Cardiac Catheterization

Cardiac Catheterization is the insertion of a catheter into a chamber or vessel of the heart under local anesthesia. This is done for both investigational and interventional purposes. Subsets of this technique are mainly coronary catheterization, involving dye injection into the coronary artery to assess the blockages, and catheterization of measuring pressures and oxygen in cardiac chambers and assessing the valves.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Percutaneous coronary intervention

A severely narrowed coronary artery needs treatment to reduce the risk of a heart attack. Various treatment options are:

  • Angioplasty: Dilatation of a narrowed blood vessel with a help of a balloon.
  • Stent: It involves insertion of a mesh or spring like metal device inside an artery at a site of narrowing after  angioplasty. This will prevent collapsing of the artery.
  • Bypass Graft Surgery: Using veins in the leg or artery in the chest to bypass the blocked artery for enough blood flow supplying the heart.
