Cardiomyopathy is the disease of the heart muscle. There are many reasons why this can occur including coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, certain viruses and genetics. Cardiomyopathy usually results in an enlarged heart and ultimately heart failure.
Sudden cardiac death (also known as sudden cardiac arrest) occurs from a sudden loss of heart function where the heart stops (cardiac arrest) and blood stops circulating in the body.
Heart failure, sometimes known as Congestive Heart Failure (CHF), occurs when the heart can't pump enough to the rest of the body. If the heart muscle cannot pump enough blood, it cannot meet the body's needs for blood and oxygen. The heart is a pump that circulates the blood throughout the body.

Coronary angiography or coronary arteriography uses X-ray and contrast (dye) to capture images of the coronary arteries, the arteries that bring blood to the heart.
An electrophysiology (EP) study is a test that records the electrical activity and the electrical pathways of your heart. This test is done to help determine the cause of a heart rhythm disturbance and used to provide possible treatment options. This procedure is done in a cardiac catheterization lab.
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an imaging technology platform that aids cardiologists in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease. The C7-XR™ OCT intravascular imaging technology utilizes near-infrared light to create images that go beyond previous coronary imaging technologies.

Surgical repair of thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysms (TAAAs) enables the replacement of the diseased aortic segment and helps prevent aneurysm rupture.
Acute aortic dissection can be treated surgically. In surgical treatment, the area of the aorta with the intimal tear is resected and replaced with a graft.
Many surgeons have been using less invasive endovascular surgery on abdominal aortic aneurysms.
