Cardiac catheterization

Cardiac catheterization is a procedure used to diagnose and treat cardiovascular conditions. During cardiac catheterization, a long thin tube called a catheter is inserted in an artery or vein in groin, neck or arm and threaded through your blood vessels to the heart.

This is done if a person has a severe heart problem or as a part of a procedure to correct a heart problem.

Risks of cardiac catheterization are:

  • Bleeding
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Allergic reactions to the dye or medication
  • Tearing the tissue of your heart or artery
  • Infection
  • Blood clots
  • Bruising
  • Irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmias)
  • Kidney damage
  • Damage to the artery where the catheter was inserted that may require additional attention (pseudoaneurysm)

Cardiology research Journals like Clinical Cardiology and Cardiovascular Medicine (CCCM) provides a global open access platform to put forth the ongoing research, reviews and techniques related to Cardiac catheterization.
