CAD--Coronary Artery Disease - Coronary Heart Disease

21, 2014 Coronary Artery Disease (CAD), is a condition in which plaque builds up inside the coronary arteries. These arteries supply oxygen-rich blood to your heart muscle. This plaque is made up of fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances found in the blood. When plaque builds up in the arteries, the condition is called atherosclerosis, the buildup of plaque occurs over many years. Over time, the plaque hardens which causes your coronary arteries to narrow, which limits the amount...

Coronary Artery Disease

Coronary Artery Disease 10/31/2005 This paper will serve as a case study for the condition known as coronary artery disease (CAD). CAD occurs when the coronary arteries become hardened and narrowed; this is due to the buildup of plaque on the inner lining of the arteries. Blood flow to the heart is reduced as plaque narrows the coronary arteries, thereby decreasing the oxygen supply to the heart muscle. This loss of oxygen in the blood can lead to ischemia and later, myocardial infarction...

Coronary Artery Disease

 Coronary artery disease is also known as atherosclerosis disease, coronary heart disease, or ischemic heart disease. It is the most common type of heart disease. It is the leading cause of deaths in the U.S in both men and women. When plaque builds up, they harden and narrow your coronary arteries, decreasing blood flow to your heart. The lack of blood flow can lead to chest pain, shortness of breath, or other coronary artery disease signs and symptoms. A complete blockage can cause a heart attack...

Coronary Artery Disease

ABSTRACT Coronary artery disease (CAD), also known as coronary heart disease (CHD) or coronary atherosclerosis, involves the progressive narrowing of the arteries that nourish the heart muscle. Often there are no symptoms, but if one or more of these arteries become severely narrowed, angina may develop during exercise, stress, or other times when the heart muscle is not getting enough blood. Your coronary arteries are the major blood vessels that supply your heart with blood, oxygen and nutrients...

Heart Disease

Angioplasty: A stent is a mess tube used to treat narrow or weak arteries (blood vessels that carry blood away from the heart to other parts of the body). The stent is placed in the artery as part of an Angioplasty procedure. Angioplasty restores blood flow into narrow or blocked arteries. The stent helps to support the inner wall of the artery after the angioplasty. Doctors also place stents in weak arteries to improve blood flow and prevent arteries from bursting. Valve Replacement If one or more of...
