DEPARTMENTS DIRECTORY ADVANCED SEARCH SCHOOL HOME ... How to Make an Appointment Coronary artery disease Some 12 million Americans have coronary artery disease, making it a leading cause of death and disability in this country. The buildup of atherosclerotic plaque in the vessels supplying the heart can deprive this organ of the vital oxygenated blood it needs, resulting in a heart attack (myocardial infarction) or causing pain (angina). At NYU Medical Center, we offer a range of services to meet the needs of patients with coronary artery disease as well as those at risk for heart disease. Cardiologists in our Department of Medicine are available to tailor treatment regimens for patients with high blood pressure and/or cholesterol. Using the latest antihypertensive drugs and cholesterol-lowering agents, doctors work to reduce a patient's risk of developing heart disease or, if they have already suffered a heart attack, of experiencing a recurrence. When heart disease is suspected, a variety of tests are available at NYU Medical Center to make an accurate diagnosis. These include electrocardiography, echocardiography, exercise stress testing, angiography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and nuclear imaging procedures. Many of these examinations are provided in our Noninvasive Cardiology Laboratory.

Coronary Artery Disease
The coronary arteries are vital to the heart because they are responsible for supplying blood to the heart muscle.
Coronary artery disease occurs when fat and calcium build up in the coronary arteries and forms a tough plaque. This plaque builds up in the inner lining of the artery and then causes the artery to narrow. This process, referred to as atherosclerosis, is the main cause of coronary artery disease (CAD).
Causes With atherosclerosis, the narrowed coronary arteries constrict the amount of oxygenated blood supplied to the heart muscle. Called ischemia, this reduction of oxygenated blood can result in damage to the heart muscle or even cause heart muscle death. When this occurs, the patient is said to have a heart attack (myocardial infarction). Coronary artery disease, or atherosclerosis, is more likely in individuals who smoke, have high blood pressure or cholesterol, have diabetes, are older, are male, are overweight, undertake limited exercise, and have a family history of heart disease.

Risk Factors
The values provided are designed to educate you and help you determine your risk of developing coronary artery disease (CAD). CAD, also known as coronary heart disease (CHD), is the major cause of cardiovascular disease deaths. Since the beginning of this century, cardiovascular disease has been the leading cause of death in the United States for all age groups. Coronary artery disease is almost always the result of atherosclerosis, which is a narrowing of the coronary arteries. Coronary arteries supply the heart muscle with blood. This narrowing can reduce the blood flow to the heart muscle and can cause the amount of oxygen to reach the muscles of the heart to be insufficient. A myocardial infarction or heart attack can occur when a certain area of the heart is completely deprived of oxygen, due to a lack of blood flow. This is because a coronary artery is completely blocked from receiving any blood. Furthermore, atherosclerosis of the cerebral vessels leads to cerebral infarction, which is the most common cause of strokes leading to the death of brain tissue. For these reasons it is important to know the risk factors and to take steps to reduce your chances of developing CAD. This section will discuss the main risk factors for developing CAD.

What is Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)?
Coronary artery disease refers to the narrowing or blockage of the coronary arteries of the heart . When narrowing or blockage occurs in one of the coronary arteries, the portion of the heart that the coronary artery leads to fails to receive enough oxygenated blood. The lack of oxygenated blood may cause the individual to experience chest pain ( angina pectoris ). This pain may occur when the heart must work harder, causing the heart's oxygen demand to be greater than the oxygen supply. Coronary artery disease is the most common form of heart disease and is the number one cause of death in the US. Fortunately, it is highly treatable and preventable.
Symptoms of Coronary Artery Disease
Many people (as many as 30% of all patients) with coronary artery disease experience no symptoms. For others, symptoms are usually varying degrees of chest pain and shortness of breath. Often, the first symptom of CAD is a

Coronary heart disease
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Coronary heart disease (CHD), also called coronary artery disease and atherosclerotic heart disease, may be caused by inflammation of the lining of the arteries which allows atheromatous plaques (caused by the buildup of cholesterol in the vessel wall) to form, limiting blood flow to the heart muscle. Table of contents 1 Pathophysiology 2 Angina 3 Prevention 4 Recent research ... edit
Limitation of blood flow to the heart causes ischemia (cell starvation secondary to a lack of oxygen) of the myocardial cells. When myocardial cells die from lack of oxygen , this is called a myocardial infarction (commonly called a heart attack ), and leads to heart muscle damage and later scarring. Myocardial infarction can result from the sudden occlusion of a coronary artery when a plaque ruptures and a blood clot fills the lumen of the artery. The events leading up to plaque rupture are not fully understood. Myocardial infarction is also caused, less commonly, by spasm of the artery wall occluding the lumen, a condition also associated with atheromatous plaque and CHD. CHD is associated with smoking, obesity and hypertension. A family history of CHD is one of the strongest predictors of CHD. Screening for CHD includes evaluating homocysteine levels, high-density and low-density lipoprotein (cholesterol) levels and triglyceride levels.

[There is] an unreasonable gap between the medical enthusiasm devoted to acute interventions and the meager efforts currently devoted to secondary prevention. Rene C. Favaloro, MD
Pioneer of Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting So, it seems we have an enormous paradox. The disease that is the leading killer of men and women in Western civilization is largely untreated. The juggernaut of therapy that has evolved for treating its symp toms consumes the lion's share of the available health- care dollars.5 The benefits achieved through great financial cost, morbidity, and mortality are at best temporary and erode over time, with most patients eventually succumbing to their disease. In cancer management, we refer to that approach as palliation. I refer to the present treatment of coronary artery dis ease as "palliative cardiology." Why does the juggernaut persist? Because physi cians generally lack understanding of the techniques of lipid reduction through diet and medication. The belief also still prevails that the "quick fix" surgical repair of the major stenotic lesions will make things right. Finally, performing interventions has the poten tial for enormous financial reward. But the question remains: Aren't there other options?
