Coronary Artery Disease

Coronary Artery Disease occurs when the arteries that supply blood to your heart become narrowed or blocked by fatty deposits called plaque. The narrowed arteries decrease the amount of blood and oxygen reaching your heart. If your heart does not receive enough oxygen, you may have chest pain (angina) or a heart attack.
