Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory
For more information, please call:
In a cardiac catheterization procedure, a small, hollow tube is inserted into a blood vessel. Once inserted, a number of procedures can be performed through the catheter, including measuring the pressure within the heart’s chambers, collecting biopsies, angiogram, and angioplasty.
Phoenixville Hospital has three interventional catheterization labs–both are brand new and feature advanced equipment. Our labs are staffed by interventional cardiologists, a vascular surgeon and an electrophysiologist. In many cases, they can offer you all the treatments you may need in one procedure, in one location in your community.
