Overview of Coronary Artery Disease



the heart is fed by its own circulation known as the major coronary arteries these arteries include the left anterior descending artery the left circumflex coronary artery and the right coronary artery the blood stream contains red blood cells which deliver oxygen to the heart muscle known as the myocardium it also contains fats or lipids known as low-density lipoproteins or LDL cholesterol atherosclerosis begins when LDL cholesterol accumulates in the arterial wall forming a plaque over time the plaque becomes larger some plaques never obstruct the coronary blood flow the patient with asymptomatic coronary disease has no chest pain and no myocardial ski Miam a plaque can enlarge to the point that the blood flow is compromised the patient may have chest pain but only with exertion this syndrome is known as stable angina and is not a clinical emergency such a patient is still at risk for an acute life-threatening event because a plaque can suddenly rupture causing clotting of the artery known as coronary thrombosis when a thrombotic occlusion is subtotal an acute coronary syndrome develops and there are two types the first type is known as a non-st segment elevation myocardial infarction and the second type is known as unstable angina with these syndromes the patient experiences chest pain at rest and the electrocardiogram shows ST segment depression in contrast when the thrombus completely occludes the vessel the my car diem is injured and the syndrome of ST segment elevation myocardial infarction develops in summary patients with coronary artery disease may be asymptomatic they can have stable angina or they can suffer an acute a thorough thrombotic event plaque rupture with coronary thrombosis is the most common cause of acute life-threatening coronary artery disease emergency therapy by thrombolysis angioplasty or thrombectomy restores blood flow by targeting promised either dissolving it displacing it or removing it as quickly as possible rapid restoration of blood flow release symptoms and minimizes myocardial damage you

    22 – Fatty Fish. You need healthy fats in your diet to eliminate the liver producing higher amounts of bad cholesterol. HDL is known as “good cholesterol” because it transports cholesterol to your liver to be expelled from your body. HDL helps rid your body of excess cholesterol so it’s less likely to end up in your arteries. LDL is called “bad cholesterol” because it takes cholesterol to your arteries, where it may collect in artery walls. Too much cholesterol in your arteries may lead to a buildup of plaque known as atherosclerosis. This can increase the risk of blood clots in your arteries. If a blood clot breaks away and blocks an artery in your heart or brain, you may have a stroke or heart attack.
    23 – Beets or Beetroot Juice.
    24 – Parmesan Cheese. Dairy can get a bad rap, but a daily serving of cheese has been linked to a lower risk of cardiovascular disease. Eating a moderate amount may even increase the likelihood of living longer. Parmesan cheese is also high in protein.

  3. Is this disease mostly cause by poor eating habits? I'm getting the impression that fatty foods and obesity establish the beginning stages of coronary artery disease.

  4. Looks like I'm screwd lol I've been getting these sharp chest pains at rest lasting for about a second more or less. Goodbye life, it was nice living you.
