Heart and Cardiovascular Surgery for Coronary Heart Disease:

Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment at San Antonio

Coronary artery disease refers to a narrowing of the coronary arteries, the blood vessels that supply oxygen and blood to the heart. It is also known as coronary heart disease. It is a major cause of illness and death.

Coronary artery disease (CAD) normally happens when cholesterol accumulates on the artery walls, creating plaques. The arteries narrow, reducing blood flow to the heart. Sometimes, a clot can obstruct the flow of blood to the heart muscle.
