More About Coronary Artery Disease
Coronary artery disease is the most common heart disease in the United States. It’s caused by damage to the heart’s major blood vessels, usually due to the buildup of plaque from cholesterol or fat. Some types of chest pain can be a symptom of coronary artery disease. If coronary artery disease isn’t treated, blocked arteries could lead to a heart attack, heart failure or other serious complications. The expert cardiac teams at Providence use the most effective therapies to treat patients with every type of coronary artery disease.
Your heart care team uses many different methods to find out which therapies work best for you. They look at your symptoms, other medical conditions and overall health. They also use the most advanced diagnostics to evaluate your condition. Depending on your case, this may include one or more of the following:
- Blood test

- Electrocardiogram (ECG/EKG)
