When left unchecked or undetected, plaque buildup in the coronary artery can become very serious and complicated over the years. Among others, cholesterol is the primary ingredient that constitutes plaque. The buildup of plaque in the arteries is commonly known as the Coronary Artery Disease (CAD).
The disease basically increases the patient’s susceptibility to heart risks and also causes other related problems. When the accumulation of plaque is left unchecked, it can obstruct the supply of blood to the heart & affect other organs. Due to this reason, many vital organs in the body fail to get their normal supply of blood and oxygen causing further problems and complications to the patient. Therefore, it is very important to detect and treat plaque build-up before it can cause any serious damage to the health.
