Sample Cardiac Catheterization Report
I had nuclear stress study done & interpretation states: Sm reversible ischemia, inferior wall. Ejection fraction 51%. is heart cath needed?
This is a procedure where narrow, flexible tubes are inserted into a peripheral artery through a cut in the skin, and advanced to the heart. Dye can be injected through the catheters into the arteries of the heart to look for blockages ("angiogram"), or to measure pressure within the cardiac chambers ("right heart cath"). Arteries can be opened with balloons/stents at the ...Read more
Pressure measurement: Right heart catheterization is usually carried out to measure oxygen levels, intracardiac pressures, and cardiac output, as well as cardiac tissue biopsies. The right side of the heart is reached through the venous system (from the leg (femoral) or the neck (jugular) vein). A catheter (plastic tube) is used to carry out the above tasks and a bioptome is used to do the biopsy. ...Read more
Cardiologist suspected 2 major blockages in rca on CT angiogram. Heart cath done today totally clear. Md states could've been artifact? Cp still! ?
Chest Ct scan with trast,stress echo,3d echicardiogram,cardiac MRI with contrast & Ekg and blood test would this rule out CHD all normal?Done at mayo.
Transthoracic echocardiogram, chest x ray, renal sonogram, lots of blood work by hematologist, lupus test found nothing after splenic infarct. More test?
Would cardiac mri & mra without contrast, ecg, 48hr ecg, echocardiogram, treadmill ecg rule out the majority of heart problems in 25 yr old?
ABSOLUTELY: This is more than enough testing and most insurers would NOT cover all these tests! Hope this helps ...... ...Read more
Ecg , cardiac echo, heart enzyme , chest ct, cardiac angio ct, all ok.Still resting heart pulse 53-62.Increase when move.Exclude cardiac issue?
Echo results show borderline elevated pulmonary artery pressure: 31-36mmHg. Cardiologist did not mention and discharged. 19yo female. Risk of disease?
Trouble breathing, rapid heart rate, EKG revealed flattened t waves. Doc ordered echo consulted cardio who added nuclear stress test. Is this serious?
Would structural heart disease in 22 yr old be ruled out by echo, ecg, cardiac mri, stress ecg, 24h ecg, cardiac coronary anatomy mra?
Possibility of heart attack with normal: EKG, troponin, nuclear stress, cardiac MRI, echo, calcium score? I have chest / left arm pain. Need cath/CTA?
A lot : The electrocardiograph is one of the oldest tools used in the evaluation of the electrical and structural aspects of your hearts function. It is one of the primary tools used in the early management of acute heart attacks. It is simple, elegant and cost effective. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Spect images demonstrate inferior and apical reversibility from my nuclear stress test. Is a cardiac catherization must be done?
Not enough data...: Inferior ; apical reversibility means there is some ischemia in those regions. Without seeing the images it is difficult to tell how much. If there is very mild ischemia, some cardiologists may decide to do medical management (only medicines). If there is any significant amount of ischemia, cardiac catheterization is usually done. Again, it depends on the clinical scenario..Not enough data. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Pretty much all of: Them, with few exceptions.Get a more detailed answer ›
Cardiac MRI, CTPA, EGC 's, echo's, Chest X-rays, PET scan, blood tests, ECG stress test. All these tests, no diagnosis. Could something been missed?
Echo report: From the team that did it.Get a more detailed answer ›
Chest pain. Ekg, d-dimer, asa, chest xray, ESR "normal". Echo says "restrictive pattern lv diastolic fill". Anxious re risk of cad/athero & heart attack. ?
Ct scan of coronary arteries done in ER says 70% block or artifact. Follow up nuclear stress test 100% normal cardiologists says. What to think now?
Heart...: Cardiac ct is anatomic imaging. Nuclear stress is more functional imaging. Without seeing your ct it is hard to say but if there was a calcified plaque in the coronary, a blooming artifact is possible. If nuclear stress was normal, that's great. You may still have coronary disease which is not hemodynamically significant. You are young for significant heart disease. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
