Common Heart Attack Procedures

Last updated 3 years ago

During a heart attack, a clot or fatty plaque obstructs blood flow to the heart muscle.  Without the normal flow of blood, oxygen, and nutrients, the heart muscle is unable to function properly and its cells begin to die. To restore healthy blood flow, a physician can utilize a variety of treatment modalities. By watching this video, you can learn more about some of the most common procedures used to alleviate the symptoms and causes of heart attack.
