Coronary Artery Disease:

Overview:

  • Coronary artery disease is a narrowing of the coronary arteries, which supply blood, oxygen, and nutrients to your heart. When plaque builds up inside the arteries, a process knows as atherosclerosis, the blood flow to the heart is partially blocked, leading to chest pain, or angina.

Symptoms:

  • Symptoms of coronary artery disease most commonly include chest pain, or angina. Patients may also experience shortness of breath. If blood flow is completely restricted, a heart attack may occur.

Risk Factors and Causes:

  • Risk of developing coronary artery disease increases in patients that smoke, are overweight, are diabetic, have high blood pressure, have high cholesterol, or have a family history of coronary artery disease.

Treatment:

  • Coronary artery disease is treated through lifestyle modifications, as well as through the use of medications, and in some cases using more invasive procedures. Patients are encouraged to live healthier lifestyles, exercise, quit smoking, eat healthier foods, and control blood pressure and cholesterol.
