Cardiac Catheterization

Conditions Related to Cardiac Catheterization

Several heart conditions require intervention when medications and other therapies do not reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke. Related conditions to cardiac catheterization are usually life-threatening conditions that are diagnosed or suspected using imaging or other diagnostic tests.
 
Frequently, the related conditions may be treated with open-heart surgery, which very often is a risky procedure. Cardiac catheterization can diagnose and treat many of these conditions with less complications, reduced pain and a faster recovery time.
 
These are some of the related conditions to cardiac catheterization:
  • Valvular heart disease
  • Cardiomyopathy (enlarged heart caused by weakened heart muscle)
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Congenital heart conditions in infants/children
  • Atherosclerosis (plaque clogs the arteries)
  • After heart attack, heart bypass surgery and coronary angioplasty to assess blood flow
  • Pulmonary hypertension
 
If you suffer from these related conditions, schedule an appointment at Florida Hospital to determine if cardiac catheterization is a treatment option for your condition.
