commonly treated and preventable conditions

  1. Hypertension (High Blood Pressure):
    • Treatment: Medications, lifestyle modifications (diet, exercise, stress management).
    • Prevention: Healthy lifestyle choices, regular blood pressure monitoring.
  2. Coronary Artery Disease (CAD):
    • Treatment: Medications (beta-blockers, statins), lifestyle changes, cardiac rehabilitation.
    • Prevention: Healthy diet, regular exercise, managing cholesterol levels, smoking cessation.
  3. Heart Failure:
    • Treatment: Medications (diuretics, ACE inhibitors), lifestyle changes, device therapy (pacemakers, defibrillators).
    • Prevention: Treating underlying heart conditions, managing risk factors.
  4. Arrhythmias:
    • Treatment: Medications, catheter ablation, pacemakers, implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs).
    • Prevention: Managing risk factors, lifestyle changes, medication adherence.
  5. Valvular Heart Disease:
    • Treatment: Medications, valve repair or replacement (surgical or transcatheter), monitoring.
    • Prevention: Managing underlying conditions, regular cardiovascular check-ups.
  6. Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD):
    • Treatment: Medications, lifestyle modifications, endovascular interventions, supervised exercise programs.
    • Prevention: Healthy lifestyle, managing risk factors (smoking, diabetes), regular exercise.
  7. Atherosclerosis:
    • Treatment: Medications (statins, antiplatelet agents), lifestyle changes, angioplasty, stenting.
    • Prevention: Healthy diet, regular exercise, smoking cessation, managing cholesterol levels.
  8. Cardiomyopathy:
    • Treatment: Medications, lifestyle changes, device therapy (pacemakers, defibrillators), heart transplantation in severe cases.
    • Prevention: Managing risk factors, regular follow-ups for those at risk.
  9. Cardiac Imaging Abnormalities:
    • Treatment: Medications, lifestyle changes, monitoring, further diagnostic tests.
    • Prevention: Regular check-ups, early detection and intervention.
  10. Preventive Cardiology:
    • Treatment: Focus on lifestyle modifications, medications for risk factor control (cholesterol, blood pressure), counseling.
    • Prevention: Promoting heart-healthy habits, screening for risk factors, education on cardiovascular health.
