Coronary Artery Disease Your coronary arteries have the important job of carrying oxygen-rich blood to your heart. Over time, a waxy substance called plaque can make a home inside of them, blocking the flow of blood. This buildup can lead to a heart attack. In fact, coronary artery disease (CAD) is the most common cause of heart attacks. Cardiologists at Cardiac Partners at Cooper and Inspira can work with you to identify and modify risk factors for CAD like smoking, high cholesterol levels, poor eating habits and high blood pressure. Our cardiac care team is also prepared to perform emergency catheterization with angioplasty and stenting for people having a heart attack. When emergency strikes, know you have South Jersey’s most respected health systems ready to help.
