Heart Disease Treatment
Treatment for heart disease is determined by the severity of your condition. Part of treatment lies in making healthy lifestyle changes to prevent or manage heart disease. The other part lies in treating heart disease with a range of options: from medications like ACE inhibitors, which are used to lower blood pressure—to heart transplant, treatment for the most serious cases of heart disease.
Catheter procedures give surgeons an in-depth look at the arteries leading to your heart and can correct structural problems that lead to irregular heartbeats, fatigue, and other potentially life-threatening symptoms. Valve replacement surgery is a solution for patients whose valves are too fragile, scarred, or otherwise damaged to repair.
Coronary bypass is a surgical procedure used to restore blood flow to heart muscle. People who require bypass surgery have partial or total blockages of the arteries, which is one of the primary symptoms of heart disease. Heart transplant is a treatment option for patients who are in the end stages of heart failure, for whom medication, lifestyle changes, and less invasive procedures haven’t succeeded.
