What is heart disease?Coronary artery disease (CAD) is usually caused by atherosclerosis, which occurs when fatty material and plaque build up on the walls of the arteries and cause them to narrow. As the coronary arteries narrow, blood flow to the heart can be partially or completely blocked. This results in a lack of oxygen to the heart muscle, which leads to chest pain. Coronary artery disease can also be the root cause of a heart attack, or lead to the chronic condition known as heart failure. Coronary artery disease affects millions of Americans. Once limited almost entirely to older people, it is now beginning to appear in younger folks, a change driven by the rising tides of obesity and type 2 diabetes.

The cardiovascular system consists of the heart and blood vessels.[1] There is a wide array of problems that may arise within the cardiovascular system, for example, endocarditis, rheumatic heart disease, abnormalities in the conduction system, among others, cardiovascular disease (CVD) or heart disease refer to the following 4 entities that are the focus of this article[2].

An estimated 17 million people die of CVDs, particularly heart attacks and strokes, every year. A substantial number of these deaths can be attributed to tobacco smoking, which increases the risk of dying from coronary heart disease and cerebrovascular disease 2–3 fold.

Physical inactivity and unhealthy diet are other main risk factors which. Specifically, in coronary artery disease, coronary percutaneous interventions have rapidly become a prevalent treatment with impressive results concerning efficacy and safety.

Novel materials and devices like bioabsorbable scaffolds and polymer-free and self-expanding stents have been developed recently, offering additional options in the. Coronary heart disease is the main form of heart disease.

It occurs when the coronary arteries, which supply blood to the heart muscle, become hardened and narrowed due to a buildup of plaque on the arteries’ inner walls. Plaque is the accumulation of cholesterol, fat, and other Size: 1MB. Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a class of diseases that involve the heart or blood vessels.

CVD includes coronary artery diseases (CAD) such as angina and myocardial infarction (commonly known as a heart attack). Other CVDs include stroke, heart failure, hypertensive heart disease, rheumatic heart disease, cardiomyopathy, abnormal heart rhythms, congenital heart disease, valvular heart Specialty: Cardiology.

Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the major cause of death in most developed countries and in many developing countries. Thrombogenic factors increase the risk of acute coronary occlusion and stroke and may play a causal role. Health-related behavior is important in the management of these factors and includes smoking cessation, reduction of Cited by:   Many resources are available for health professionals to support heart disease prevention.

Coronary artery disease is the most common underlying cause of cardiovascular disability and death. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in developed nations despite known ways to prevent and treat heart problems. One common type of heart disease is called coronary heart disease, sometimes referred to as coronary artery arteries of the heart (coronary arteries) supply blood flow to the heart (buildup of fatty material) damages the coronary arteries, and Cited by:   Coronary heart disease (CHD), or coronary artery disease, develops when the coronary arteries become too narrow.

The coronary arteries are the blood vessels that supply oxygen and blood to. CP and the Heart and Stroke Foundation is ensuring that life-saving discoveries continue. Through the CP Has Heart program, CP has committed $3 million for 10 research awards that fund ground-breaking cardiac research.

Coronary artery disease develops when the major blood vessels that supply your heart with blood, oxygen and nutrients (coronary arteries) become damaged or diseased.

Heart disease has many causes, including genetics, atherosclerosis, and smoking. Treatment for heart disease depends on the cause. Coronary artery disease (CAD) is characterized by disease within the arteries that supply the heart muscle.

The disease typically develops due to atherosclerosis (hardening) and plaques (sections of calcified material) within the blood vessels. As a result, the coronary arteries often cannot carry blood as efficiently as they should and may even become completely obstructed (blocked off).
