Mount Sinai Heart: Coronary Artery Disease
As the most common form of heart disease, coronary artery disease can lead to a range of serious conditions, including heart attack. That’s why choosing the right care is so important for your lifelong heart health. At the Mount Sinai Health System, our cardiac specialists draw on advanced treatments and deep experience to personalize the right care plan for you.
Coronary Artery Disease occurs when the cells lining the arteries are damaged from plaque buildup, restricting blood flow to your heart. Patients from around the globe come to Mount Sinai Heart for treatments to help restore the pathways to the heart. Each year, The Mount Sinai Hospital’s Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory performs approximately 7,500 interventions, from routine to complex cases.
