Clinical Information For the Treatment Of Heart Disease

What Is Heart Disease?


Heart Disease - Basics

The most common type of heart disease is coronary artery disease, a condition characterized by the build-up of plaque in the coronary arteries, which carry oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscle. As a result, blood flow to the heart reduces, and the blocked blood vessels become susceptible to forming a blood clot. CAD can also cause heart attack, arrhythmias, and heart failure. Risk factors for CAD include diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking and being overweight.
