Cardiac Concerns

   

 

 

 

 

 

Arrhythmias can affect the pace and rhythm in which the heart beats. In some cases, arrhythmias may require medication, lifestyle changes, ablations, or cardiac surgery.

Coronary artery disease develops when the major blood vessels that supply your heart with blood, oxygen and nutrients (coronary arteries) become damaged or diseased. Cholesterol-containing deposits (plaque) in your arteries and inflammation are usually to blame for coronary artery disease. The build up of these plaques can have major consequences to your overall health and well being.

Heart valve disease occurs when there is dysfunction in one or more of the four heart valves—mitral, aortic, tricuspid, or pulmonary.

 

Vascular disease is any form of malformation of the arteries, veins, or vessels. Vessels are needed to distribute blood throughout the body.

 

Congestive heart failure is a severe medical condition that may be managed with early intervention, medication, or cardiac surgery.
