Cardiac catheterization operations

Cardiac catheterization is a procedure that involves guiding a thin, flexible tube (catheter) through a blood vessel and into the heart to diagnose or treat specific heart conditions, such as blocked arteries or an irregular heartbeat. Cardiac catheterization provides doctors with important information about the heart muscle, its valves, and its blood vessels.

During cardiac catheterization, doctors can perform various heart tests, deliver medication to the heart, or remove a piece of heart tissue for examination. Some heart disease treatments, such as coronary angioplasty and coronary stent placement, can also be performed using cardiac catheterization.

You’re usually awake during a cardiac catheterization procedure, but you take medications to help you relax. Cardiac catheterization is characterized by a short recovery time and a low risk of complications.
