Diagnostic catheterization of the heart
Diagnostic catheterization involves inserting a thin, flexible plastic tube through the artery into the heart. With this procedure, it is possible to carry out various examinations, for example, to assess coronary circulation or to measure pressure and speed of blood flow.
This procedure is suitable for examination in such heart diseases:
- Diseases of valves;
- Congenital heart defects;
- Heart muscle diseases;
- Myocardial infarction and others.
Benefits of diagnostic cardiac catheterization
Diagnostic cardiac catheterization is a highly informative procedure that allows you to obtain all the necessary information to prescribe optimal treatment with minimal risks for the patient. Also, diagnostic catheterization is a rather sparing procedure prescribed to children with congenital heart defects. The only disadvantage of the system is the risks (arrhythmia, puncture of the heart, the reduced blood supply of the brain, etc.). It is for this reason that it should carry out in clinics where the best specialists work, and only expensive equipment used.
