DID YOU KNOW THAT HEART DISEASE IS THE LEADING KILLER OF AMERICANS? WELL, A NEW SURVEY FOUND THAT ONLY SLIGHTLY MORE THAN HALF OF ADULTS KNOW THIS FACT.

 

AN EVEN LARGER NUMBER DO NOT FULLY UNDERSTAND ONE OF THE MOST COMMON METHODS FOR TREATING THE MOST PREVALENT FORM OF HEART DISEASE, CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE, OR C-A-D, WHICH CAN LEAD TO HEART ATTACKS.

 

HERE NOW WITH MORE ON THIS SURVEY, AND TO SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT ABOUT HEART DISEASE AND TREATMENT OPTIONS FOR C-A-D, IS DR. ALPESH SHAH, AN INTERVENTIONAL CARDIOLOGIST WITH HOUSTON METHODIST HOSPITAL.

 

SUGGESTED QUESTIONS:

  1. WHAT ARE SOME OF THE KEY FINDINGS OF THIS SURVEY OF ADULTS’ BASIC KNOWLEDGE ABOUT HEART DISEASE?
  2. WHAT DO WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT KEEPING OUR HEART HEALTHY? WHAT IS CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE (CAD) AND WHY DOES IT NEED TO BE TREATED?
  3. WHAT TREATMENT OPTIONS ARE COMMONLY USED FOR C-A-D?
  4. THE SURVEY FOUND AMERICANS KNOW LITTLE ABOUT STENTS, CAN YOU ELABORATE ON HOW THEY WORK AND IF THERE ARE DIFFERENT KINDS OF STENTS TO BE AWARE OF?
  5. HOW DO YOU SUGGEST WE FIND OUT WHAT WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT C-A-D TREATMENTS?

Alpesh R. Shah, MD is a practicing Interventional Cardiologist and Associate Professor at Houston Methodist Hospital in Pearland, Texas, where he performs a wide array of interventional cardiology procedures, with expertise in novel stent implants.
