In brief: Easy one

Coronary artery disease is the build up of atherosclerotic fat plaques in the arteries of the heart.
These can partially block blood flow to the heart muscle causing angina or block completely and cause a heart attack. Hypertension is high blood pressure which can be caused by a variety of medical conditions.
