Varies considerably: Devil in the details. Depends on whether the degree of obstruction is low limiting enough to cause ischemia (mismatch between oxygen demand exceeding ability of the coronary vessels to supply) and which and how many coronary vessels are affected. Signs and symptoms range from none, to death.
