OHSU transplant results and outcome are the best in the Northwest, far exceeding the national average determined by the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients.
OHSU physicians performed the first angioplasty in the world. Today, we're still making history in the field of interventional cardiology and continuing our commitment to excellence. Every year, more than 2,000 procedures are performed in our cardiac catheterization lab, where patients receive individualized care in a technologically-advanced facility. During each procedure, a specially trained team of experts use catheters to determine how well blood is flowing through the heart, collect blood samples directly from the heart and correct some heart defects.
