Comprehensive care for ischemic heart disease
Ischemic heart disease is caused by a lack of blood flow, oxygen and nutrients to the heart muscle. It can present with multiple symptoms and be caused by many different factors.
At Baylor Scott & White Health, we have a multifaceted team of cardiologists, nurses and other heart care experts dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of ischemic heart disease. Heart disease treatment can range from non-invasive ultrasounds and laboratory tests to cardiac catheterization that can directly evaluate the blood vessels and pressures of the heart.
