Coronary angiography

Coronary angiography

The cardiac team might decide that more information about where the coronary artery is blocked and the size of the blockage will help them to manage your condition. If so, they should offer you a test called coronary angiography within 96 hours of hospital admission.

You should also be offered coronary angiography if you have had more symptoms since admission to hospital or other tests (called ischaemia testing) show more problems with your heart. The cardiac team will look at the results of the coronary angiography and consider whether procedures for improving the blood flow to the heart would be suitable for you.
