Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a disease in which a waxy substance called plaque build up in the interior portion of the coronary arteries. These arteries deliver oxygen-loaded blood to your heart muscle. When plaque builds up in the arteries, the condition is called atherosclerosis. The build-up of plaque occurs over many years.Over time, plaque can thicken or rupture. Hardened plaque narrows the coronary arteries and reduces the flow of oxygen-loaded blood to the heart.

If the plaque ruptures, a blood clot can form on its surface. A large blood clot can mainly or completely block blood circulation through a coronary artery. Over time, ruptured plaque also hardens and narrows the coronary arteries.If the flow of oxygen-rich blood to your heart muscle is reduced or blocked, heart attack or an angina can occur.

Angina is chest pain or distress. It may experience like squeezing and pressure in your chest. The pain also can take place in your shoulders, arms, neck, jaw, or back. Angina pain may even feel like indigestion.

A heart attack occurs if the flow of oxygen-rich blood to a section of heart muscle is cut off. If blood flow is not restored quickly, the section of heart muscle begins to expire. Without immediate treatment, a heart attack can lead to severe health problems or death.

Over time, Coronary Heart Disease CHD can weaken the heart muscle and lead to arrhythmias and heart attack. Heart failure is a condition in which your heart can’t supply an adequate amount of blood to meet your body’s needs. Arrhythmia is an inconvenience with the rate or rhythm of the heartbeat.
