Coronary heart disease

Jump to navigationJump to search

A condition in which the main arteries supplying the heart are blocked and no longer able to supply sufficient blood, and therefore oxygen, to the heart muscle (myocardium), which may then quickly die. The main cause of reduced blood flow is the accumulation of plaques, a disease known as atherosclerosis.
