Coronary and Vascular Disease Care

Overview

One of the primary cardiovascular conditions is called atherosclerosis, when plaque builds up in the blood vessels and narrows the arteries. The build-up can eventually block blood flow, causing a heart attack or stroke. Other cardiovascular conditions include arrhythmia, heart valve problems and heart failure.
