In brief: Not enough blood

Ischemic heart disease is when there is a partial blockage in the coronary arteries (which supply the heart muscle with blood).
This blockage reduces the flow of blood to the point where the coronary arteries cannot meet the demand of the heart muscle with enough oxygen-rich blood.
