Angiography

Angiography This is a technique used to visualise the inside of vessels, in this case, those of the heart.  It is basically used to assess the extent of angina. It involves cardiac catheterisation. Once the catheter is in place, an iodine based dye is injected into the coronary vessels, and the extent of narrowing (atheroma) can be asses by –x-ray.

Cardiac Catheterization

Cardiac catheterization This is not necessarily the same as coronary angiography, although the two terms are sometimes used interchangeably. Cardiac catheterisation is the process by which you gain catheter access to the veins or arteries of the heart. Thus, in the procedures of coronary angiography, and angioplasty, you perform cardiac catheterisation as part of the procedure.

Physiological Changes of the Heart at Birth

Fetal circulation The fetus receives blood via the umbilical vein. Once this enters the body, it travels through the liver as the ductus venosus before joining the inferior vena cava. It allows 80% of fetal blood to bypass the liver on return from the placenta. It closes functionally within minutes of birth, and structurally within a couple of weeks (may take longer in pre-term babies) Becomes the ligamentus venosum
