Treatments
Heart Valve Replacement
Sometimes a natural heart valve that is not working properly needs to be replaced surgically with a prosthetic valve.
Angioplasty
Angioplasty is a procedure in which a tiny device is inserted into narrowed blood vessels that supply blood to the heart. This device widens the arteries and increases blood flow.
Cardiac Catheterization
Cardiac catheterization is a procedure in which a heart specialist inserts a small tube (catheter) through a large blood vessel in the arm or leg, then passes the tube into the heart.
Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery
Coronary artery bypass surgery is a procedure that detours (or bypasses) blood around a blocked section of one or more coronary arteries. It is also called coronary artery bypass grafting or CABG (pronounced "cabbage").
Heart-Lung Transplant
A heart-lung transplant is surgery for someone with life-threatening breathing and heart problems.
