In brief: Arterial blockage

There are many types of cardiovascular disease.
In addition to blockages in the coronary and peripheral arteries, there can be narrowing or leakage (stenosis or regurgitation) in the heart valves. There can also be heart rhythm problems, called arrhythmias; and heart conduction block; heart muscle disease, called cardiomyopathy; and dilatation of an artery called aneurysms, and others.
