What’s Your Heart’s Age

Cottage Heart & Vascular Center - What's Your Heart's Age - Health Assessment

Use this tool to find out if your heart age is higher or lower than your actual age. Anyone can use the tool, even if you don't know your blood pressure and cholesterol. However, without these numbers, your result will be an estimate and we recommend you get tested to get an accurate result.

After completing the online assessment, you'll receive a free personalized report that outlines important information about your heart health, including heart age, 10- and 30-year cardiovascular disease risk, and cardiovascular disease risk factors.

This report can be printed and downloaded. We encourage you to print your report and bring it to your next appointment with your physician.

Conditions and Advanced Treatments

Heart Valve
DiseaseHeart Icon Valve

Heart Valve Disease

Lack of proper functioning in one or more of the four heart valves that open and close to keep blood flowing in the correct direction through your heart. With surgery, valves can be repaired, or replaced with an artificial valve.

Treatments Offered:

Mitral
Regurgitation
Heart Icon Mitral

Mitral Regurgitation

Mitral Regurgitation is a condition that prevents the mitral valve, located between the heart’s two left chambers, from closing completely. This causes blood to leak backwards back inside the heart.

Treatment Offered:

  • MitraClip® Procedure- A procedure that is less invasive than traditional open-heart surgery. Doctors access the mitral valve with a thin tube (called a catheter) that is guided through a vein in your leg to reach your heart. Patients are usually released from the hospital within 2 to 3 days.

Arrhythmia
(AFib)Heart Icon Arrhythmia (AFib)

Arrhythmia (AFib)

Arrhythmia, or AFib, is an irregular heartbeat that may prevent the heart from pumping enough blood to the body, causing tiredness or dizziness. In severe cases, it can cause heart attack.

Treatments Offered:

  • Ablation - Insertion of a thin tube through a vein to the heart to deliver a charge that destroys areas of tissue causing the abnormal electrical signals
  • Left Atrial Appendage Closure - Closing of a pouch in the top left chamber of the heart, where — in people with irregular heartbeats — blood may linger and clot, leading to stroke when the clot is pumped out of the heart.
  • Watchman Implant - An implant for closing the left atrial appendage. The implant is delivered through a tube (catheter) in a minimally invasive procedure.
  • Pacemaker Implant - A small device inserted into the chest or abdomen to send electrical pulses to the heart and normalize heart rhythm.

Congenital Heart
DiseaseHeart Icon Congenital Heart Disease

Congenital Heart Disease

Congenital heart diseases are abnormalities in the heart that are present from birth, including:

Treatments Offered:

  • Open-heart surgery
  • Interventional heart catheterization - A mesh closure device is inserted into a tube (catheter) and threaded through a vein into the heart. The device is positioned to cover the hole or channel in the heart.

Coronary Artery
DiseaseHeart Icon Artery

Coranary Artery Disease

Hardening and narrowing of arteries that supply blood to the heart, caused by build up of cholesterol (plaque) on the inner walls of the arteries. This decreases blood and oxygen flow to and from the heart and can lead to heart attack.

Treatments Offered:

  • Angioplasty - A surgical repair of a narrowed or blocked artery or vein. A thin tube with a balloon is inserted through a blood vessel in the arm or groin into the artery and then inflated to push plaque outward and restore blood flow.
  • Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery - Surgery to remove and relocate a healthy blood vessel from another part of the body to send blood to the heart, bypassing the damaged artery.
  • Stent Placement including bioresorbable - A small mesh tube placed through a blood vessel in the groin or arm, used to hold open an artery. Depending on the type of tube used, tissue grows over the mesh, or the tube eventually dissolves after the artery is opened and healed.

TAVR PROCEDURE

Cottage Health TAVR Patient - Louie

At 90 years old, Louie was experiencing fatigue and those around him attributed it to age. Specialists at the Cottage Heart and Vascular Center recommended TAVR, a non-surgical replacement of his valve.
