      Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a group of different types of heart disease. Common heart disease symptoms include chest pain, shortness of breath, palpitations, light-headedness, and dizziness. Heart disease has many causes, including genetics, atherosclerosis, and smoking. Treatment for heart disease depends on the cause. Coronary screening with cardiac CT is most useful in men over 45 and women over 55 who have an intermediate ten year heart risk (%). If you feel you have significant risk factors, but no symptoms of heart problems a scan will be able to refine your risk of developing heart disease or .

    Coronary Heart Disease. C. oronary heart disease (CHD), also called. coronary artery disease, is the leading cause of death in the United States for both men and women. CHD occurs when plaque builds up inside the coronary arteries. These arteries supply your heart muscle with oxygen-rich blood. Plaque is made up of fat, cholesterol, calcium, and. Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a class of diseases that involve the heart or blood vessels. CVD includes coronary artery diseases (CAD) such as angina and myocardial infarction (commonly known as a heart attack).

Two alternative approaches (screening, risk factor identification) to the prevention of GBS disease have been developed, with a 70% reduction in the incidence of early-onset disease.

This may be carried out as part of an NHS Health Check. The GP will. Conclusion: Several emerging risk factors provided independent information about coronary heart disease risk, but for most there were limitations in the evidence base. Across all of the criteria listed in the table, C-reactive and electron beam computed tomography scan had the strongest evidence for an independent effect in intermediate-risk individuals, and both reclassify some individuals as.
