Coronary Artery Disease
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the most common type of heart disease. It is the leading cause of death in the United States in both men and women. CAD happens when the arteries that supply blood to the heart muscle become hardened and narrowed.
The usual cause is the buildup of plaque. This causes coronary arteries to narrow, limiting blood flow to the heart. Coronary artery disease can range from no symptoms, to chest pain, to a heart attack.
It is important to reduce or control your risk factors and seek treatment to lower the chance of a heart attack or stroke if you are diagnosed with CAD. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Lookman Lawal to address your CAD.
