Coronary arteries carry blood to and from the heart. Over time, a waxy substance called plaque can accumulate on the walls of these arteries. Plaque is made up of fat, cholesterol, calcium and other substances. Coronary artery disease occurs when the plaque has built up to the point of narrowing the arteries and restricting the flow of blood. A completely blocked artery can cause a heart attack, which may be fatal. Treatments for coronary artery disease range from medical management to surgery.
