Coronary Artery Disease

  • Angina Pectoris
    Angina pectoris occurs when the heart muscle doesn't receive enough blood and oxygen for a given level of work.
  • Atherosclerosis
    Atherosclerosis is a type of arteriosclerosis caused by a build-up of plaque in the inner lining of an artery.
  • Coronary Heart Disease
    A person with coronary heart disease has an accumulation of fatty deposits in the coronary arteries. These deposits narrow the arteries and can decrease or block the flow of blood to the heart.
  • Inflammation: The Body's New Bad Guy
    Chronic inflammation damages the inside of coronary arteries and leaves them prone to plaque that clogs the blood vessels. That leads to clots that cause heart attacks.
  • Medical Symptoms You Should Never Ignore
    Some symptoms may indicate the possibility of a serious condition and should be evaluated immediately by a health care provider.
  • Understanding Angina
    Angina is a condition characterized by recurring pain or discomfort in the chest. Not all chest pain or discomfort is angina, but all chest pain should be checked out by a doctor.
