blood flow problem in the heart

can a angiogram cause a blood flow problem in the heart

An angiogram itself doesn't fix anything.  It is part of a catherization of the heart...to enter coronary vessels and look at the blood flow in them.  The procedure has risks.. one is injury to a blood vessel wall and a blood clot may result.  If the procedure involved placing a stent in the vessels then there are  additional risks of blood clots with that as well.  You should be discussing this with your cardiologists since no one else knows your exact medical condition.

An Angiogram usually results in a fix, but occasionally it can result in a problem.  You need to be more specific.
