A minimally invasive diagnostic procedure, left heart ventricular angiography is a type of cardiac catheterization. It is used to diagnose serous heart conditions by allowing doctors to visualize the way blood flows through the heart. The minimally invasive procedure is associated with low risk, minimal pain and has a fast recovery period. The majority of patients go home the same day without any complications.

During left ventricular angiography procedure, doctors used a specialized instrument called a catheter. It is a small tube that is threaded from a tiny incision in the arm or groin, through blood vessels and into the heart. Once in the heart, surgeons inject a dye that makes it easier to see the structure of the heart on X-ray.
