coronary heart disease

Coronary heart disease is the abbreviation of coronary artery heart disease (CHD). It is one of the most common heart diseases. It refers to myocardial dysfunction and / or organic lesions caused by coronary artery stenosis and insufficient blood supply, so it is also called ischemic cardiomyopathy. Coronary heart disease is a kind of heart disease caused by myocardial ischemia and hypoxia (angina pectoris) or myocardial necrosis (myocardial infarction) caused by organic (atherosclerosis or dynamic vasospasm) stenosis or obstruction of coronary artery, also known as ischemic heart disease. The occurrence of coronary heart disease is closely related to the degree and number of coronary atherosclerotic stenosis. At the same time, hypertension, diabetes and other diseases, as well as obesity and unhealthy lifestyle are the main factors inducing the disease. Coronary heart disease is one of the diseases with the highest mortality in the world. According to the report of the World Health Organization in 2011, the death toll of coronary heart disease in China has ranked second in the world.
