a group of conditions where the supply and demand for oxygenated blood to the heart is not balanced. It is usually caused by reduced blood supply to the heart.
coronary heart disease (also known as ischemic heart disease): a type of heart disease in which the arteries that supply blood to the heart muscle become narrowed or blocked by plaque, reducing or stopping the blood flow to the heart muscle, depriving the muscle of needed oxygen. Such blockages may result in angina or a heart attack.
When the walls of the coronary arteries become narrowed by a gradual build-up of fatty material called atheroma. When atheroma affects the coronary arteries, it can cause angina, heart attack or sudden death.
a condition in which the cororonary arteries narrow
Angina pectoris, chest pains caused by insufficient supply of blood and thus oxygen to the heart; and myocardial infarction, or heart attack, in which the blood and oxygen supply is reduced so much that heart muscles are damaged.
Disease caused by furring-up of the coronary arteries with atherosclerosis deposits. Symptoms include breathlessness, angina and heart attacks
Atherosclerosis of the coronary arteries. Also called coronary artery disease.
See coronary artery disease.
decreased flow of blood to the heart muscle; the cause is usually due to atherosclerosis of the coronary arteries
Presence of CAD with symptoms (angina or heart attack). Also called atherosclerotic heart disease (ASHD)
Heart disease resulting from atherosclerosis in the coronary arteries: it may cause angina, a heart attack, or sudden death.
Disorders that restrict the blood supply to the heart, including atherosclerosis.
A condition that begins when hard cholesterol substances (plaques) are deposited within a coronary artery. The plaques in the coronary arteries can rupture and cause the formation of a tiny clot, which can obstruct the flow of blood to the heart muscle, producing symptoms and signs of CHD that may include chest pain (angina), heart attack or sudden death due to a fatal disturbance of the heart rhythm. Also known as coronary artery disease (CAD).
also called Ischaemic Heart Disease: the disease in which the arteries supplying blood to the heart are seriously narrowed by atherosclerosis, causing angina and, sometimes, a heart attack.
Any disease of the heart caused by coronary artery disease, although it usually refers to heart attack and angina.
heart disease caused by impaired circulation in one or more coronary arteries; often manifests as chest pain (angina pectoris) or heart attack. Also referred to as coronary artery disease, Ischemic heart disease, or heart disease.
Coronary heart disease describes conditions related to the heart and blood vessels leading to and from the heart. Most common conditions are chest pains, heart attacks, stroke and high blood pressure.
Heart disease resulting from the atherosclerotic narrowings of coronary artery disease.
disease of the blood vessels surrounding the heart. The main risk factors for developing CHD are high blood pressure, smoking and high blood cholesterol levels. All of these risk factors can be improved by changes in lifestyle and related medical treatments.
Deterioration of the heart caused by narrowing or clogging of arteries supplying the heart muscles, with resulting chest pain, heart attacks, and damage to the heart.
The effect of an inadequate supply of oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscle (myocardium) because of narrowing or blocking of a coronary artery by fatty and fibrous tissue. American Heart Association National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute Information Center
A disease of the blood vessels of the heart that, if untreated, can cause heart attacks. Like any muscle, the heart needs a constant supply of oxygen and nutrients that are carried to it by the blood in the coronary arteries. When these arteries become narrowed or clogged by atherosclerosis and cannot supply enough blood to the heart, the result is coronary heart disease.
The narrowing of the blood vessels that supply blood and oxygen to the heart.
This appears in 2 main forms - angina and heart attacks.
a condition in which the coronary arteries narrow from an accumulation of plaque (atherosclerosis) and cause a decrease in blood flow.
Coronary heart disease is the result of clogged coronary arteries. When these arteries get filled with fat, they cannot transport blood to the heart. This disease tends to be hereditary and is very common in North America.
(CHD) refers to the three main arteries that supply blood from the heart. A coronary by-pass is a surgical operation to provide a new route for blood to reach the heart when coronary arteries become blocked.
also known as ischaemic heart disease.
The most common form of heart disease. This type of heart disease is caused by a narrowing of the coronary arteries that feed the heart, which results in not enough oxygen-carrying blood reaching the heart. (Read about " Coronary Heart Disease")
This is the most common form of heart disease, which involves a reduction in the blood supply to the heart muscle by narrowing or blockage of the coronary arteries. It is often characterized by myocardial infarction (heart attack), angina pectoris (chest pain), and atherosclerosis in the coronary arteries.
a narrowing of the coronary arteries that results in inadequate blood flow to the heart
decreased blood flow to the heart's muscles from narrowing or blockage of coronary arteries
The clogging of blood vessels that nourish the heart muscle. This disease is the leading cause of death in the United States Reference: H1
Diseases of the heart muscle and the blood vessels that supply it with oxygen, including heart attack.
The type of heart disease due to narrowing of the coronary arteries.
(ischemic heart disease) - Nr. 1 cause of death in U.S. It causes reduced blood flow to the heart; typically caused by arteriosclerosis, a calcification of the arteries.
heart disease associated with obstruction of the coronary blood vessels that supply blood (& oxygen) to the heart
A type of heart disease caused by narrowing of the coronary arteries that feed the heart, which needs a constant supply of oxygen and nutrients carried by the blood in the coronary arteries. When the coronary arteries become narrowed or clogged by fat and cholesterol deposits and cannot supply enough blood to the heart, CHD results.
disease of the heart caused by atherosclorotic narrowing of the coronary arteries likely to produce angina pectoris (heart attack).
also known as coronary artery disease and coronary disease, coronary heart disease is the result of atherosclerosis of the coronary arteries. Atherosclerosis may result in narrowing or blockage of the coronary arteries and is the underlying cause of myocardial infarction (heart attack).
A disease in which plaque deposits containing cholesterol atherosclerosis and fat globules are deposited within the intima and inner media of large and medium-sized arteries.
A condition that occurs when the buildup of cholesterol and fat in the arteries cause them to become too narrow and blocks the flow of blood.
A disease develops when one or more of the coronary arteries that supply the blood to the heart become narrower than they used to be. This happens because of a build-up of cholesterol and other substances in the wall of the blood vessel, affecting the blood flow to the heart muscle. Without an adequate blood supply, heart muscle tissue can be damaged
See ischemic heart disease.
Atherosclerosis. Narrowing of coronary arteries narrow.
Heart disease caused by narrowing of the arteries that supply blood to the heart. If the blood supply is cut off the result is a heart attack.
Occurs when the walls of the coronary arteries become narrowed by a gradual fatty build-up. Heart attack and angina are main symptoms.
Condition of the blood vessels of the heart caused by the build up of atheroma on the vesse walls.
Coronary heart disease (or coronary artery disease) is the most common form of heart disease and affects the blood vessels (or coronary arteries) of the heart. It causes angina (chest pain) and heart attacks. High blood pressure and cholesterol, smoking, obesity and not being physically active all put individuals at risk for coronary heart disease.
Also called Coronary Artery Disease (CAD). CHD is a condition that results when the coronary arteries are narrowed by atherosclerotic deposits of fibrous and fatty tissue. Coronary artery disease is the most common underlying cause of cardiovascular disability and death. Men are affected about four times as frequently as women. Risk factors include hypertension, high cholesterol, smoking, diabetes and adverse reactions to mental stress. After menopause women are also at risk.
A type of CVD caused by atherosclerosis of the coronary arteries, leading to a reduced blood supply to the heart muscle. This can result in myocardial infarction, also known as heart attack, or chest pain of heart origin, known as angina.
Coronary heart disease (CHD), also called coronary artery disease (CAD), ischaemic heart disease, and atherosclerotic heart disease, is the end result of the accumulation of atheromatous plaques within the walls of the arteries that supply the myocardium (the muscle of the heart). While the symptoms and signs of coronary hear advanced state of disease, most individuals with coronary heart disease show no evidence of disease for decades as the disease progresses before the first onset of symptoms, often a "sudden" heart attack, finally arise. After decades of progression, some of these atheromatous plaques may rupture and (along with the activation of the blood clotting system) start limiting blood flow to the heart muscle.
