Cardiac Catheterization

PERFORMED TO FIND OUT DISEASE OF THE HEART, MUSCLE, VALVES OR CORONARY ARTERIES


With this procedure, we examine how well your heart is working. A thin, hollow tube called a catheter is inserted into a large blood vessel that leads to your heart.

During the procedure, the pressure and blood flow in your heart can be measured.

Coronary angiography is done during cardiac catheterization. A contrast dye visible in X-rays is injected through the catheter. X-Ray images show the dye as it flows through the heart arteries. This shows where arteries are blocked.

Why do patient have cardiac catheterization?

A cardiac cath  provides information on how well your heart works, identifies problems and allows for procedures to open blocked arteries.

During cardiac cath your doctor may:

  • Take X-rays using contrast dye injected through the catheter to look for narrowed or blocked coronary arteries, known as coronary angiography or coronary arteriography.
  • Perform a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) such as coronary angioplasty with stenting to open up narrowed or blocked segments of a coronary artery.
  • Check the pressure in the four chambers of your heart.
  • Take samples of blood to measure the oxygen content in the four chambers of your heart.
  • Evaluate the ability of the pumping chambers to contract.
  • Look for defects in the valves or chambers of your heart.
  • Remove a small piece of heart tissue to examine under a microscope (biopsy).

Testimonials

It’s always the word of an experience the best advice. Here are some of them…


Amazing service!

Stingray sting. No idea what it was other than the pain, swelling and color were “not cool“ 3 hours afterward !! Went to PMH and received Fantastic Care. People oriented as you would expect, but genuinely so, Dr Alcázar and the Paramedic who saw me were insightful and acted immediately to resolve the pain, confirm no other damage or residual, and prescribe short term medication. A great, friendly and excellent place. Grateful !
