At St. Joseph Medical Center doctors, in particular, Dr. Mark Midei, performed a cardiac catheterization 46% of the time and at St. Joseph Medical Center in Towson Maryland cardiac catheterizations were given to patients 44% of the time.

Coronary Angiography & Cardiac Catheterization

In most cases, before you received your stent or stents, a doctor called a cardiologist performed a coronary angiography.  A coronary angiography is a test that uses a special dye and x-ray to show the insides of your coronary arteries. The reason that doctors perform this test is a concern that too much plaque (plak) has built up on the walls of your arteries.  A build-up of plaque on the walls of your arteries can lead to heart disease or a heart attack.

To perform the coronary angiography, doctors perform a procedure called cardiac catheterization.  This is the actual procedure by which the doctors insert a long flexible tube called a catheter into your blood vessel.  Usually, the catheter is inserted into your arm, groin, or neck.  Once the catheter is inserted, the dye is injected into the bloodstream.  That dye is a special type of dye that is visible on an x-ray.  That dye makes your blood vessels appear on the x-ray for review by the cardiologists.  the procedure of cardiac catheterization is recorded by the hospital.

That recording is the evidence by which our doctors can determine if you received an unneeded stent.  Our doctors will review your cardiac catheterization records and procedure from St. Joseph Medical Center to determine if you received an unneeded stent.

A stent is a small mesh tube that is used to treat narrowed or weakened arteries in the body.  An artery is a blood vessel that carries blood away from the heart to other parts of your body.  An angioplasty is a procedure by which a cardiologist inserts a stent in an artery to allow the blood to flow more smoothly. A stent can also be placed to increase blood flow or prevent an artery from bursting.  Stents are usually made of a metal mesh but some case they can be made of a fabric that allows blood to continue to flow.

The use of Plavix or Coumadin medication is usually prescribed to a person who has received a stent. The use of Plavix and Coumadin allows the blood to flow over the stent and prevent clotting around the stent.  These medications can also have negative effects on other parts of the body such as an inability to stop bleeding from a cut.
