Hi,thanks for query.Sorry to hear about your mother.Please understand that any intervention carries some risk and with the best of precautions taken accidents do happen.It is not necessary that what has happened is due to dye.Normally angiography is such a procedure which is done on high risk patients who are suspected to have some blocks in vessels of heart.Underlying disease it self can lead to mishaps at times.Please relax and try to remove bias from your mind.You can for your comfort still discuss things with the treating doctor ,who will surely explain this in better way.
