Heart disease, also known as cardiac disease or cardiovascular disease, is the number-one cause of death in the United States. More than 800,000 Americans die each year of heart disease—almost one in three deaths nationwide. Many heart conditions, however, can be treated with cardiac surgery, as well as with lifestyle modifications (such as not smoking and staying active) and with medications.
