Coronary Artery and Heart Disease

Coronary Artery and Heart Disease

Coronary artery disease

These are diseases of the arteries that supply the heart muscle with blood. Sometimes known as CAD, coronary artery disease is one of the most common forms of heart disease and the leading cause of heart attacks. It generally means that blood flow through the coronary arteries has become obstructed. The most common cause of such obstructions is a condition called atherosclerosis, a largely preventable type of vascular disease. Coronary artery disease can lead to other heart problems, such as chest pain (angina) and heart attack (myocardial infarction).

Coronary heart disease

Though similar sounding, this isn't quite the same thing as coronary artery disease. You can impress your cardiologist on your next visit — if not your colleagues around the water cooler — if you can explain the difference. Coronary heart disease is a broader term that refers collectively to both diseases of the coronary arteries and their resulting complications, such as chest pain, heart attacks and even scar tissue caused by the heart attack. Remember, coronary artery disease is a disease affecting only the arteries. A heart attack, in contrast, affects the heart muscle.
