    What is a cardiac catheterization, or angiogram?

    This test is usually performed in patients with chest pain, shortness of breath, positive stress test, or people with suspected heart valve abnormalities. The procedure involves placement of a catheter in the groin and injection of contrast dye into the coronary arteries and heart itself. The physician can visualize blockages in the arteries or abnormalities of the heart muscle or valves on specialized X-ray equipment. The procedure usually takes around 15-30 minutes.

    What is a Breast Self Exam (BSE)?

    A breast self-exam (BSE) is a technique used by women to become familiar with the normal look and feel of their breast. BSEs are important in keeping you aware of changes in your breasts. Knowing how your breasts normally look and feel is crucial in detecting abnormalities.

    How long will my stent last?

    Forever, but there is still a small chance of restenosis (a new blockage forming). It is very important for you to take an active role in living a heart healthy lifestyle, as doing so will lessen your chance of restenosis. The stent (coronary) will never be removed.

    What is a cataract?

    A cataract is a clouding or opaque area of the lens of the eye - an area that is normally transparent. As this thickening occurs, it prevents light rays from passing through the lens and focusing on the retina - the light sensitive tissue lining located in the back of the eye. This clouding is caused when some of the protein which makes up the lens begins to clump together and interferes with vision.
