TEE Cardioversion Milestone

The TEE Cardioversion Suite at Capital Cardiology Associates celebrated its 1000th procedure, 20 months after seeing their first patient Dr. Jeffrey Uzzilia said, “It is the best feeling to come to work every day knowing that everyone wants to do the same thing: do what’s best for our patients.”

Study Links Weight History With Congestive Heart Failure

On top of their being no cure for congestive heart failure, the condition is one of the most common infirmities affecting adults over 40 years old with more than 200,000 cases being diagnosed in the US every year. “Unfortunately what we are seeing more common these days are patients in their 50’s and 60’s with congestive heart failure,” states Dr. Connor Healey, a board-certified cardiologist with Capital Cardiology Associates. And for younger patients who receive the diagnosis, “The real scary thing is the overall expected lifespan is five years.”

Inside Open Heart Surgery

Thousands of open heart surgeries are performed every day in the United States. “I would say there are two major ways a patient would present the need for an open heart surgery procedure or CABG,” says Dr. Lance Sullenberger. “The first would begin with a visit to your cardiologist.”
