Minimally invasive day case investigation for coronary (heart) artery disease
What is an Invasive Coronary Angiogram?
It is a minimally invasive procedure usually carried out through the wrist artery under local anaesthetic and is generally a day case procedure. The procedure itself takes approximately 10-15 minutes in most patients. Dr Shand will go through the results with you as soon as the investigation is complete, allowing you time to ask questions and ensuring that you fully understand the next steps in your journey.
Why would you need Coronary Angiogram?
A coronary angiogram / coronary angiography is generally recommended when there is a high probability of coronary (heart) artery disease or when assessment of the coronary arteries is required prior to treatment of another cardiac condition such as heart valve disease.
