Blocked Coronary Vessel

A blocked coronary vessel occurs when fat has accumulated within the coronary vessel to the point where blood can no longer pass through. Atherosclerosis, a buildup of fat and cholesterol in the blood vessels, can lead to a blocked coronary vessel and cause coronary artery disease - a clinical term for the progression of atherosclerosis which leads to a significant lack of blood supply to the heart.
