In brief: Ischemic heart

Ischemic heart disease implies a progression of atherosclerotic changes in the coronary artery blood supply that results in a deprived state of oxygen delivery to the heart muscle.
It is caused by a progression of inflammatory deposits brought on by proinflammatory risk factors (family history, hypertension, smoking, diabetes, hyperlipidemia). Reducing risk factors slows progression.
