Depending on which specific condition you have, the symptoms and causes will vary, as well as the outlook, necessary diagnostic tests and preventive measures. There may also be different treatment options: Medication is an option for some kinds of cardiovascular diseases, while heart surgery may be needed for others. Multiple treatments are often needed for cardiovascular diseases, sometimes as alternatives, and sometimes in combination.
This decision aid is intended to help give you, together with your doctor or other specialist, an idea of your possible treatment options. Then you can then choose one or more suitable treatments.
