    Does anyone know how long a pacemaker surgery takes? And time to perform an angiogram? I need to calculate the anesthesia time. Thanks.

    Each procedure time will vary depending on what kind of angiogram, and the patient's vascular anatomy. I tell patient's family when I do a procedure, that it will be at least one hour, and could go longer. I have done GI bleed studies in 3 hours, our therasphere cancer procedures have gone 5 hrs, TIPS can go at least 3 hrs. Cerebral aneurysm coilings can go 4 hrs, and stroke treatments can go 3 hours or more.
