Welcome to VGH Cardiac Catheter Laboratory

This website is designed for patients looking for information on the most common procedures performed at the Vancouver General Hospital “Cathlab”. The information presented is meant to assist you to better understand cardiac conditions and their treatments.


The Cardiac Investigation Unit (CIU) 2015 renovation and re-design to improve the patient experience finished in September 2015 with thanks to the generosity of our donors and the support of the VGH and UBC Hospital Foundation.
