In brief: Symptoms/lifespan

Coronary artery disease affects the quality of life and the length of life.
Quality of life is affected by reduced functional capacity (ability to do things), chest pain, shortness of breath, loss of employment, and hospitalization. Length of life is reduced as a result of sudden death and myocardial infarction.
