Coronary Artery Diseases

Narrowing or blockage of the coronary arteries, usually caused by atherosclerosis leads to Coronary Artery Disease. Atherosclerosis is prominently known to be hardening or clogging of the arteries is the buildup of cholesterol and fatty deposits (called plaques) on the inner walls of the arteries. These plaques may have a chance to restrict blood flow to the heart muscle by physically clogging the artery or by causing abnormal artery tone and function.

Without proper blood supply, the heart becomes starved of oxygen and the vital nutrients it needs to work properly. This can cause chest pain called angina. Complete stoppage of the blood supply to heart muscle (or) energy demand of heart become much greater than its blood supply, there are major chances of heart attack. Major four coronary arteries are located on the surface of the heart:

·         Right Main Coronary Artery

·         Left Main Coronary Artery

·         Left Circumflex Artery

·         Left Anterior Descending Artery

Normal symptoms of Coronary Artery Disease are most likely to be chest pain, heaviness, tightness, burning, squeezing, pain in the arms or shoulders, shortness of breath, sweating and dizziness. But the symptoms in women who are affected with CAD are Nausea, vomiting, back pain, jaw pain and shortness of breath without feeling chest pain.

Different type surgeries need to be undergone depending upon the seveartiy of the heart attach namely:

  • Deep Vein Thrombosis and Pulmonary Embolism
  • Vascular Disease (Blood Vessel Disease)
  • Congenital Heart Disease
  • Heart Valve Diseases
