Heart & Vascular Care Conditions


Abnormal Heart Rhythms (Arrhythmias)

Abnormal heart rhythms can be described as a heart beating too fast (above 100 bpm) or slow (below 60 bpm), a fluttering sensation in the chest area or the skipping of a heart beat.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation (AF) results from multiple electrical impulses firing from both upper chambers of the heart (right and left atrium). It causes the heart to beat fast, very irregularly, and with less efficiency than with normal rhythm.

Cardiac Tumors

Cardiac tumors are primary tumors or secondary tumors that form in the heart. Most cardiac tumors are noncancerous (benign) and some cardiac tumors are cancerous (malignant).


Cardiomyopathy is the disease of the heart muscle. There are many reasons why this can occur including coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, certain viruses and genetics.

Chest Pain

When the heart muscle does not get enough blood flow, which carries oxygen to the heart muscle, it results in chest pain (angina pectoris or just angina).

Congenital Heart Disease

Congenital heart disease is a heart condition where the structure of the heart and vessels do not form correctly during fetal development in the uterus.

Heart Attack (Myocardial Infarction)

High blood pressure, elevated cholesterol or smoking can damage the inner lining of arteries in the body. This leads to a build up of fatty substances and calcium called plaque.

Heart Disease

Heart Disease, also known as Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) or Cardiovascular Disease, is a condition that involves the narrowing or blocking of the coronary arteries.

Heart Disease in Women

Heart disease is the number one killer of women over the age of 25, in the United States, regardless of race or ethnicity. Each year, six times as many women die of cardiovascular disease than breast cancer.

Heart Failure

Heart failure, sometimes known as Congestive Heart Failure (CHF), occurs when the heart can't pump enough to the rest of the body.
