Stroke & Heart Attack Prevention Q&A

What is stroke and heart attack prevention?

Stroke and heart attack prevention means taking steps to avoid life-threatening health problems and even death. At the Center for Antiaging Aesthetic and Rejuvenation Medicine PLLC, Dr. Smith offers comprehensive stroke and heart attack prevention, including extensive testing, lifestyle guidance, and treatments that all work together to help you stay healthy. 

How does stroke and heart attack prevention work?

Stroke and heart attack prevention starts with specialized testing, including:

 

Cleerly test

About 70% of people who have heart attacks are considered low-risk based on traditional risk evaluation methods, and 75% of the cardiac lesions that cause heart attacks only cause mild narrowing in the arteries. Cleerly can predict heart attacks that traditional approaches miss. 

Cleerly starts with a coronary computerized tomography angiography (CCTA) test. The AI-based platform analyzes this imaging to check every coronary artery and branch for atherosclerosis (plaque buildup). It identifies the amount, type, and rupture risk level for all plaques. 

 

Protein unstable lesion signature (PULS) test

The PULS blood test checks for the number one cause of heart attacks: unstable cardiac lesion rupture. This test looks for the protein biomarkers that indicate undetected coronary heart disease. The PULS test works well alongside the Cleerly test.

 

Vibrant Wellness CardiaX test

The CardiaX test is a health analytics tool that evaluates your genetics in detail. The test can determine your predisposed risk factors for heart, vascular, and metabolic diseases and, by extension, your risk of heart attack and stroke.

As a former cardiac anesthesiologist with nearly 40 years of wide-ranging experience, Dr. Smith has the unique experience needed to perform and interpret the most advanced tests.

 

What are the benefits of stroke and heart attack prevention tests?

Stroke and heart attack prevention tests allow you to detect an issue early, even years before a catastrophic event like a heart attack or stroke actually happens. 

You can use this knowledge to make changes in your life now, while there’s still time to prevent a life-threatening event.

Dr. Smith can help you do so in various ways, from weight loss to healthy eating and regular exercise. In addition, he can prescribe medication or other treatments that help you take control of your health and prevent problems.
