Discomfort & Complications

There is very little discomfort.

The local anesthetic injection causes a burning sensation for a few moments; the dye injection may cause a brief warming sensation or "flushed" feeling in your body.

Remember, the actual procedure often lasts less than 30 minutes. Caomplications are rare (about 1 in 500), and we are equipped to handle most complications right here.
