Coronary Artery Disease

Coronary artery disease refers to the damage of the arteries supplying the myocardium. Inflammation together with plaque formation in the lumen of the arteries are the two entities that are most commonly responsible for the development of the disease. If left untreated it can progress to angina, myocardial infarction or dyspnea. Lifestyle interventions and exercise are the cornerstone of preventing coronary artery disease.
