Ischemic Heart Disease

Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Temple

Comprehensive care for 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 dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of ischemic heart disease, which can range from non-invasive ultrasounds and laboratory tests to cardiac catheterization that can directly evaluate the blood vessels and pressures of the heart.


Symptoms of ischemic heart disease

Once laborious and time-intensive procedures, our team can now coordinate an evaluation as an outpatient in only a few visits to understand the cause of symptoms.

Symptoms include:

  • Chest pain/pressure
  • Shortness of breath
  • Leg discomfort when walking
  • Pain in the neck, jaw, throat, abdomen or upper back
  • Blocked heart arteries
  • Abnormal heart beats (arrhythmias)
  • Weakened heart muscle
  • Improperly functioning heart valves
