    Possible ? Yes. Practical, no.

    Honestly, most cardiologists will refuse to do it without at least some anesthesia.

    Edit : Likely because it's an incredibly painful procedure. The stress & pain of it could well cause a heart attack in someone with a bad heart.

    Agree with ckm1956.

    It is highly unlikely it would be done without anaesthesia.
