Diagnostic Cardiac Catheterisation

Cardiac Catheterisation is a diagnostic procedure to treat various cardiovascular conditions. Under this procedure a long, thin catheter gets inserted into the body via groin, arm or neck to locate narrowed or blocked arteries, measure oxygen and pressure, to check the functioning of right and left ventricles, to extract a tissue from the heart, diagnosing congenital heart ailments and also to study defects in heart valves.

It is also often used as a part of angiogram and angioplasty for interventional purposes.
