Cardiac Catherization Laboratory

 

 

 

 

 

The Cardiac Catheterization (Cath) Lab caters to patients who require cardiac catheterization to diagnose and determine treatment of symptoms like chest pain, shortness of breath, or when a myocardial infarction or angina is present. The patient with any of these symptoms is evaluated by a cardiologist using methods such as an electrocardiogram (ECG) and a cardiac stress test to recommend Cardiac Cath utilizing a multidisciplinary team approach. The Lab is equipped with X-ray angiographic equipment to carry out these procedures.


Procedures carried out in Cath Lab include:

 

*      Coronary Angiographies and Angioplasties

*      Valvular interventions like Balloon Mitral Valvotomies and Transcatheter

            Aortic Valve Implants (TAVI).

*      Treatment of various rhythm disorders (like SVT’s and VT’s) by

            Electrophysiology procedures.

*      Cardiac device implants like pacemakers and ICD and CRT implants.

*      Treatment of Congenital Heart Diseases like ASD, VSD, PDA and
