Heart disease includes many cardiac conditions. Some people are born with congenital defects that create heart disease, while others develop it from lifestyle, age, illness, trauma, chemotherapy or other factors.
Coronary artery disease is the most common form of heart disease. Other types of heart disease include faulty heart valves, irregular heartbeat and heart failure.
Cardiovascular patients at Abington Memorial Hospital benefit from advanced technology for diagnostics and treatment. Appropriate therapies are determined based upon the heart disease condition and its severity. When possible, minimally invasive procedures are used.
