difference between angina and coronary artery disease?
Asked by anmol11_batra | 16th Aug, 2009, 06:48: PM
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a condition in which fatty plaque deposits build up in the hearts arteries. These plaque deposits cause arteries to become narrow and blocked, which restricts blood and oxygen flow to the heart muscle.
Angina, also called angina pectoris, is temporary chest pain or a sensation of pressure that occurs while the heart muscle is not receiving enough oxygen. Angina is the primary symptom of coronary artery disease.
