Research and Clinical Trials for Cardiac Catheterization
Cardiac catheterization research and clinical trials have continued to improve the procedure, reduce complications and expand the uses. The procedure was first developed through research on minimally invasive procedures. It is commonly used to diagnose conditions and biopsy heart tissue, but through research, scientists have developed more treatment capabilities.
Ongoing research and clinical trials improve the effectiveness of the procedure and reduce the side effects. For instance, the stenting and angioplasty procedures are done to reduce the risk of plaque breaking off and causing stroke or heart attack. Doctors have developed medications and intravenous drugs that prevent plaque and blood clots from blocking the artery.
