Heart Disease Treatment Q & A
What is heart disease?
Any condition that affects the heart falls into the category of heart disease. This includes conditions you might have been born with (congenital heart defects) or a heart condition that developed over time due to aging or lifestyle choices (coronary artery disease).
No matter the type or cause, the board-certified cardiologists at COR Healthcare Medical Associates can provide the heart disease treatment you need to manage the underlying condition.
What are the types of heart disease?
Of the many types of heart disease, the most common include:
Heart arrhythmias refer to the irregular beating of your heart. The change in your heartbeat could be fleeting or a symptom of an underlying heart problem.
Valvular heart disease
Valvular heart disease includes conditions that affect the structure or function of the valves in your heart, which can affect blood flow. Changes in your cardiac valves can lead to leaking or regurgitation of blood through the chambers of your heart.
Coronary heart disease
Coronary heart disease occurs when the blood vessels to your heart become narrowed or blocked due to the buildup of plaque. This type of heart disease increases your risk of having a heart attack or a stroke.
Heart defects refer to structural issues in your heart that affect function. Heart defects are usually congenital, meaning you were born with them.
What is heart disease treatment?
Heart disease treatment refers to the various tools and techniques the board-certified cardiologists at COR Healthcare Medical Associates use to manage your heart condition.
The specifics of your treatment plan will depend on the type of heart disease you have. However, lifestyle changes will be recommended to improve or maintain heart health and strength, which can include:
- Eating a heart-healthy diet
- Getting regular exercise
- Better managing your stress
Treating your heart disease with medications can include medication to control an underlying condition like high blood pressure or high cholesterol that affects the health of your heart. The team also offers anticoagulation management to treat blood clots.
