Cardiovascular disorders affect the heart and circulatory system. Cardiologists specialize in the evaluation and treatment of a broad variety of disorders including but not limited to: hypertension, coronary artery disease, myocardial infarction (heart attack), hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol), cardiac rhythm disorders (supraventricular tachycardia (SVT), atrial fibrillation, sick sinus syndrome, ventricular tachycardia, bradycardia heart block, sick sinus syndrome), cardiac valve disorders (aortic regurgitation), aortic stenosis, mitral regurgitation, mitral stenosis, tricuspid regurgitation, tricuspid stenosis), congestive heart failure, and diseases of the aorta (aortic aneurysm, aortic dilatation). Diagnostic testing for cardiovascular disease includes but is not limited to electrocardiogram (EKG), echocardiogram, stress testing, and cardiac catheterization. Evaluation by a cardiologist is indicated at the suggestion of a primary care physician or if a person experiences persistent symptoms suggesting cardiovascular disease without any clear underlying cause.
