Cardiology Conditions

 Here’s a look at the cardiology conditions we treat.  


A heart disease characterized by plaque and fatty buildup on the inner walls of arteries.

Atrial Fibrillation/Flutter  

Irregular or quickened heartbeat.

Aortic Diseases/Stenosis, acquired and congenital 

Aortic-related issues (including stenosis, which is the restriction of the aortic valve opening) that are developed at birth (congenital), and later and life (acquired).

Aortic Valve Disease 

Problems with the aortic valve that affect blood flow between the aorta and left ventricle; this can be both congenital and acquired.

Arrhythmias, acquired and inherited 

Heartbeats that are too fast, too slow, or irregular; this can be both congenital and acquired.

Bradycardia, sick sinus syndrome and heart block 

Issues with the sinus node, which is your heart’s natural metronome, that cause irregular heartbeats, including a slow heart rate (sinus bradycardia), an irregular heart rate (sinus pauses), or paused heart rate (sinus arrest).

Cardiomyopathy, acquired and inherited  

A muscle disease that reduces your heart’s ability to effectively pump blood throughout your body.

Chest Pain and Angina 

The lack of blood flow to the heart; this can vary from mild to severe.

Congenital Heart Disease  

Inherited heart issues that can vary from extreme to very mild.

Coronary Heart Disease  

A disease characterized by narrow coronary arteries.

Coronary Artery Disease  

The narrowing or blockage of the coronary arteries, usually caused by the buildup of cholesterol and fatty deposits (called plaques) on the inner walls.

Dizziness, Blacking Out Spells 

Loss of consciousness caused by the lack of blood to the brain.

Heart Attacks

A blockage of major parts of the heart. Spasms or partial failure of the heart can also cause a heart attack.

Heart Failure

The failure of the heart to pump blood (systolic), or fill itself adequately (diastolic).

High Cholesterol and Triglycerides  

High levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, and triglycerides fats. These can lead to heart disease.

Ventricular Tachycardia 

Quick heartbeat.

Ventricular Fibrillation 

A fluttering of the heart muscle.

Posterior Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome 

A lack of blood returning to the heart when transitioning from lying down to standing.

Supraventricular & Ventricular Tachycardia 

Irregular heart beats in the upper and lower chambers of the heart.

Congenital/Acquired Heart Block or Sinus Node Dysfunction

Blockage or malfunction of the heart or sinus node.

Unexplained Syncope and Cardiac Arrest 

Sudden — and sometimes unexplained — heart failure.

Vascular Conditions

Here’s a look at the vascular conditions we treat.

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm 

An enlarged portion of the aorta (the lower part of the major vessel that supplies blood to the body).

Aortic Dissection 

Layers of the aortic wall being forced apart by blood flow; this normally occurs after an injury.

Aortoiliac Occlusive Disease 

Blockage of the iliac artery (the artery that brings blood to your legs) by plaque.

Arm Artery Disease 

Blockage in the arteries in your arm.


A heart disease characterized by plaque and fatty buildup on the inner walls of arteries.

Carotid Artery Disease 

Blockages to your carotid artery (the artery that supplies blood to your brain) by fatty deposits.

Chronic Venous Insufficiency 

Failure of leg vein valves, causing swelling and skin changes.

Connective Tissue Disorder (CTD) 

The failure of connective tissue that holds together cardiac structures.

Deep Vein Thrombosis 

Formation of a blood clot in a deep vein.

Endoleaks (Type I-V) 

Blood leaking back into an aneurysm sac.

Mesenteric Ischemia 

Inadequate blood flow to the small intestine.

Peripheral Aneurysm 

An enlarged or weakened area in an artery, other than your aorta.

Wound Care Conditions

Here’s a look at the wound care conditions we treat.

Arterial or Vascular Ulcers

  • A consequence of reduced blood flow
  • Treatment will look at restoring blood flow if possible
  • Wound care aims to protect skin and promote new tissue growth


  •  1st degree – redness and pain (like a sunburn)
  • 2nd degree – deeper often with blisters
  • 3rd degree – full thickness skin destruction often requires surgical care and may need referral to burn center

Radiation Skin Damage

  •  Usually a consequence of previous radiation therapy for cancer
  • Treatment may include cautious debridement, local wound care, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy to restore micro circulation previously damaged by radiation

Diabetic Foot Ulcers

  •  Leading cause of lower extremity amputation and hospitalization
  • Care involves determining blood flow and correcting if needed
  • Evaluation of neuropathy (protective sensation)
  • Prevention by offloading with appropriate footwear (diabetic shoes) and sometimes use of Total Contact Casting
  • Treatment of infection when needed

Pressure Ulcers

  •  Damage to the skin because of prolonged pressure over a bony area
  • Occur due to a lack of mobility and/or a lack of normal sensation
  • Moisture, friction, and nutrition levels and infection will affect ability to heal
  • Treatment involves debridement (removal of dead tissue) then various wound care options to include negative pressure (wound VAC) therapy, tissue substitutes, or use of other wound dressings. Treatment may also include reducing pressure, treating infection, improving nutrition, and sometimes surgical flap closure.

Surgical Wounds

Wounds that are slow to heal after surgery.


  •  Progressive swelling due to insufficiency of the lymphatic system
  • Causes include previous cancer, venous disease, obesity, congestive heart failure
  • Treatment is aimed at addressing underlying conditions and use of compression garments, pumps, and lymphedema therapy
