Excellence in Cardiology
Minneapolis Heart Institute® at Abbott Northwestern Hospital ranked #1 in the Twin Cities and #22 nationally in cardiology and heart surgery by US News & World Report Best Hospitals list.
Minneapolis Heart Institute – Baxter pleased with latest Minnesota health scores
Minneapolis Heart Institute® – Baxter ranked number one for cardiology clinics and received the highest composite scores for patient experience overall as noted in results released this week by MN Community Measurement in partnership with the Minnesota Health Department.
These cardiologists from Minneapolis Heart Institute® bring heart health care to the Baxter area.
Angina is chest pain caused by poor blood flow through the blood vessels of the heart muscle.
Heart attack happens when an artery that feeds your heart muscle becomes blocked with plaque (fatty deposits) or by a clot. When the blood cannot flow to the heart, damage or death to the heart muscle may occur.
Heart rhythm problems
Arrhythmia or dysrhythmia is an irregular heartbeat or rhythm. There are many kinds.
High blood pressure
Blood pressure is the amount of pressure within the walls of your arteries. High blood pressure is increased pressure against artery walls.
Peripheral artery disease (PAD)
Peripheral artery disease (PAD) occurs when plaque clogs the arteries in your legs, reducing blood flow to your legs and feet.
A stroke results when blood and oxygen flow to the brain is stopped or interrupted. This happens because of a ruptured or blocked blood vessel.
This simple, non-invasive test can detect heart disease in its earliest stages. Early detection means it's still possible to slow, stop or reverse heart disease.
The number one killer in the United States, cardiovascular disease affects the heart and blood vessels. Our experts can identify, treat and help you manage cardiac conditions.
The Preventive Cardiology Clinic offers programs for adults who are at risk for heart attacks, strokes and other cardiovascular diseases — as well as for people who have experienced cardiovascular problems.
Four out of five Minnesota women are at risk for heart disease. This program tailors cardiovascular care to fit the specific needs of women.
Cardiac Device Clinic: Pacemaker and ICD follow up
If a pacemaker or ICD (implantable cardioverter defibrillator) helps regulate your heartbeat, we can make sure your cardiac device is working properly. Our experts will evaluate your cardiac device and adjust settings so that you benefit the most.
The Center for Advanced Heart Failure Treatment brings together a team who specializes in heart failure and understands how to manage it. It offers a full range of treatments including stem cell therapy, specialized surgeries, ventricular assist devices (VAD), and heart transplants.
Vascular & Endovascular Services provides comprehensive care to individuals with vascular health conditions and diseases.
When you have a rhythm problem with your heart (usually when it beats too slowly or if both sides of your heart don't beat together), you may need a pacemaker. A pacemaker is a medical device that can help your heart beat regularly.
ICD (implantable cardioverter defibrillator)
If your heart is beating too fast or irregularly, your doctor may decide that you need a device that gives your heart an electrical shock to restore your heart to a regular rhythm. This device is called an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD).
Tests and screenings
An echocardiogram uses sound waves to create a moving picture of the heart.
Stress echocardiography uses ultrasound imaging to determine how the heart muscles respond to stress. It is mainly used to diagnose and evaluate coronary artery disease.
A Holter monitor will record your heart rhythm during your everyday activities. For this test, you will wear a portable EKG machine. You will have this monitor for 24 or 48 hours.
This new tool uses a special type of CT scanner to get a three-dimensional view of your blood vessels. This allows doctors to see whether plaque has built up in the artery wall that may cause a future heart attack or symptoms.
Also called nuclear ventriculography, this test uses safe, radioactive materials called tracers to show the heart chambers.
