When the heart muscle does not get enough blood flow, which carries oxygen to the heart muscle, it results in chest pain (angina pectoris or just angina). Chest pain can occur for several reasons, but it should always be taken seriously as it could be the first sign of a heart attack.
Cardiac tumors are primary tumors or secondary tumors that form in the heart. Most cardiac tumors are noncancerous (benign) and some cardiac tumors are cancerous (malignant).
Congenital heart disease is a heart condition where the structure of the heart and vessels do not form correctly during fetal development in the uterus. Defects can form in the walls of the heart, heart valves, and arteries and veins leading to the heart.

Duplex ultrasound combines Doppler flow information and conventional imaging information, sometimes called B-mode, to allow physicians to see the structure of your blood vessels.
An electrocardiogram, better known as an EKG, is a noninvasive diagnostic test that uses electrodes to record the electrical activity of the heart while active and at rest. It can assist in diagnosing a number of heart conditions, including problems with heart size (cardiomyopathy or hypertrophy) and abnormal heart rhythms.
Cardiac catheterization is a specialized X-ray exam used to look inside the arteries and chambers of the heart in adults, infants and children. Catheterization procedures are nonsurgical, minimally invasive procedures that provide your doctor with information about how your heart is functioning.

Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), also called biventricular pacing, is delivered by a small, battery-operated device that can be permanently placed inside you. This new therapy is typically used for ventricular dysynchrony, a type of heart failure, where the two ventricles in the heart are not beating at the same tim
Surgery for aneurysm of the descending and thoracoabdominal aorta typically involves older, higher risk patients who may have hypertension, atherosclerosis, pulmonary obstructive disease (COPD), a history of smoking and some degree of existing kidney disease.
When minimally invasive interventions such as cardiac catheterization or valvuloplasty are not an option, to treat congenital heart disease, a pediatric or adult heart care physician may recommend surgery as the best course for treatment.
