HEART ATTACK



The blood supply to the heart itself flows through the coronary arteries. These arteries are easily affected by atherosclerosis; as they narrow, blood flow to the heart muscles decreases.
Chest pains and shortness of breath during mild exertion are symptoms of the early stages of atherosclerosis in the coronary artery. When the coronary artery is totally blocked due to the presence of a thrombus, it leads to a situation called a heart attack.
