    Call for Papers


    Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a narrowing of the blood vessels (coronary arteries) that supply oxygen and blood to the heart. It is a major cause of illness and death.

    Coronary heart disease is generally caused by atherosclerosis - when plaque (cholesterol substances) accumulates on the artery walls, causing them to narrow, resulting in less blood flow to the heart. Sometimes a clot may form which can obstruct the flow of blood to heart muscle. Coronary heart disease commonly causes angina pectoris (chest pain), shortness of breath, heart attack (myocardial infarction) and other symptoms.
