What is the average cost of heart catheterization?

Heart catheterization or cardiac catheterization is a medical procedure used to diagnose and treat certain heart conditions. During the procedure, the catheter (a long, flexible, thin tube) is introduced into a blood vessel in the patient's arm, neck or upper thigh to the heart. The doctor can diagnose certain heart conditions and prescribe the needed treatment.  

The procedure takes between 30 and 60 minutes, and is performed to detect cardiac amyloidosis, congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, heart defects, high blood pressure or problems with the heart valves.

What is the cost of cardiac catheterization worldwide?

The price for heart catheterization depends on the clinic and country where it is performed, whether it is done for the entire heart or only part of it and the other procedures which are needed (X-ray, etc). To make a comparison please take into consideration that the price for cardiac catheterization for the left side of the heart starts at $7,000 in the US and from $11,300 for the right part.

In contrast, the price for this procedure for the whole heart would be around $1,500 in the Philippines, $4,500 in Mexico, $1,000 in India and $1,000 in Moldova (without additional check-ups, in most cases).

Where should I go for this procedure?

The country and clinic that you choose should depend primarily on the skill and experience of the selected clinic’s staff and their qualifications. While price does pay a significant role in a decision, it shouldn’t be the deciding factor. If you find a procedure that you like on our website, be sure to check the associated clinic’s profile and their associated staff, learn about their education, experience and qualifications. Also, check out our articles section regarding choosing a procedure, where you might find more information about deciding on a package.
