Support for Heart Attack with No Blockage

If you are diagnosed with heart attack with no blockage, it is crucial that you continue with follow-up care beyond your initial recovery, to reduce your risk of future heart events. During regular follow-up appointments, our team evaluates your progress, helps you understand any side effects of treatment, adjusts medications if necessary, and offers continuous, personalized care.

Our services support your physical and psychological needs to help you recover and maintain heart health after experiencing a heart attack with no blockage.

Rehabilitation Services

Our cardiologists work with specialists at NYU Langone’s Joan and Joel Smilow Cardiac Prevention and Rehabilitation Center to design a safe and effective cardiovascular exercise program. This can help you decrease future heart risk, improve physical strength and endurance, reduce symptoms, and enhance overall wellbeing.

Nutrition Counseling

Our nutritionists provide dietary counseling to help you manage your cholesterol levels, blood pressure, and weight—all important factors to improve heart health. Through our Heart Healthy Nutrition Program, we offer menu planning to help you adapt your everyday diet to reach heart-healthy goals.

Psychological Services

At NYU Langone, our doctors understand that a heart attack with no blockage can cause anxiety and depression—especially if your symptoms were previously dismissed by a doctor. We offer behavioral health support, with strategies for stress management and counseling, if needed. In addition, we encourage our patients to join our cardiac support groups, where they can share experiences, learn from the experiences of others, and find emotional support. We can also refer you to psychiatrists in our network if you need additional medical support for anxiety or depression.
