Angina pectoris occurs when the heart muscle doesn't receive enough blood and oxygen for a given level of work.
Atherosclerosis is a type of arteriosclerosis caused by a build-up of plaque in the inner lining of an artery.
A person with coronary heart disease has an accumulation of fatty deposits in the coronary arteries. These deposits narrow the arteries and can decrease or block the flow of blood to the heart.
Some symptoms may indicate the possibility of a serious condition and should be evaluated immediately by a health care provider.
