CAD is the most common type of heart disease. In CAD, the arteries carrying blood to the heart muscle (the coronary arteries) become lined with plaque, which contains materials such as cholesterol and fat.
The most common symptom of coronary artery disease is
• Angina or chest pain.
I. Symptoms, medical history, and risk factors.
II. Performing a physical exam.
III. Performing diagnostic tests,
IV. Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG)
V. Exercise stress tests,
VI. Electron beam (ultrafast) CT scans,
VII. Cardiac catheterization
Treatment focuses on lowering your risk for heart attack and stroke and managing your symptoms.
• Lifestyle changes
• Procedures are used: If your angina symptoms get worse even though you are taking medicines, you may think about having a procedure to improve blood flow to your heart. These include
- Angioplasty with or without stenting
- Bypass surgery.
