Coronary Artery Disease Risk Assessment

Coronary artery disease (CAD) occurs when the coronary arteries, or the arteries that bring blood to the heart muscle, become hardened and narrowed. The arteries harden and narrow because of a buildup of plaque on their inner walls. This is called atherosclerosis. Significant narrowing of the coronary arteries can reduce blood flow to the heart. This limits the amount of oxygen the heart receives and can lead to angina, heart failure, irregular heart rhythm, and heart attack.

CAD is the most common type of heart disease. It is the leading cause of death in the U.S. in both men and women. Other names for CAD are coronary heart disease (CHD), heart disease, and ischemic heart disease.

First, select your gender, then answer the resulting questions to help determine your risk for CAD.
