What heart disease can someone get?

Heart disease. The most common heart diseases are atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries and hypertrophy, or thickening of the heart muscle leading to stiffness and abnormal muscle function. At their worst these both can lead to congestive heart failure, or the inability of the heart to pumps the blood adequately, with a resulting pressure buildup causing fluid to leak back into the lungs.
