Dr. Longoria employs the latest diagnostic techniques and treatment options to deliver exceptional care for a variety of cardiovascular diseases.

Each patient has his or her own unique disease process that needs to be addressed in a comprehensive manner. Whether it may involve further studies or novel approaches (TAVR, mitral clip, watchman, thorascopic MAZE), we at Longoria Cardiovascular are here to help and guide one through the process.

Adult Heart Transplantion

A heart transplant is an operation in which a medical transplant team, led by a cardiothoracic surgeon, will replace your failing heart with a new donor heart. Transplantation is usually considered a last option for patients with end-stage heart failure who cannot be treated with medication or other types of surgery.

Aortic Dissection

Aortic dissection is relatively uncommon, but it is the most frequent emergency related to the human aorta. It affects approximately three people out of every 100,000 each year, most often men with high blood pressure in their 60s and 70s.

Aortic Valve Disease

The human heart has four valves—two on the left and two on the right. The aortic valve—the main outflow valve for the left heart—is the valve between the heart and the body. The aortic valve opens when the left ventricle squeezes to pump out blood, and closes in between heart beats to keep blood from going backward into the heart.

Atrial Fibrillation

What Is Atrial Fibrillation? Atrial fibrillation, or Afib, is the most common type of irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia).

Cardiac Rhythm Disturbances

Cardiac rhythm disturbances, sometimes known as heart rhythm disturbances or arrhythmias (uh-RITH-me-uhs), are abnormal or irregular heartbeats. These disturbances disrupt your heart’s electrical signals and can cause your heart to beat too fast, too slowly, or in an abnormal way.

Coronary Artery Disease

Coronary artery disease, sometimes referred to as coronary heart disease or atherosclerosis, is the most common form of heart disease. It is the number one cause of death among both men and women in the United States. According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), heart disease kills about 375,000 Americans every year. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates heart disease strikes someone in the US about once every 43 seconds.

Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting

Coronary artery bypass grafting, or CABG (pronounced “cabbage”), is a type of operation that improves blood flow to the heart. This surgery is used to treat coronary artery disease (CAD). CABG also is known as bypass surgery, coronary artery bypass surgery, and open heart surgery.

ECMO/Impella Placements

What Is ECMO? Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is a technique that replaces the functions of failing lungs and/or the heart.

Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD)

The LVAD is used for patients who have severe heart failure and don’t improve with medications and for those who are waiting for a heart transplant. Patients who receive an LVAD often experience less fatigue, more strength, and better breathing, as well as longer survival.

Mitral Valve Disease

The mitral valve is one of the two main valves on the left side of your heart. Normally, the mitral valve has two flaps (leaflets) that open and close, allowing blood to flow from your left atrium to your left ventricle and preventing it from flowing backward into the left atrium and lungs. Mitral valve disease occurs when the mitral valve doesn’t work properly.

TAVR

We encourage you to take some time to learn how your heart works and how each of the valves function. When you understand the specifics of what your doctor or healthcare team is trying to evaluate and accomplish through treatment, you’ll be better equipped to help make great decisions.

Thoracoscopic MAZE

Cardiac rhythm disturbances, sometimes known as heart rhythm disturbances or arrhythmias (uh-RITH-me-uhs), are abnormal or irregular heartbeats. These disturbances disrupt your heart’s electrical signals and can cause your heart to beat too fast, too slowly, or in an abnormal way.

Tricuspid Valve Disease

The tricuspid valve is one of the two main valves on the right side of your heart. Normally, the tricuspid valve has three flaps (leaflets) that open and close, allowing blood to flow from the right atrium to the right ventricle in your heart and preventing blood from flowing backward.
