A look at this disease, the risk factors, symptoms and possible complications including heart attack.
HeartPoint animation: this will take approximately 1 minute to load.
Coronary artery disease generally refers to the buildup of cholesterol in the inside layers of the arteries. As shown here, this will slowly narrow the flow of blood through the vessel, and the muscle it supplies will not get enough blood. The plaque weakens the wall. As shown in the lower artery, a crack may develop in the plaque and a blood clot may form - this is the mechanism of most heart attacks. Read on to learn more about this important disease. ©COPY;1997 HeartPoint Updated July 1997

    Coronary Artery Calcification
    CT detection Atherosclerotic heart disease is the number one cause of death. Methods of detecting coronary artery disease prior to fatal events are needed so that appropriate measures can be taken to reduce risk. Anatomic studies have established that coronary calcification is invariably located near areas of advanced atherosclerotic disease. A direct relation between the extent of coronary calcification and the severity of stenotic lesions or frequency of myocardial infarction is consistently observed in autopsy series. The more extensive the calcification, the more frequent and more severe the degree of stenosis. This relationship is recognized in all age groups and both sexes, but is more marked in younger patients.
    CT and in particular, electron-beam CT (EBCT) is the most sensitive radiographic method to detect coronary artery calcification. The value of EBCT can be summarized as follows:

    (En español) Coronary artery disease (CAD) affects almost 1.3 million Americans, making it the most common form of heart disease. CAD and its complications, like arrhythmia, angina pectoris, and heart attack (also called myocardial infarction), are the leading causes of death in the United States. CAD most often results from a condition known as atherosclerosis, which happens when a waxy substance forms inside the arteries that supply blood to your heart. This substance, called plaque, is made of cholesterol, fatty compounds, calcium, and a blood-clotting material called fibrin. Doctors have found that there are 2 kinds of plaque: hard and soft. Most people know about hard plaque and how it can cause a heart attack. If hard plaque builds up in the arteries that supply blood to your heart, the blood flow slows or stops. This decreases the amount of oxygen that gets to the heart, which can lead to a heart attack.

    Overview The problem is that many people who have this form of heart disease aren't aware they have it. Coronary artery disease, or coronary heart disease, develops slowly and silently, over decades. It can go virtually unnoticed until it produces a heart attack. How do you know whether you have this silent, potential killer? Your doctor can help answer that question based on test results and your level of risk. Risk factors for coronary artery disease include family history of heart disease, high blood cholesterol, high blood pressure, smoking, obesity and physical inactivity.

    While CAD can be a very dangerous disease, there are many means available to treat it. See and learn more by following the links. MEDICATIONS. Medications are very useful in the treatment of CAD, and are used in virtually every case. While the ideal medicine, one that would simply quietly and completely "dissolve" the blockages, has not yet been found, some classes of medicines to reduce the blockage to some degree are currently available. Blood thinners, often "simple" aspirin, is indicated in almost every case. Other medicines provide their relief by decreasing the amount of work the heart is asked to do (and subsequently decrease its need for blood) by lowering the pulse rate and blood pressure. ANGIOPLASTY. There are now several types of procedures which work on the inside of the arteries with catheters introduced from the groin. "Balloon" procedures (PTCA) were the first, and are still the most widely used. "Stents" (small metal cylinders placed with a balloon catheter) remaining in the artery are becoming much more popular. Rotoblators are used to pulverize the plaque into very small fragments which are washed away by the blood. "Athrectomies" use catheters which remove plaque and/or clot procedures. "Lasers" also are used in selected situations, although not very commonly.

    CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE I've been thinking about my experience with Coronary Artery Disease, hereinafter called CAD. Would I want you to think I'm an expert on the subject? That I'm practically a medical professional? Nah. Cause I'm not. But, I have my own personal experience, 15 years of it, with the disease, and I'm gonna tell you about it. So, let's begin with: THE ANGIOPLASTIES If you're interested in how I came to be a runner, you can go read Fumi's and my running page, found elsewhere on this site, see links. In any case, I came home from a run one morning in the summer of 1985, about 5 years after I became a runner. I showered, dressed in my go to work clothes, and sat down to look at the paper. I began to experience a strange, uncomfortable feeling in my chest. Not really pain, just discomfort. But, enough discomfort to be quite worrisome. Dad dead at 62 from a heart attack. Mom dead at 63 from congestive heart failure. Me a two pack a day smoker for 30 years before quitting. Hmmm. I had Fumi take me to the emergency room. They settled my butt on a table, hooked up an EKG, and stuck in a heplock. A doctor listened to my heart. Looked wise. And concerned. I asked him what he thought was going on. He said ischemia. Meaning a shortage of blood to some part of the heart muscle. Up to the CCU. More doctors. My primary care guy. And a cardiologist. "You ain't gonna die", they said, "But, let's do an angiogram." Hey, I got good insurance; let's everybody make some money and I'll find out what's going on.

    What is coronary artery disease (CAD)?
    Coronary artery disease is a type of heart disease. The coronary arteries are blood vessels that carry blood and oxygen to the heart muscle. When these arteries become clogged with fatty deposits called plaque , it is called coronary artery disease (CAD). CAD is sometimes called coronary heart disease (CHD). Clogged arteries can keep the heart from getting enough blood and oxygen and can cause chest pain ( angina ). If a blood clot forms, it can suddenly cut off blood flow in the artery and cause a heart attack. Plaque forms in the arteries over many years in a process called atherosclerosis . One cause of plaque in the arteries is too much cholesterol in the blood. As plaque builds up, the artery opening gradually narrows and becomes clogged. The artery can also become less elastic (called "hardening of the arteries").

    Arteriosclerosis (ar-te"re-o-skle-RO'sis) is a general term for the thickening and hardening of the arteries. A type of arteriosclerosis is atherosclerosis (ath"er-o- skle-RO'sis). The word atherosclerosis comes from two Greek words: athero (meaning gruel or paste) and sclerosis (hardness). As well as being stiff, the walls of the arteries have a build-up of plaque a combination of cholesterol (ko- LES'ter-ol), cellular waste products, calcium and fibrin (a clotting material in the blood). New plaque tends to be soft, but is prone to rupturing. Plaque rupture can trigger the formation of a blood clot. Old plaque tends to have a lot of calcium and to be hard, which makes it somewhat less likely to rupture.
    Atherosclerosis affects large and medium-sized arteries. The type of artery involved and the location of the plaque varies with each person. Researchers are still trying to determine why plaque is "patchy" (i.e., why it doesn't consistently throughout the artery, but is found only in certain locations). Atherosclerosis is a slow, progressive disease that may start as early as childhood. People's susceptibility to atherosclerosis varies with their genetic make-up and their lifestyles. The circulatory system is very flexible and adaptive. Atherosclerotic plaque does not seriously impede the flow of blood until the lumen (the diameter of the blood vessel through which blood can flow) is significantly reduced.

    Coronary Artery Disease Center
    Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a chronic disease in which there is a "hardening" ( atherosclerosis ) of the arteries on the surface of the heart. This heart condition is also referred to as coronary artery disease (CAD). Atherosclerosis is caused by the build-up of cholesterol rich plaque within blood vessels. Calcification is the process that makes plaque harder and more brittle, contributing to atherosclerosis. Coronary artery disease can lead to a plaque rupture or embolism, causing a heart attack A number of factors have been shown to increase an individual's risk of developing coronary artery disease, including:
    • Family history of cardiovascular disease
    • High levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol and triglycerides
    • Low levels of HDL (good) cholesterol
    • Uncontrolled high blood pressure
    • Smoking
    • Lack of regular exercise
    • High-fat diet
    • Overweight or obesity
    • Uncontrolled diabetes
    • Chronic stress or depression (according to some studies)
    About 25 to 30 percent of patients with CAD have no chest pain angina ) or other common symptoms or warning signs at all before a total blockage occurs, which can lead to heart attacks and even cardiac arrest (in which the heart stops beating). Other "silent" manifestations of CAD include potentially dangerous irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmias) and a symptom-free but very damaging "silent heart attack."
