Catheterization to try to eliminate SVT is different from catheterization to look for coronary disease and it is not typical for an electrophysiologist to also look at the coronary arteries. Having said that, it may be very reasonable to do that under certain circumstances. Usually, in young people, we will proceed noninvasively first to look for disease since it has less risk than a catheterization.
