In brief: CAD

Coronary artery disease is defined as obstructive lesions in the coronary arteries that supply the heart muscle .
These start as areas of inflammation that progress into obstructions and affect the different layers of the blood vessel wall (from inside out).

In brief: Ds of Heart Arteries

The key issue is atherosclerosis, an accumulation of white blood cells in the walls of arteries, typically starts in childhood & is primarily driven by lipoproteins (proteins which transport fat in the water outside cells) is dominant human behavior yet is typically ignored for decades because it remains asymptomatic until plaque ruptures releases debris, triggers clots & suddenly block blood flow.
