- Cardiac Arrhythmia
Arrhythmia is an abnormal rhythm of the heart. It may feel like a temporary pause so brief that it doesn’t change the overall heart rate. It may also cause slow or fast heart rate.
- Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the most common type of heart disease. It is the leading cause of death in the United States in both men and women.
- High Blood Pressure (Hypertension)
Blood pressure is the force of your blood pushing against the walls of your arteries. Each time your heart beats, it pumps blood into the arteries. Your blood pressure is highest when your heart beats, pumping the blood.
The lipid profile is used to help determine an individual’s risk of heart disease and to help make decisions about what treatment may be best if there is borderline or high risk. The results of the lipid profile are considered along with other known risk factors for heart disease to develop a plan for treatment and follow-up.
- Peripheral Vascular Disease
Peripheral vascular disease very commonly accompanies coronary artery disease. Patients will often report pains in the lower extremities especially with walking. It may progress to an extent where some patients may even have pain at rest or poorly healing wounds or ulcers of their feet.
- Vascular Medicine Consultation
Vascular Disease refers to problems that affect arterial circulation (Peripheral Arterial Disease or PAD), venous circulation, and improper wound healing from lack of blood flow.
- Valvular Heart Disease
Your heart has four valves. Normally, these valves open to let blood flow through or out of your heart, and then shut to keep it from flowing backward. But sometimes they don’t work properly.
- Varicose Veins / Venous Ablations
Varicose veins occur when weak veins near the surface of the leg stretch, bulge, & twist. Varicose veins can be visible through the skin or bulging from deep under your skin.
- Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS)
- Angina: Chest Pain
Chest pain can occur as a result of many problems, but those associated with the heart and lungs are the most severe and can be life threatening. New or unexplained chest pain lasting for more than a few minutes demands immediate medical help, as it could be the sign of something serious.
- Aortic Aneurysm
Aortic aneurysm is a condition characterized by an abnormal ballooning or bulging of a section of the aorta due to weakness in the wall of the blood vessel. The aorta is the main blood vessel that carries oxygenated blood from the heart to the different parts of the body.
- Aortic Valve Disease
For efficient heart function, the valves must be able to open fully while the blood is passing through, then close tightly afterwards. Simply put, blood should flow only in one direction. Abnormal or sick valves allow less blood to pass through and/or make it leak backwards.
- Atrial Fibrillation
Atrial fibrillation is the most common type of disorder of your heart rate or rhythm. It occurs when disorganized electrical signals cause the atria (heart's two upper chambers) to contract very rapidly and irregularly.
Cardiomyopathy is a heart disorder that weakens your heart muscle leading to inefficient pumping of the blood to the rest of your body.
- Carotid Artery Disease
Carotid arteries are a pair of large blood vessels present on either side of the neck that supply blood to the brain. When these arteries get blocked, it leads to a condition known as carotid artery disease.
- Chronic Kidney Disease
- Chronic Pulmonary Heart Diseases
- Congenital Heart Disease
Congenital heart diseases (CHD) are the cardiac conditions present at birth, caused because of abnormal structures of the heart or the cardiovascular system. These diseases develop during the growth of the fetus in the womb.
- Congestive Heart Failure
- Heart Attack (Acute Myocardial Infarction)
Heart attack is one of the leading causes of death for men and women. Fortunately, various treatments are available to treat a heart attack that can save life and prevent disability.
- Heart Block
- Hypertensive Heart Disease
Hypertension is one of the most prevalent diseases throughout the world. It is considered as one of the major causes for development of cardiovascular diseases.
- Mitral Valve Disease
Mitral valve is located between the upper left chamber or left auricle and the lower left chamber or left ventricle. It has two flaps or leaflets.
- Pericardial Disease
The pericardium is a thin membrane that envelopes and protects the heart. Pericardial disease or pericarditis is an inflammation of the pericardium.
- Pulmonary Edema
- Pulmonary Hypertension
Pulmonary hypertension is a rare disorder characterized by abnormally high blood pressure in the arteries that supply blood to the lungs (pulmonary arteries). Pulmonary hypertension is not the same as general hypertension.
- Rheumatic Aortic Valve Disorders
- Septal Defect
An atrial septal defect is a hole in between the left and right upper chambers of the heart. It is a congenital defect, which means it is present at birth. The exact cause of ASD is unknown.
