Cardiac Catheterization

Cardiac catheterization is a procedure that is used to diagnose and treat many heart conditions. Here, a thin, long and flexible catheter is introduced into a blood vessel and threaded to the heart. Once it reaches the heart the doctor can use it to run diagnostic tests and run treatments.

Through a cardiac catheterization, the doctor can collect samples of blood from the heart, measure blood flow and pressure in large arteries/heart chambers and conduct biopsies. In case it is determined that a patient has a blockage, the doctor may even perform an angioplasty to clear it. Sometimes a stent may also be placed to widen the artery. Patients are usually conscious when the procedure is performed.
