Medication Management

Along with very important lifestyle changes, there are a variety of medicines used to help treat heart conditions. Medicines for heart disease are used to ease discomfort or lessen symptoms, but some can also be essential in preventing life-threatening episodes. It is important to take your medicines exactly as prescribed, and work with your doctor on both lifestyle and medicine changes.

Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (Angioplasty/Stent Placement)

An angioplasty is a less invasive procedure that opens a clogged artery with a small balloon. This can be done through the wrist (radial) or the groin (femoral) artery. Typically this procedure includes the placement of stents.

Enhanced External Counterpulsation Therapy (EECP)

This non-invasive procedure is meant to decrease the severity and occurrences of angina episodes. Three pairs of inflatable cuffs are placed around the legs. These cuffs expand and retract in an effort to improve blood flow and return more blood to the heart.
