In brief: CAD
They're essentially the same thing ischemic heart disease means that there is decreased blood flow to an area of the heart most likely due to less blood flow through the coronary arteries-- coronary artery disease.
There are other causes of heart disease such as hypertension or infiltrative diseases.
