Cardiac Catheterization Lab 

Whether it's a scheduled procedure or one needed in case of a cardiovascular emergency, our Cardiac Catheterization Lab (Cath Lab) is equipped with the technology and staff to provide lifesaving treatments.

The lab's two cardiovascular suites feature modern tools, such as intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP), intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), hemodynamic documentation system, rotoblator, angiojet and thrombectomy devices.

A skilled team of interventional cardiologists on the medical staff, nurses, registered cardiovascular invasive specialists, radiology technicians and cardiovascular technicians work together to perform a range of advanced procedures, including:

  • Coronary angiograms
  • Right heart catheterizations
  • Pacemakers (permanent and temporary)
  • Internal cardiac defibrillators (ICD)
  • Direct currant cardio versions (DCCV)
  • Radial artery catheterization

True to Baylor's mission of education, the Cath Lab is recognized as a clinical teaching site for El Centro College's Registered Cardiovascular Invasive Specialist Program and Radiology Program. It also is recognized as a clinical teaching site for Baylor School of Radiology and Garland ISD.
