Heart and Vascular Conditions


Angina is the pain resulting specifically from a heart condition (usually heart disease) and is from coronary arteries being narrowed or blocked.  

Aortic Aneurysm

An aortic aneurysm occurs when the large blood vessel (aorta), which supplies blood to the abdomen, pelvis and legs, becomes too large or balloons outward.

Aortic Dissection

An aortic dissection is a tear in the wall of the aorta that causes blood to leak in between the layers of the wall of the aorta, splitting the wall apart.  


An arrhythmia is a heart rate that is faster or slower than the average heart rate. It is a disturbance in the normal beating pattern of the heart.


Atherosclerosis is a form of arteriosclerosis—a condition where fatty materials collect and calcify on the inside of arteries.  

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation, or a-fib, is the most common heart rhythm disorder, occurring when the upper chamber of the heart beats faster than the bottom chamber.

Atrial Septal Defect

An atrial septal defect (ASD) is a congenital heart defect that allows blood to pass between the left and right atria via the interatrial septum.  

Carotid Artery Disease

Carotid artery disease is a condition in which the major arteries of the neck (carotid arteries), which provide the pain blood supply to the brain, become narrowed or blocked.

Chronic Venous Insufficiency

Chronic venous insufficiency is a medical condition in which veins have problems sending blood from the legs back to the heart.  

Congenital Heart Defect

A congenital heart defect is an irregularity in the heart or vessel structure existing at birth that may cause congestive heart failure or heart disease.

Congestive Heart Failure

Congestive heart failure is a condition where the heart is no longer able to pump enough blood to the body’s organs. The heart continues to work, but not efficiently.  

Coronary Artery Chronic Total Occlusion

A coronary artery chronic total occlusion is a complete blockage of a coronary artery that has been in place for 30 or more days.

Deep Vein Thrombosis

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot that forms in a vein deep inside part of the body that does not travel to other parts of the body.  

Heart Attack

A heart attack, is a condition where part of the heart is denied blood and oxygen for a period of time, causing permanent damage to the heart muscle.

Heart Disease

Learn more about the symptoms, risk factors, diagnoses, and treatment options for a variety of heart conditions.  


A myxoma is a benign primary cardiac tumor that grows on the wall that separates the two sides of the heart.

Patent Foramen Ovale

A patent foramen ovale (PFO) is a congenital heart defect that allows blood to pass between the left and right atria through the atrial septum.  

Peripheral Vascular Disease

Peripheral vascular disease, is a condition of the blood vessels that leads to narrowing and hardening of the arteries that supply the legs and feet.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest

Sudden cardiac arrest is when the electrical system in the heart misfires, malfunctions and/or becomes irregular, causing symptoms of dizziness or a racing heartbeat.  

Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm

A thoracic aortic aneurysm is an expansion or bulge in the artery wall resulting from a weakening of the artery wall.

Valve Disease

Valve disease is a disturbance of the blood flow in the heart that can happen because of a narrowing of the valve opening or a valve that does not close correctly.  

Varicose Veins

Varicose veins, which primarily form in the veins of the legs, are dilated, swollen, elongated and twisted blood vessels that have filled with an abnormal collection of blood.
