Overview *

The heart is the most essential muscle in the body. Its main function is to pump the blood to the lungs and to the rest of the body. Sometimes people have serious problems with their heart and the arteries that go into it.

A coronary angiogram test helps your health care providers look at the blood vessels of the heart. In this procedure, the health care provider injects dye into the coronary arteries so that they can be x-rayed. An angiogram is the best way to find out if arteries are blocked or restricted by plaque.

If a coronary artery is blocked, a coronary angioplasty is a procedure that allows your health care provider to open narrowed arteries of the heart. This procedure uses a balloon to open arteries so that blood flow to the heart can be increased.

Coronary angiograms and angioplasties are safe. Risks and complications are rare. But they can happen. Knowing about them will help you detect them early if they happen.
