Cardiovascular disease — including heart disease and stroke — is the leading cause of death in the United States. It is also one of the most complex diseases to treat. But it is also preventable and manageable through early diagnosis, risk assessment, lifestyle changes and various medications and treatments.

Whether you have one or more risk factors that might increase your chances of a first heart attack or have previously suffered from cardiovascular disease, UofL Health - Cardiology experts can help improve your quality of life and prevent future cardiovascular problems.

Who should participate in a Preventive Cardiology Program?

Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of men and women in the United States. If you want to lower your risk of cardiovascular disease, have multiple risk factors, or have specific conditions that increase your risk of cardiovascular disease (for example rheumatoid arthritis or lupus), this program is for you. Even if you already have cardiovascular disease, you can take control and manage your risk factors to keep the condition from getting worse.

Primary and Secondary Prevention

There are two main types of prevention ─ primary and secondary.

  • Primary prevention is focused on preventing heart and vascular disease before a patient has a cardiac event, such as a heart attack or stroke or needs cardiovascular surgery.
  • Secondary prevention involves patients who have had a cardiac event, such as heart or vascular surgery, angioplasty or heart attack. The focus is on preventing cardiovascular disease from getting worse.
