KEEPING YOUR HEART HEALTHY WITH BREAKTHROUGH MEDICAL TECHNOLOGIES
A healthy heart is essential to good health. That’s why at Abbott, we throw our heart into advancing the treatment of cardiovascular disease. Our breakthrough medical technologies are minimally invasive, helping restore people’s health, so they can get back to living their best lives, faster.
We focus on innovative technologies that have the potential to improve the way doctors treat people with vascular diseases, including diseases of arteries within and outside of the heart, heart arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats) and diseases of the heart valves.
As we age, plaque can build up inside the heart’s arteries, eventually reducing or blocking the flow of blood. Abbott offers leading treatments for coronary artery disease, including an extensive range of drug-eluting stents, bare metal stents, balloon dilatation catheters, and other minimally invasive devices.
Arteries outside of the heart – in the legs, abdomen, arms and neck for example – can become obstructed by plaque and have reduced blood flow. Our full range of minimally invasive peripheral stents, guide wires, dilatation catheters and guiding catheters opens blockages in the arteries caused by plaque buildup to help people regain an active life.
Diseases of the heart’s valves can reduce the abilty of the heart to pump blood effectively. Our innovative therapies repair valves with minimally invasive treatments that help speed recovery and let people get back to their daily activities faster with fewer complications.
Serious heart rhythm disorders called arrhythmias affect the lives of millions of people. Atrial fibrillation, one of the most common types of arrhythmias, is a malfunction of the heart's electrical system that causes it to beat irregularly. Abbott's electrophysiology technology helps doctors identify the unique sources of arrhythmias, enabling them to tailor their treatment approaches.
