First Heart Healthy Lunch SOLD OUT! Back by popular demand! Coronary artery disease develops when the major blood vessels that supply your heart with blood, oxygen and nutrients (coronary arteries) become damaged or diseased. Cholesterol-containing deposits (plaque) in your arteries and inflammation are usually to blame for coronary artery disease. When plaque builds up, it narrows your coronary arteries, decreasing blood flow to your heart. This year’s 2nd Heart Healthly Lunch will feature Cardiologist Vijaya Velury, M.D. of the Heart & Vascular Center. Dr. Velury will discuss Coronary Artery Disease, the unique signs and symptoms, and how to modify risk factors for a longer, healthier life.

Absorbable Stent

NEW Absorbable Stent Technology

Comanche County Memorial Hospital is the first hospital in the state of Oklahoma to perform a fully dissolvable stent procedure outside of a clinical trial.

The Absorb dissolving heart stent is the first and only device of its kind – a drug eluting coronary stent that dissolves, completely and naturally, in the body over time. Absorb treats coronary artery disease like a standard metallic stent, propping the diseased vessel open to restore blood flow, but then disappears after the artery is healed, leaving no metal behind to restrict natural vessel motion.
