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.
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 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 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.
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:
