Cardiovascular disease, also known as heart and blood vessel disease, encompasses a number of issues that patients may be experiencing including:
Atherosclerosis – a condition developed when plaque builds up in the arteries limiting blood supply to the heart.
Heart Failure – a condition that occurs when the heart isn’t pumping enough blood to meet the body’s demand for oxygen and blood.
Arrhythmia – a condition that occurs when the heart rhythm is abnormal. The heart can beat too fast, too slow or just irregularly.
Heart Valve Problems – This includes a number of issues where the values are not functioning properly including stenosis, regurgitation and prolapse.
There are a number of treatment options for cardiovascular disease including medications, heart valve surgery, pacemakers, coronary angioplasty, coronary artery bypass graft surgery, and carotid endarterectomy. The physicians at Central Arkansas Cardiology Associates have the experience and knowledge to create a customize treatment plan for your specific needs.
