Common Conditions We Treat
- Congestive Heart Failure: Heart failure is a condition that occurs when the heart can no longer pump enough blood to meet the body's demands.
- Atrial Fibrillation: Atrial fibrillation or flutter is an irregular heart beat that arises from the atria or upper chambers of the heart.
- Cholesterol Management
- Coronary Artery Disease: CAD occurs when the arteries that supply blood to the heart muscle become clogged with plaque.
- Diseases of the Aorta
- Valvular Heart Disease: Aortic, mitral, tricuspid and pulmonic disorders.
- Hyperlipidemia: An increase of lipids, or fat, in the blood can cause the fat to deposit in the arteries causing a disease called atherosclerosis or plaque build up,
- Hypertension: Hypertension, or high blood pressure, causes a strain on the heart and can thicken the heart muscle over many years causing heart enlargement and heart failure.
- Pulmonary Hypertension
- Peripheral Vascular Disease
- Heart Attack Prevention
- Stroke Prevention
- Detection and Reversal of Arterial Plaque
- Genetic Heart Disease
Prevention Guidelines ASCVD Risk Estimator
The ACC and American Heart Association (AHA) have released the ASCVD Risk Estimator, a mobile app to help health care providers and patients estimate 10-year and lifetime risks for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) using the Pooled Cohort Equations and lifetime risk prediction tools. This app was designed as a companion tool to the 2013 ACC/AHA Guideline on the Assessment of Cardiovascular Risk and the 2013 ACC/AHA Guideline on the Treatment of Blood Cholesterol to Reduce Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Risk in Adults. The ASCVD Risk Estimator provides easy access to recommendations specific to calculated risk estimates. Additionally, the app includes readily accessible guideline reference information for both providers and patients related to therapy, monitoring and lifestyle.
The mobile app is available on the following platforms:
- iTunes for use with iPhone, iPad
- Google Play for use with Galaxy, Nexus, other Android devices
- Web Version for use via your Internet browser
