Ischemic Heart Disease

An occluded coronary artery causes an inadequate supply of blood to the heart and produces angina pectoris or a heart attack. For both men and women, coronary heart disease or ischemic heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in the world. It is usually asymptomatic and can be prevented.
