or invasive procedures
Aortic Stenosis – Hardened and calcified aortic valve of the heart. Treated with
open heart surgery or minimally invasive TAVR procedure.
Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) – plaque build-up within the arteries which can cause heart attacks.
Treated through minimally invasive interventions.
Heart Failure – weakened heart muscle treated with medication and lifestyle changes
Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension – fluid build-up on the right side of the heart through constricted
blood vessels treated through diagnostic procedures and medications
Valvular Disease – Hardened and calcified valves of the heart, or leakage from any
heart valve that cause inefficiencies in the heart pumping blood to organs.
