Cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death in the US, is not something that should be taken lightly. Cleveland Clinic’s Richard Krasuski, MD, highlights five symptoms you shouldn’t ignore.
A recent study found lower overall composite risk for heart attack, stroke and death for patients with coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery as compared to balloon angioplasty and/or stenting.
The heart muscle weakens with heart disease. For those with unrelieved chest pain from angina and heart failure, Enhanced External Counterpulsation therapy could help.
Most patients with retrievable IVC filters never get the device removed. In most cases, this is not a problem—but there is some risk associated with leaving a retrievable filter in.
IVC filters are an option for patients who don’t respond to blood thinners and others who need serious prevention against blood clots. Cleveland Clinic’s Daniel Clair, MD, explains more.
Aortic aneurysm can be safely and effectively treated using either open surgery or minimally invasive techniques. The approach depends on where the disease is located in the blood vessel.
A tear in the aorta can be life threatening depending on its location. Eric Roselli, MD, tells us about type A and B dissection and how they are treated.
When is it time to operate on an aortic aneurysm? That depends on its location and type. Eric Roselli, MD, discusses types of aortic aneurysm.
For the body’s largest blood vessel, the aorta, understanding its various sections is important because treatment methods depend on the location of an aortic aneurysm.
What happens when arteries are blocked? Cleveland Clinic heart doctor Umesh N. Khot, MD, explains how the body responds when not enough blood reaches the heart—and when to call for help.
