The term angioplasty means using a balloon to stretch open a narrowed or blocked artery followed by inserting a short metal-mesh tube, called a stent, into the artery during the procedure.
Coronary angiography is a procedure that uses contrast dye, usually containing iodine, and x ray pictures to detect blockages in the coronary arteries that are caused by plaque buildup.
This involves taking pictures of the blood vessels supplying arms, legs or internal body organs. The technique is similar to coronary angiography. Any significant blockages involving internal organs, arms or legs can be treated with balloon and stent.
Cardiac catheterization (cardiac cath or heart cath) is a procedure to examine how well your heart is working. A thin, hollow tube called a catheter is inserted into a large blood vessel that leads to your heart. View an illustration of cardiac catheterization.
To monitor an abnormally beating heart, either one that beats too fast (Tachycardia), too slow (Bradycardia) or irregularly (Atrial Fibrillation). These abnormal heart beats are referred to as arrhythmias.
A pacemaker insertion is the implantation of a small electronic device that is usually placed in the chest (just below the collarbone) to help regulate slow electrical problems with the heart.
