Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory

Preclinical Catheterization Laboratory Core

The Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory is used to perform procedures such as: • C  ardiac and peripheral interventions • Electrophysiology studies • Radiofrequency and laser ablations

• E  ndovascular interventions • Robotic catheter studies • Pacemaker implants

The laboratory is equipped with a conference room for didactic sessions and a large control room to view

Cutting-Edge Technology The Preclinical Catheterization Laboratory Core is equipped with a Seimens Axiom Artis fluoroscopic C-arm capable of producing computerized tomography-like images known as Dyna-CT®. These images can then be transferred to the Siemens Syngo® workstation to produce 3-D images. The 3-D image can be used for subtracted and unsubtracted

procedures away from the field of radiation. Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory provides training in: • H  ansen robotic catheter • C  ardiac and peripheral use intervention • Transseptal puncture • C  hronic total occlusion intervention • Epicardial puncture • C  arotid stent implant with distal filter protection

Core Support

The Preclinical Catheterization Laboratory Core

The fluoroscopic unit is equipped with a large flat panel

is supported by the Houston Methodist Research

detector which provides larger images during acquisitions that are typically used in peripheral angiography.

Experience The Preclinical Catheterization Laboratory Core is managed and operated by Daryl Schulz, a registered radiographic

Institute’s Comparative Medicine Program. The Comparative Medicine Program is approved by AALAAC and provides veterinarian support for

The core personnel perform many cardiovascular surgical procedures such as vessel access and cath lab surgical procedures, and have extensive experience operating simulators for cardiovascular surgery. The core members collaborate with the Houston Methodist DeBakey Heart & Vascular Center in conducting physician training programs and conferences.
