Genetic Heart Disease Treatment in Burlington, VT

There are a number of treatment options for genetic heart disease. We will work with you to create a treatment plan that offers you the best outcome.

Treatment options include:

  • Medication
  • Surgery

Medication for Genetic Heart Disease

We may prescribe medication to lower your blood pressure. This helps prevent the aorta from enlarging and possibly tearing.

Surgery for Genetic Heart Disease

We may recommend heart surgery to treat your condition. If your aorta enlarges quickly or reaches a dangerous size, we may decide to replace part of your aorta with synthetic material. We may also need to perform valve replacement surgery.
