Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the world. Coronary artery disease is the most common cause of heart disease. This condition results when cholesterol and other substances (plaque) build up inside the walls of the blood vessels that supply your heart muscle (arteries). This buildup in arteries is called atherosclerosis. You can take actions to lower your risk of heart disease.
