  3. 3. Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) <ul><li>Accumulation of fatty deposits in the inner layer of coronary arteries. </li></ul><ul><li>due to hypercholesterolemia </li></ul><ul><li>Incomplete occlusion of the coronary arteries lead to Angina (ischemia) </li></ul><ul><li>Complete occlusion of the coronary arteries lead to Myocardial Infarction </li></ul><ul><li>Manifestations depend on the severity of coronary arterial occlusion </li></ul>
