Cardiac Catheterization banner

A cardiac catheterization is a procedure that checks the blood flow in the coronary arteries, blood flow and blood pressure in the chambers of the heart, finds out how well the heart valves work, and checks for defects in the way the wall of the heart moves. During the catheterization a coronary angiogram is performed and it is used to find out if you have plaques in your heart arteries which are the make-up of coronary artery disease or atherosclerosis. If you have atherosclerosis, the catheterization can pinpoint the size and location of plaques and further recommendations can be made by your doctor before it causes damage to your heart muscle. If you have already had damage to your heart muscle, a catheterization can determine the best treatment to follow.

If you have any questions, you can consult with Dr. Jimenez or Dr Sanchez for an appointment.
