Heart Disease

Heart disease includes many cardiac conditions. Coronary artery disease is the most common form of heart disease. Other types include malfunctioning heart valves, heart failure and irregular heartbeat or atrial fibrillation.

The experts at Abington Health’s Heart and Vascular Institute specialize in diagnosing and treating all types of cardiac disease with the newest advanced technology and approaches.

Causes of Heart Disease

Some people are born with congenital structural problems that create heart disease. Others develop cardiac disease from lifestyle, age, illness, trauma, chemotherapy or other factors.

Heart Disease Treatment

After an extensive evaluation with the latest diagnostics, our heart specialists discuss your treatment options fully with you. Therapies are recommended based upon your heart disease condition and its severity. Minimally invasive procedures are used as much as possible.
