Heart surgery glossary
> News

Heart disease is a rather broad description of a number of medical conditions which can impact on the health of your heart.

These conditions can be structural or functional, indeed, anything that damages the heart can make it less efficient, diminish its ability to fill or pump and potentially cause disruption of the oxygen supply to the rest of the body.

Over these pages, Chris explains some of the more common terms associated with heart conditions in plain English to try to help patients better understand their problems.
