Coronary artery disease (CAD), also called coronary heart disease, is a condition in which fatty material and plaque build up in the walls of arteries surrounding the heart muscle. When this occurs, the artery narrows or becomes blocked, preventing adequate blood flow from reaching the heart. Without proper blood flow, the heart cannot beat properly.
Common symptoms of coronary artery disease include chest pains, tightness or pressure in the chest, shortness of breath, dizziness, nausea, palpitations, sweating and extreme weakness or fatigue.
