Non-coronary Vascular
Improving blood flow
outside the heart
2013-08-30T09:03:22+00:00
Similar to your coronary arteries, peripheral arteries (blood vessels outside the heart) can develop plaque build-up. Reduced blood flow creates ischemia or insufficient blood flow to the body's tissue. When ischemia affects your legs it is called peripheral artery disease.

Heart Valves

Heart Valves
Helping valves to deliver
better blood flow
2013-08-30T08:57:05+00:00
The valves in your heart ensure good blood flow in one direction with no leakage back into the heart chambers. Research has led to innovative techniques to treat heart valve disease and new technologies to repair or replace heart valves.
