankfort Regional. Through this program, our qualified staff and interventional cardiologists have performed a pro- cedure called percutaneous coronary intervention, or PCI, more than 100 times during the last year. With PCI, a balloon-tipped catheter is threaded through the vascular system to open a narrowed or blocked artery of the heart, all through a small incision. The results are saving lives and improving quality of life for people in our community. Turn to page 4 to learn more about the procedure. In closing, I want to wish you and your family a very healthy and happy holiday season from everyone at Frankfort Regional. We greatly appreciate the trust you place in us to provide you with medical care. Sincerely, Chip Peal CEO, Frankfort Regional Cover: Marty Denny, MD, and the cath lab team at Frankfort Regional Medical Center Every patient should know: I treat all patients as if they're part of my family. I'm honest, and I try to give patients as much information about their condi- tions as possible. Working in interventional cardiology is great because: It's fasci- nating. Interventional cardiology was in its infancy when I started my medical training. I was captivated by the idea that simply placing a balloon in an artery could prevent a heart attack or cardiac surgery. It is wonderful anytime I can prevent a serious medical event. Medical school, residency and fellowship hospitals: Indiana University (medical school) and the University of Louisville (internal medicine residency and cardiology fellowship) Specialty board certification: American Board of Internal Medicine (for internal medicine and cardiovascular disease) I enjoy working with the team at Frankfort Regional Medical Center because: It's exciting to get in on the ground floor with a new interventional cardiology program, especially in the capital of Kentucky. An individual should see a cardiovascular specialist when: He or she experiences chest pain or pressure, or shortness of breath. In my spare time, I like to: Spend time with my family, watch auto races, admire antique cars and learn about history.
