Arteriosclerosis & Atherosclerosis
Misdiagnosis of Coronary Artery Disease
Atherosclerosis or arteriosclerosis is a common disorder of the arteries that occurs when cholesterol, fat and other substances harden into plaque in the arteries. As the arteries narrow, it decreases blood flow and can cause chest pain, shortness of breath and heart attack. Pieces of plaque breaking off and traveling through the arteries is a common cause of stroke and heart attack. Blood clots can also form around plaque, blocking blood flow. Such clots can lead to stroke, heart attack or pulmonary embolism.
