Angiography is derived from the Greek term angeion meaning vessel and graphien which means to write of record. Angiography or arteriography is a technique of medical imaging where an X-Ray is taken of the heart to visualize the inner opening of the arteries, veins and the four heart chambers, right atrium, right ventricle, left atrium and left ventricle. Angiography or angiogram requires the insertion of a catheter, a thin tube into a peripheral artery. Coronary Angiography or Coronary Catheterization is a minimally invasive procedure to access the coronary flow and blood chambers of the heart using a catheter. Coronary Catheterization was first introduced in 1950s. The general risks of Coronary Angiography are # Bleeding # Infection # Pain at the IV site # Damage of the blood vessels by the soft plastic catheters # Blood clots. In cases of serious complications, the risks include # Low blood pressure # Stroke # Heart attack # Cardiac arrhythmias # Cardiac tamponade # Hemorrhage

Siddharth, do not worry, I hope ur relative gets well soon. Make sure he takes the proper precautions. Whatever I know about this surgery, Im listing it down...The procedure carries a slightly increased risk when compared with other heart tests. However, the test is very safe when performed by an experienced team. Generally the risk of serious complications ranges from 1 in 1,000 to 1 in 500. Risks of the procedure include the following: Cardiac arrhythmias irregular heart beats Cardiac tamponade Trauma to the artery causing haematoma Low blood pressure Reaction to contrast medium Haemorrhage Stroke Heart attack Considerations associated with any type of catheterisation include the following: In general, there is a risk of bleeding, infection, and pain at the catheter site. There is always a very small risk that the soft plastic catheters could actually damage the blood vessels. Blood clots could form on the catheters and later block blood vessels elsewhere in the body. The contrast material could damage the kidneys particularly in patients with diabetes .
