They say that home is where the heart is. But, what happens if you have health issues due to heart or vascular problem. Occasionally, a heart may need some care including strengthening or rehabilitation.
Although your heart is a powerful muscular structure in the body, there are times when you may require some medical assistance after weakening of the heart or after you’ve undergone a procedure.
The vascular system, or the blood vessel system, throughout the body is also a system that may require medical attention should there become a problem with it.
While most correlate the heart with a heart attack, there are other conditions that may occur which require treatment or rehabilitation.
- Heart Attack – When heart muscle is damaged or destroyed, typically due to a blood flow interruption
- Congestive Heart Failure – When the heart can no longer pump the amount of blood needed by the body, usually caused by weakening of the heart
- Peripheral Arterial Disease – When narrowing of the arteries prevents normal blood supply to the limbs
In addition, medical care may be needed for recovery after a heart procedure that was performed. This may consist of heart bypass surgery, angioplasty or a heart valve replacement.
