Method of implementation

The procedure performed with local anesthesia, the patient has a contrast agent introduced with a special catheter through the blood vessels to the heart. The entire process is recorded with a special X-ray machine, an angiograph. Depending on the results of the examination, the experts diagnose and decide which procedure is beneficial for the patient. With a mild stenosis of the arteries, an appropriate medical therapy is administered. Incase of a significant stenosis, a decision on surgical procedure might made. This can include an endovascular intervention - a stent placement or a surgical procedure, namely, the coronary artery bypass grafting. The stent placement is a therapeutic coronary angiography, in many cases it is done immediately after the diagnosis as its follow-up. In our Center the coronary angiography is performed by qualified intervention cardiologists. During the procedure the patient is conscious, under the strict supervision of an anesthesiologist. Day-patient treatment is also possible for conducting the procedure, so that the patient goes home with the results already on the day of the admission. The frequency of complications and side effects is minimal. The procedure has no age restrictions.
