Coronary Artery Disease

Coronary artery disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, with more than 13 million people currently diagnosed. This is an occlusive disease of the arterial blood vessels characterized by the accumulation of cholesterol deposits and other fatty materials which reduce the flow of blood to the heart. When the blockage becomes clinically significant, chest pain or “angina” and possibly a heart attack or infarction “MI” may occur. More than 1 million coronary artery bypass or angioplasty procedures are performed every year in the United States
