In brief: Artery and valvular

Cardiac catheterization involves evaluating the anatomy and pressures of the heart as well as the function.
Thus, we can see blocked arteries, look at malfunctions of the various valves, investigate the overall function of the heart muscle, and see the results in pressures in the lungs. We can also see if there are abnormal connections between the hear chambers.
