Coronary Artery Disease, a condition in which the blood vessels
that feed the heart are blocked, is the most common form of heart
disease and the number one cause of death in the United States. If
undetected and untreated, the blockages in the heart may lead to
myocardial infarction, commonly known as a heart attack.
To detect and treat this condition, Baptist Cardiovascular
Services provides a number of diagnostic tests, ranging from
noninvasive procedures such as cardiac stress testing, nuclear
cardiology, echocardiology, vascular ultrasound, Holter monitors,
EKG, cardiac CT scans and others. Invasive diagnostic procedures
include cardiac catheterization.
For patients diagnosed with coronary artery disease, Baptist
offers treatment options ranging from catheterization with balloon
angioplasty and stenting-including drug-eluting stents-vascular
brachytherapy, to open heart surgery, including coronary artery
bypass with grafting (CABG).
