Healthy Heart


Angioplasty and Stents
Angioplasty is a nonsurgical technique for opening a blocked artery. A stent is a tube used to keep the artery open.

Bypass Surgery
Heart bypass surgery is just what it sounds like. It’s also called "cabbage" -- CABG or coronary artery bypass graft. A surgeon builds a bypass around a blocked artery. It's a very serious but very common operation.

Heart Valve Surgery and Valvuloplasty
Heart valve disease can be treated with surgery. It can also be treated with balloon valvuloplasty, a nonsurgical technique. This article compares and contrasts the two approaches.

Like defibrillation, cardioversion uses an electric shock to restore proper heart rhythm. But cardioversion uses a milder shock in nonemergency situations.

For people with persistent angina, EECP -- enhanced external counterpulsation -- can sometimes help when other treatments fail. It's a high-tech, nonsurgical procedure that can create a kind of natural bypass for blocked arteries

Aortic Aneurysm Repair
Aortic aneurysm repair is a tricky surgery.

Heart Ablation Therapy
For heart-rhythm problems, ablation therapy seeks to stop abnormal electrical signals. There are both nonsurgical and surgical forms of heart ablation therapy.

Heart Transplant
Yes, it's drastic. But 40 years after the first heart transplant, it's now an established procedure.

Pacemakers are often implanted to keep your heart on track.

Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator
An implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is an amazingly sophisticated device. It automatically senses when your heart starts to flutter helplessly, then shocks it back into its rhythmic groove.

ICD Lead Extraction
You may need ICD lead extraction when one of the wires going from your device to your heart -- a lead -- isn't working right.

Left Ventricular Assist Device
It's not an artificial heart -- but it's close. An implanted LVAD -- left-ventricular-assist device that's sometimes called a "bridge to transplant" -- helps the heart's main chamber do its pumping job.
