ABSTRACT
Abstract--Since the introduction of cardiac catheterization by Andre Cournand and Dickinson Richards, the valuable diagnostic and therapeutic device has encouraged many action-minded physicians to use cardiac catheterization to develop a new specialty, invasive cardiology. The data to be presented here derive from a catastrophe that occurred during an invasive treatment of a 54-year-old man who had experienced an ordinary myocardial infarction.
