Diagnostic Cardiac Catheterization

Diagnostic Cardiac Catheterization is a minimally invasive procedure performed with the help of a catheter to assess the condition of the heart. The technique is used to determine coronary circulation, blood flow/pressure, condition of heart chambers and heart valve function.

It is frequently used to diagnose heart conditions such as stenosis(narrowing of blood vessel), thrombosis(formation of clot), occlusion(sudden blockage of coronary arteries) and atherosclerosis in coronary arteries. Blood samples from the heart, injection of dye for x-ray visualization, study of pressure in various heart chambers can also be performed.

The data collected from the procedure is used to determine the course of action to remedy the heart condition. Accordingly, medicines, surgery or a percutaneous coronary intervention may be prescribed.
