Treatment of Coronary Artery Disease

Memorial Hermann offers a comprehensive range of treatments for coronary artery disease, including medications, interventional procedures and heart surgery.

Medication

A number of medications can be used to treat the pain of angina and help improve blood flow to the heart.

Interventional Heart Procedures

Interventional heart procedures such as angioplasty, stenting, artherectomy and ablation may also be used to open carotid arteries.

Open Heart Surgery

In more severe cases, physicians may elect to perform a coronary artery bypass graft (CABG), commonly called open heart surgery.

Each year, 700 open heart surgeries are performed at Memorial Hermann Heart and Vascular Institute to treat such disorders as unstable angina, acute coronary syndrome, non-ST segment elevation and heart attack.

Affiliated surgeons practicing at the Institute utilize the least invasive techniques possible to achieve the best results - reduced pain, less blood loss, shorter hospital stays and faster recovery times.
