Cardiac Catheterization, What is cardiac catheterization? American Heart Association:"This is a procedure done on the heart. In it, a doctor inserts a thin plastic tube (catheter) (KATH'eh-ter) into an artery or vein in the arm or leg. From there it can be advanced into the chambers of the heart or into the coronary arteries. This test can measure blood pressure within the heart and how much oxygen is in the blood. It's also used to get information about the pumping ability of the heart muscle."

Cardiac Catheterization, Cardiologychannelcom:"Cardiac catheterization involves passing a catheter (i.e., a thin flexible tube) through an artery or a vein to the heart, and into a coronary artery. This procedure produces angiograms (i.e., x-ray images) of the coronary arteries and the left ventricle, the heart’s main pumping chamber, and also can be used to measure pressures in the pulmonary artery and to monitor heart function, usually in critically ill patients (called right heart catheterization). In most cases, cardiac catheterization is recommended when a partial or complete arterial blockage is suspected. It is used to evaluate how well the heart is functioning and to obtain information about blockages."

Cardiac Catheterization (Cardiology Tests and Procedures), Torrance Memorial:"This procedure is nonsurgical and is performed under X-ray guidance in the Cardiac Catheterization Lab. A catheter (a long, thin, flexible tube) is inserted through an artery (blood vessel) in the thigh up into the heart. Occasionally an artery in the arm is used. X-rays (pictures) are taken of the heart and coronary arteries. The patient is given a mild sedative to help him relax but remains awake during the procedure to allow him to answer questions regarding his comfort level, any chest pain or shortness of breath. A small area of the groin or arm is shaved and cleansed where the catheter will be inserted."

Cardiac catheterization, YourSurgery.Com®:"Cardiac catheterization is a procedure usually performed by an interventional cardiologist, a heart specialist who specializes in inserting a catheter either into the chambers of the heart or into an artery feeding the heart. This test is frequently performed prior to heart surgery to determine if surgery is necessary, and, if so, what surgery is to be performed. The interventional cardiologist may also carry out additional interventions such as balloon angioplasty and stenting."
