What is heart disease?

Heart disease – also called coronary heart disease – is a simple term used to describe several problems related to cholesterol buildup in the walls of the arteries, or atherosclerosis. As this builds up, the arteries narrow, making it more difficult for blood to flow and creating a risk for heart attack or stroke.

Other types of heart disease include heart failure, an irregular heartbeat – or arrhythmia – and heart valve problems.
