Descriptions of Articles
  • Bleeding With Cardiac Catheterization
    Some people may experience minor bleeding with cardiac catheterization. As this page of the eMedTV Web site explains, bleeding problems often include blood clots, collection of blood below the skin, or blood vessel damage, and are usually temporary.
  • Blood Clots and Angioplasty
    While blood clots can be a serious complication of angioplasty, most blood clots that develop are harmless. This eMedTV page discusses blood clots and angioplasty, including information about how serious blood clots are treated.
