Catheterization

Catheter-based procedures belong to a subspecialty called interventional cardiology. Catheterization is a way to look inside blood vessels to check their condition and repairing any issues found. It may be used within the blood vessels of the heart (cardiac catheterization), body (peripheral vascular catheterization) or even the brain (cerebral angiography).

All catheter-based procedures at HCA Houston Mainland are performed by specially-trained healthcare teams led by an interventional cardiologist. Our state-of-the-art catheterization and digital X-ray imaging systems allow physicians to view even hard-to-see blood vessels with exceptional clarity.

The catheterization lab staff is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and works with our emergency room to quickly get patients who need it into the cath lab for diagnosis and/or catheter-based interventions, including:

  • Diagnostic arteriograms (cardiac and peripheral)
  • Coronary and carotid artery stent procedures
  • Peripheral stent
  • Pacemaker and ICD implants
