How to treat a blocked artery

If you have a blocked heart valve, or you’re in an emergency situation, there are some steps you can take to ease the pressure.

The American College of Cardiology (ACC) says the most common type of heart surgery involves opening a blockage in your coronary artery.

In these cases, your surgeon will use a metal plate, called a stent, to insert a tube through your chest wall and into your heart.

If the tube is too large, the surgeon will then put an artificial valve in the area to try to keep it open.

But sometimes a blocked coronary artery has a hard time getting a valve to stay open.

The problem is called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and the risk of having this condition increases with age.

The most common symptoms of hypertrophic heart disease are: severe pain in your chest, chest pain, shortness of breath or chest pain that is so bad it makes you unable to breathe
