Retinal emboli is a common phenomenon in cardiac catheterization. In this study the investigators evaluate the incidence of retinal emboli post diagnostic and therapeutic cardiac catheterization over 300 patients. The incidence was 6.3% and had no clinical sequel on visual acuity and visual field.
Background and Purpose Cardiac catheterization may cause retinal embolization, a risk factor for cerebrovascular emboli and stroke. We describe the incidence of clinically silent and apparent retinal emboli following diagnostic and interventional coronary catheterization and associated risk factors.
Methods Three hundred selected patients attending a tertiary referral center for diagnostic and therapeutic cardiac catheterization were studied. Direct retinal examination and examination of the visual field and acuity were done before and after catheterization by a retinal specialist.

The aim of this study is to find out and record the indications for diagnostic catheterization as well as for interventional cardiac catheterization in A.U.C.H , and record the outcome in ...
This study is a prospective, randomized study of patients with single ventricle heart disease who are to undergo superior cavo-pulmonary anastomosis, or "Glenn" operation. Such patients ha...
Cardiac catheterization has traditionally been performed via access to the arterial circulation from the femoral artery located in the groin. As an alternative to this approach, the radia...
We will conduct a randomized controlled trial that aims to compare the incidence of contrast-induced nephropathy between transradial- and transfemoral-access cardiac catheterization.

Intracoronary imaging is an important tool for guiding decision making in the cardiac catheterization laboratory.
This study was performed to determine if the use of an accessory lead shield is associated with a reduction in radiation exposure among staff members during cardiac catheterization.
Unfractionated heparin (UFH) is purported to reduce the risk of radial artery occlusion (RAO) after transradial cardiac catheterization. However, the efficacy and optimal dose remain unclear. This met...
Procedures in which placement of CARDIAC CATHETERS is performed for therapeutic or diagnostic procedures.
The pressure within a CARDIAC VENTRICLE. Ventricular pressure waveforms can be measured in the beating heart by catheterization or estimated using imaging techniques (e.g., DOPPLER ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY). The information is useful in evaluating the function of the MYOCARDIUM; CARDIAC VALVES; and PERICARDIUM, particularly with simultaneous measurement of other (e.g., aortic or atrial) pressures.
Imaging of a ventricle of the heart after the injection of a radioactive contrast medium. The technique is less invasive than cardiac catheterization and is used to assess ventricular function.
Procedure which includes placement of catheter, recording of intracardiac and intravascular pressure, obtaining blood samples for chemical analysis, and cardiac output measurement, etc. Specific angiographic injection techniques are also involved.
Visualization of the heart structure and cardiac blood flow for diagnostic evaluation or to guide cardiac procedures via techniques including ENDOSCOPY (cardiac endoscopy, sometimes refered to as cardioscopy), RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; TOMOGRAPHY; or ULTRASONOGRAPHY.
