Description
Acute myocardial infarction and angina pectoris are both called as ischemic coronary disease or coronary artery disease which is defined as a clinical or pathologic event caused by myocardial ischemia. Recent observations have highlighted the potential role of life associated disease in acute disease onset and prognosis of coronary artery disease. Plaque disruption and thrombosis frequently occurs at the site of a previously mild stenosis, suggesting that the transformation from a stable to unstable plaque occurs acutely. Many of the important risk factors for cardiovascular disease are modifiable by specific preventive measures. These included smoking, obesity, dyslipidemia, hypertension, diabetes and so on. To prevent acute onset of coronary artery disease, it is important to find these risk factor and treat them earlier. In addition to the medical treatment, however, improvement of inappropriate lifestyles is essential.
