Intervention: Cardiac catheterization uses small catheters that are threaded into the coronary arteries to repair damage and remove clots that cause heart attacks. However, a risk of this procedure is the inside wall of the artery being torn which leads to the dissection. Often this requires emergency surgery to repair.
