General Heart Conditions We Treat

Our cardiologists and members of the heart care team treat conditions such as:

  • Arrhythmia – Irregular heartbeat

  • Heart attack
  • Heart disease – Umbrella term that describes a range of conditions that involve damage to the heart itself of its major blood vessels
  • Heart failure – Heart’s inability to pump enough blood
  • Patent foramen ovale (PFO) – Hole in the heart, usually present at birth

Structural, Vascular & Valvular Conditions We Treat

Find expert care of structural, vascular and valvular heart conditions at UHS, including:

  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm – Weakened or bulging portion of your aortic artery in your abdomen 
  • Aortic valve stenosis – Narrowing of your aortic valve that causes your heart to work harder to pump blood throughout your body
  • Atherosclerosis – Hardened, narrowed arteries due to plaque buildup
  • Blue toe syndrome – Foot pain and bluish color to your feet caused by a blockage in the small blood vessels in your foot
  • Blood clots
  • Carotid artery stenosis – Narrowing of the arteries that supply blood and oxygen to the brain
  • Cerebrovascular disease – Reduction in blood flow to the brain, usually from hypertension or atherosclerosis
  • Clotting disorders – Inability to form blood clots and stop blood flow, such as after an injury
  • Collagen vascular disease – Inflammation of your joints and arteries caused by an autoimmune condition
  • Coronary artery disease – Narrowed pathways and decreased blood flow in your heart’s major blood vessels due to plaque deposits and inflammation

  • Mesenteric ischemia – Damage to your intestines caused by a lack of proper blood supply
  • Mitral valve regurgitation – Improper closing of the mitral valve that prevents your heart from properly pumping blood out of your heart
  • Mitral valve stenosis – Narrowing of your mitral valve that blocks blood flow to the main chamber of your heart
  • Peripheral vascular disease – Narrowing of the blood vessels below your stomach that causes poor circulation to your lower organs and extremities
  • Portal hypertension – Increased pressure in the veins that carry blood from the stomach, intestine, spleen and pancreas to the liver
  • Pulmonary valve stenosis – A deformity on or near your pulmonary heart valve that slows blood flow from the heart to the lungs; usually present at birth
  • Renal artery stenosis – Narrowing of the arteries that carry blood to the kidneys
  • Spider veins – Mild form of varicose veins
