Coronary artery disease (CAD) affects over 13 million Americans. It’s also called simply, heart disease. CAD occurs when the arteries in the heart become blocked by thick and hardened plaque, restricting blood and oxygen flow to the heart and other parts of the body, including the brain, kidneys, reproductive organs, and legs. This can cause chest pain, shortness of breath, a heart attack, and other symptoms, usually when the person is active. Over time, CAD can weaken the heart muscles, leading to heart failure.
