Welcome to the Cardiac Catheterization Lab
Cardiac Catheterization (CCL) Lab is an invasive, diagnostic specialty procedure department which performs high quality diagnostic cineangiography and hemodynamic physiologic studies on the adult and geriatric patients. Cardiac Catheterization is used to view and treat potential artery blockages that could cause heart attacks or other serious cardiovascular damage. The Cath Lab also offers Percutaneous Coronary Interventions (PCIs) e.g. Angioplasty – a non-surgical procedure to open blocked heart arteries.
Kaiser Permanente Santa Clara has three Cardiac Catheterization labs serving members in the South Bay and Greater Southern Alameda Area. The lab features an all-digital cardiovascular imaging system. The system enables cardiologists to view hard-to-see blood vessels as well as the devices used during procedures, such as stents, guide wires and catheters.
