In brief: 30min-1hr

A straight forward diagnostic angiogram will take anywhere from 30min to 1hr. If a carotid stent is being placed it will take between 1hr and 3hrs depending on complexity.
The longest waiting period is usually after the procedure where patients have to lie flat for ~4hrs to allow the artery in the groin that wa punctured to heal.
