Coronary Insufficiency

 

(coronary heart disease, ischemic heart disease), a condition in which the amount of blood flowing through the coronary arteries fails to meet the heart’s oxygen demand. Coronary insufficiency is most often a result of atherosclerosis, spasm, and thrombosis of the coronary arteries, and it is manifested in the form of stenocardia, myocar-dial infarction, cardiosclerosis, and cardiac arryhthmias.
