In brief: One leads to another

A heartattack or chronic poor blood flow to heart muscle can make it weak so that it doesn't pump well anymore leading to heart failure or chf.

In brief: CHF

Congestive heart failure occurs whenever the heart can't manage its job well enough for any reason.
Coronary artery disease is just one of many, many reasons that may occur. The commonest reason in the usa is probably hypertension. Cardiomyopathies, valvular disorders, arrhythmias, and senescence are other broad categories.
