Any disease that affects the heart and blood vessels, its components. Some examples are hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis), high blood pressure (hypertension), heart attacks, heart failure, and stroke and TIA (transient ischemic attack).
may refer to any of the disorders that can affect the circulatory system, but often means coronary heart disease (CHD), heart failure, and stroke, taken together.
Refers to diseases of the heart and diseases of the blood vessel system (arteries, capillaries, veins) within a person's entire body, such as the brain, legs, and lungs.

Any disease of the heart or blood vessels (e.g. stroke, ischaemic heart disease, peripheral vascular disease). The major cause of death in developed countries. Also referred to as circulatory disease. ICD-9 Codes 390-459. ICD-10 Codes I00-I99.
(CVD) is the general term for disease to the heart and related blood vessels.
disease of the heart or vessels of the circulation.
A term for disease of the heart and blood vessels. Such diseases include peripheral vascular disease, narrowing or damage to the vessels in the arms, legs, and feet. Narrowing or damage to the vessels in the brain which can lead to stroke and other complications.
CVD, CVHD Any disease that involves the heart and blood vessels Includes heart attacks (both thrombic and hemorrhagic), angina, high blood pressure, heart value malfunction, atherosclerosis and rheumatic heart disease Includes strokes (both ischemic and thrombic) Is the number one cause of death in the world
Any abnormal condition of the heart or blood vessels. Cardiovascular disease includes coronary heart disease, stroke, congestive heart failure, peripheral vascular disease, congenital heart disease, endocarditis, and many other conditions.
disease of the heart and blood vessels, the most common form is coronary artery disease.
A common -- and serious -- complication of diabetes. Most people with diabetes ultimately die of cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular disease is a condition of the heart (cardio) and blood vessels (vascular) in which the arteries become narrowed by fatty, cholesterol-rich deposits known as atherosclerotic plaques. Once narrowed, circulation becomes impaired. The cells of the heart do not receive enough nourishment and oxygen to pump sufficient blood for the body's needs. Blood pressure rises, and the heart becomes fatigued. If an artery in the heart becomes completely blocked by atherosclerotic plaques, the blood supply to part of the heart gets cut off (coronary artery disease), and the result is a heart attack. If an artery in the brain becomes completely blocked by atherosclerotic plaques, blood supply to part of that organ gets cut off, and the result is a stroke.
Disease relating to the heart and blood vessels (CVD).
Diagnosing and treating the diseases of the heart and blood vessels.
any disease of the heart or blood vessels, including atherosclerosis, cardiomyopathy, coronary artery disease, peripheral vascular disease, and others.
Any of a diverse group of diseases characterized by the debilitation of the heart and/or blood vessels.
a disease of the heart or blood vessels.2
A general term meaning an aging heart and blood vessels that can lead to strokes and heart attacks.
According to the American Heart Association, the risk factors for cardiovascular disease are no longer just smoking, hypertension and high blood cholesterol, but also include "lack of exercise". Not only aerobic exercise such as walking, cycling, jogging and swimming is beneficial, but also resistance training has recently been added to the evidence as an important contributor to the prevention and management of cardiovascular disease.
diseases of the heart and circulatory system. These can include heart disease, atherosclerosis, peripheral arterial disease, and others.
A medical condition relating to the heart and the blood vessels or circulation.
Includes CHD (about 50%), stroke (about 25%), and other circulatory system diseases.
a general grouping of diseases of the heart and blood vessels.
Cardiovascular diseases are defined as diseases and injuries of the circulatory system: the heart, the blood vessels of the heart, and the system of blood vessels throughout the body and to (and in) the brain. Stroke is the result of a blood flow problem within, or leading to, the brain and is considered a form of cardiovascular disease.
Generic term that covers a wide range of vascular and heart-related diseases and disorders.
A disease affecting the blood vessels or heart. Women with PCOS are at increased risk for early-onset cardiovascular disease.
General term used to describe disorders affecting the heart and/or blood vessels. The main cause of CVD is atherosclerosis. CVD includes coronary heart disease (CHD), cerebrovascular disease (CBVD) and peripheral vascular disease (PVD).
