Forrest General's Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory performs both diagnostic catheterization procedures to assess coronary artery blockages and interventional catheterization to treat heart disease. Interventional treatments for blockages in the coronary arteries include balloon angioplasty, coronary stents and removal of blood clots causing a heart attack. Some congenital problems can be corrected with catheter devices.
