Coronary artery disease

Coronary artery disease is caused by plaque buildup in the wall of the arteries that supply blood to the heart (called coronary arteries). Plaque is made up of cholesterol deposits. Plaque buildup causes the inside of the arteries to narrow over time. This process is called atherosclerosis.

Three-vessel coronary lesions are more prevalent in subjects with greater volume of epicardial fat and in the male gender 1)

The detection rate of fear of recurrence in elderly patients with Coronary artery disease was relatively high but could be reduced by active interventions and enhancing social support 2).
