It is a straight forward procedure and very safe. The only pain which your father in law will experience is when the local anaesthetic is being injected, after that he should not feel anything. Depending on how they seal up the puncture wound will depend on how long he will stay in hospital - but he should be home by the following day at the latest. Most of the patients ive spoken to after the procedure have said it was over very quickly and were suprised at how comfortable it was.

Please advice which angiogram is the best to get the blocks detected (if any)

I have undergone several stress tests and echocardiograms plus a cardiolite stress test in the past couple of months with nothing to eventful showing up. During my last stress test performed by my cardiologist I mentioned that sometimes when I do the treadmill test I get a mild discomfort in my upper back. Based on this my cardiologist wants me to have CT angiogram done. I am very very nervous about this test due to the high radiation. Is this necessary and is there anything else?
