Managing Coronary Artery Disease

Last updated 4 years ago

Coronary artery disease is the most common type of heart disease, and the leading cause of death in the U.S. Coronary artery disease occurs when the heart arteries become hardened with plaque, reducing the amount of blood that reaches the heart.

This video offers a closer look at coronary artery disease. If left untreated, coronary artery disease can lead to angina, heart failure, or arrhythmia. To reduce your risk of coronary artery disease, begin a regular exercise regimen, eat a healthy diet, and refrain from smoking. If you currently smoke, ask your doctor about various cessation strategies.
