Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory

Contact Number: 711-41-41 loc 291


The Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory has just undergone a complete make-over and is now the newest in the country. It is capable of providing the sharpest angiographic images for all vascular territories from head to foot. It is also capable of providing electrophysiologic studies and radiofrequency ablative procedures for arrhythmias. The laboratory is also in the process of acquiring coronary intra-vascular ultrasound (IVUS) as well as Doppler flow wires for assessment of coronary artery lesions.

The full services offered are:

1. Coronary angiogram and angioplasty/stenting
2. Rotational atherectomy
3. Hemodynamic studies (right and left heart catheterization)
4. Swan-Ganz PA catheter insertion
5. Carotid angiogram and angioplasty/stenting with neuroprotection.
6. Renal angiogram and angioplasty/stenting
7. Lower extremity angiogram and angioplasty/stenting (iliac, femoral and below-knee arteries)
8. Subclavian angiogram and angioplasty/stenting
9. Superior/inferior mesenteric angiogram and angioplasty/stenting
10. Percutaneous mitral and pulmonic valvuloplasty
11. Closure of atrial septal defect (ASD)
12. Percutaneous balloon atrioseptostomy
13. Closure of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA)
14. Coiling of AV fistulas and vascular tumors
15. Stent graft closure of peripheral AV fistulas
16. Inferior vena caval (IVC) filter insertion
17. Temporary and permanent pacemaker implantation
18. Automatic implantable cardiac defibrillator (AICD) implantation
19. Cardiac resynchronization (biventricular pacing) therapy
20. Intra-aortic balloon pump insertion
21. Thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysm stent-graft insertion
22. Electrophysiologic studies and radio frequency ablation
23. Trans-Arterial Chemo-Embolization (TACE)
24. Coiling of intra-cerebral aneurysms
