Radial Heart Caths

When you're having heart trouble, a heart catheterization helps doctors find out why and fix it. A heart cath is done through a large artery in your groin or a small artery in your wrist. Both ways work, but most people prefer the wrist-a radial cath.

You get up and move as soon you're done. Then you go home, usually within hours. No long recovery, no lying motionless-just in, out and done. Patients and doctors have increasingly embraced the new approach in cardiac cath, the advantages of which include:

  • Easier catheter access
  • Fewer complications
  • Faster recovery and
  • Greater patient satisfaction

Only a few Iowa hospitals do radial heart caths. Allen Hospital does them every day. Want to know more? Let's talk.
