Your coronary arteries are major blood vessels that carry blood, oxygen and other important nutrients to the heart. CAD happens when those arteries are damaged or diseased. Usually, damage is caused by a substance called plaque that builds up in the arteries and makes them stiff and narrow, so the blood with oxygen can’t get to the heart easily. Sometimes a piece of plaque will break off leading to a heart attack or stroke.

If you have been recently diagnosed with coronary artery disease (CAD), it’s important to learn about CAD, treatment options, and ways to help you live with and manage CAD so you can reduce your risks and improve your life.
