Giving information regarding angiography and angioplasty through the wrist, Dr. Sandeep Chopra, Consultant Cardiologist said, “When a patient has heart problems, diagnosing the cause can be a long, uncomfortable process.” Cardiac catheterization is a method doctors use to perform many tests and procedures available for diagnosing and treating coronary artery disease. The method involves threading a long, thin tube (called a catheter) through an artery or vein in the leg or arm and into the heart.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr.Paramdeep Sandhu, Consultant Cardiologist said, “Patients who have had an angiogram or angioplasty using the groin approach are very familiar with lying flat in bed for what seemed like an eternity, but patients who have had the same procedure using the wrist approach have a very different experience.
