Diagnostic Cardiac Catheterization
During this procedure, the location and shape of arterial occlusions are identified and diagnosed, and the acuteness and treatment options evaluated.
During this procedure, coronary arteries are unblocked and opened up by the removal of the occlusion. This can be achieved by a number of techniques:.
“Balloon” catheterization – P.C.T.A. – the use of a catheter to inflate a balloon at the location of the occlusion.
Stent catheterization – placing a metal coil in the location of the constriction.
“Spider stent” – a stent that gradually secretes medication to prevent further constriction and reduces the risk of a recurrent occlusion.
Cardiac catheterization is often performed immediately after a Diagnostic Cardiac catheterization procedure, to avoid the need to prep and anesthetize the patient a second time.
This is a treatment for arrhythmia using electrophysiology methods, carried out in the catheterization room under local anesthesia. The advantage of this treatment is the rapid repair of arrhythmia and return to normal activity.
