In brief: Different problems

Coronary artery disease is a narrowing of the small blood vessels that supply blood and oxygen to the heart.
(http://1.Usa.Gov/lrisvf) congestive heart failure is a condition in which the heart can no longer pump enough blood to the rest of the body. (http://1.Usa.Gov/lrirha).
