Atrial Fibrillation Treatment
Treatment options include medications and procedures to help restore normal heart rhythm.
Cardiac surgeons at the Valley Hospital perform a wide range of cardiovascular procedures. These include coronary artery bypass surgery, other revascularization procedures and valve repairs and replacements, to help patients with advanced heart disease.
Cardiac catheterization involves the use of radiological equipment to diagnose and treat some forms of heart disease.
Imaging equipment and dyes may be injected into the arteries. Tools, such as balloons and stents, are fed through a catheter into the arteries to reduce stenosis and increase blood flow. Stenosis happens when the blood vessels narrow.

Chest pain is just one sign of possible heart attack. Men and women may have different symptoms. Men often have “classic” signs of a heart attack:
- Discomfort in the center of the chest that goes away and returns
- Fainting, lightheadedness, shortness of breath or nausea
- Pain that spreads to the neck, shoulders or arms
In addition to a milder form of the "classic" symptoms, women may also experience:
- Shortness of breath/Difficult breathing
- Back or jaw pain
- Nausea, vomiting or dizziness
- Palpitations, paleness or cold sweats
- Mild, flu-like symptoms
To help prevent heart attack, it is important to avoid high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Cardiologists at Valley Hospital can work with you and your primary care physician to lower your risk. This may include a heart-healthy diet as well as regular exercise.

If you have signs of a possible heart attack, call 911 or get to the nearest emergency room.
