Fast Action Limits Heart Damage
Heart disease, also called cardiovascular disease, is caused by plaque buildup in artery walls — the blood vessels that carry blood from the heart to the brain, arms, legs and other organs. As arteries narrow, blood no longer flows easily. The buildup increases the likelihood of a heart attack of stroke.
There are many different types of heart disease. Cardiac events such as a heart attack or aneurysm often happen quickly and with little warning. Abnormal heart rhythms or peripheral artery disease can lie undetected for years. Our sophisticated, state-of-the-art diagnostics support the treatment it takes to save lives.
