Heart & Lung Surgery Treatment & Services

Coronary Heart Disease — Coronary heart disease occurs when a waxy substance called plaque builds up inside your coronary arteries. This plaque build-up is called atherosclerosis. Over time, the plaque can harden, causing restricted blood flow, or rupture, causing a blood clot that could completely block blood flow.

Aortic Aneurysm — An aortic aneurysm is a bulge in a section of the aorta, the body’s main artery. Because the section with the aneurysm is weak, it can burst. Treatment depends on the location of the aneurysm and your overall health.
