Cardiology Questions Answered by Verified Cardiologists.
Hi and thanks for the query.
The procedure the cardiologist wants to do is called an angiography in which they introduce a catheter through the femoral artery and go in to the coronary arteries, inject a dye and visualize for any narrowing and blockage. If any is found an angioplasty is done in the same setting and at the same time, angioplasty is when stents are introduced in the narrowed lumen to open them up.
The other set of blood work is general blood work like liver function tests, renal function tests, lipid profile etc. which is routine before this procedure.
