What Is Native Coronary Artery Of Native Heart Without Angina Pectoris
Arteries are defined as blood vessels which carry blood away from the heart (to either the body or lungs). Arteries: higher pressure, thicker walls, stretch (pulse) with each heart contraction & deliver blood to the arterioles which control the flow to individual capillaries. Veins are blood vessels which carry blood from capillaries back to the heart (body to right heart; ...Read more
CAD: is the same as arteriosclerosis, though arteriosclerosis can refer to sclerosing (scarring) of any artery, not just those in the heart. A myocardial infarction (commonly called a heart attack) occurs when there is complete cutoff of blood supply to some part of the heart muscles, usually due to underlying coronary artery disease. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If adequate collateral pathways exist may just vagus transient angina or pain. Angina is pain without damage. If not adequate flow, or collateral, acute myocardial infarction- heart attack occurs and that is "damage". Heart failure may follow. ...Read more
