Left heart catheterization is the passage of a thin flexible tube (catheter) into the left side of the heart. It is done to diagnose or treat certain heart problems. Using this catheter, doctors can then do diagnostic tests as part of a cardiac catheterization. Some heart disease treatments, such as coronary angioplasty and coronary stenting, also are done using cardiac catheterization.
Why it’s done?
Locate narrowing or blockages in your blood vessels that could cause chest pain (angiogram) Measure pressure and oxygen levels in different parts of your heart (hemodynamic assessment) Check the pumping function of left ventriculogram Take a sample of tissue from your heart (biopsy) Diagnose heart defects present from birth (congenital heart defects) Look for problems with your heart valves
