Cardiac catheterization is a test used to explore the coronary arteries, using a fine tube (catheter) that's inserted into an artery or vein of an arm or leg and maneuvered into the arteries of the heart. It can be used in the diagnosis of heart disease.

I was a patient in the catheterization ward at Mercy Hospital and went through the procedure and rested afterwards.

The staff was outstanding and made my stay as good as it could be. I'll be undergoing open heart surgery, and I hope they can help me again.
