About Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)

Coronary artery disease (CAD) is an impedance or blockage of one or more of the major blood vessels that supply the heart, preventing blood, oxygen and nutrients from reaching critical regions of the body. Changes in the arterial wall are caused by the accumulation of lipids, calcium, blood components, carbohydrates and fibrous tissue in the endothelial lining referred to as plaque or atherosclerosis. When the blood flow to the heart’s muscles is limited, referred to as ischemia, it can be symptomatic or asymptomatic, this may occur with exertion or at rest, and depending on obstruction severity and the rapidity of development may culminate in a myocardial infarction (heart attack). CAD can weaken the heart muscle and often leads to heart failure and arrhythmias.
