FMD and SCAD

with Heather Gornik, MD

Description:

Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) is an uncommon disorder often found in women between ages 30 and 50, but may also occur in children and the elderly. It can be difficult to diagnose, but while there is no cure, it can be treated effectively. Don’t miss this opportunity to chat with Heather Gornik, MD, an expert in the diagnosis and treatment of FMD, and Pamela Mace, RN, President of the Fibromuscular Dysplasia Society of America (FMDSA). SCAD (spontaneous coronary artery dissection) is a rare condition that that occurs when a tear forms in one or more blood vessels, which can slow or block blood flow to the heart and cause a heart attack. It is mostly found in women between the ages of 30 and 50.

Advanced Coronary Artery Disease

with Mouin Abdallah, MD and Jaikirshan Khatri, MD

Description:

Coronary artery disease is the narrowing or blockage of the coronary arteries, due to atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis (sometimes called “hardening” or “clogging” of the arteries) is the buildup of cholesterol and fatty deposits (called plaques) on the inner walls of the arteries. These plaques can restrict blood flow to the heart muscle by physically clogging the artery or by causing abnormal artery tone and function. Take this opportunity to have your questions answered by cardiologists Mouin Abdallah, MD, and Jaikirshan Khatri, MD.
