The Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory (also known as CATHLAB) is a specialized service providing Diagnostic and Interventional Cardiology procedures used in the treatment of coronary artery disease, congenital heart disease and other cardiac conditions. Procedures are performed in the Cardiac Cath. Lab. including Diagnostic and Interventional Heart Catheterization procedures, Device Implantation, Electrophysiology Study with Radiofrequency / Cryo Ablation and 3D mapping. Both Adult and Pediatric patients are accommodated in the specialized services.
The KFSH&RC Jeddah Cath. Lab. consists of procedure rooms that house the most advanced technology including Bi- Plane flat panel angiographic machine that allows better quality images.
Our Catheterization Labs are equipped with some of the latest digital imaging technology with the goal to assist our Interventionists with diagnosing, evaluating and monitoring cardiac problems.
Cath. Lab. objective is to obtain accuracy of Hemodynamic and Radiologic data to have better diagnosis to treat cardiac disease. This technology is also designed to improve patient safety and comfort and reduce radiation exposure.
