Coronary Heart Disease: Overview

Coronary Heart Disease is heart disease due to obstructions or narrowing of the major heart arteries. It is also called Coronary Artery Disease (CAD), ischemic heart disease (IHD), or atherosclerotic heart disease. Major heart arteries may have “narrowing of the arteries” from arteriosclerosis (atherosclerosis), which causes reduced blood flow (ischemia) to the heart.
