Adventures in angioplasty
The physicians at the Heart Center strive to reduce their patient’s cardiovascular risk but when invasive procedures are needed, state of the art technology and expertise is available locally. Recently the MetroWest Daily News did a spotlight on Dr. James Alderman, MD of the Heart Center, and the coronary angioplasty program in Framingham.
Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death in the United States for men and women. Nearly 2400 Americans die every day from cardiovascular disease – nearly one person every 37 seconds. Heart disease kills as many people annually as cancer, accidents, diabetes, and lung disease combined.
It is estimated that in 2008 about 800,000 Americans will suffer their first heart attack, and another 400,000 will suffer a repeat heart attack. This year at least 300,00 Americans first indication that they have heart disease will be sudden cardiac death.
Make sure you know your cardiovascular risk and are doing all you can to reduce your risk. The Framingham risk score is one way to estimate that risk.
