The aim of cardiac catheterization is to study the heart and identify problems. These discoveries aid your doctor in determining if further procedures are necessary. The goal of angioplasty, atherectomy and stenting is to restore blood supply to your heart and improve your physical well-being.
In addition to their effectiveness, cardiac catheterization, balloon angioplasty and atherectomy are, in most cases, well tolerated and safe.
Now that you have viewed the presentation, it is your doctor's hope that you have a better understanding of the procedure, including its risks, benefits and alternatives. Based on your values and expectations, you and your doctor can now make a shared decision about your health care.
