severe anemia. Clinical Manifestations: A. Isolated hypoxemia (i. in turn leading to a heart attack (Heart attacks caused by just artery narrowing are rare).e. the most important form of IHD. Angina pectoris. Chronic IHD with heart failure. Most ischaemic heart disease is caused by atherosclerosis. .ISCHAEMIC HEART DISEASE Rationale Ischemic Heart Disease (IHD) belongs to a group of cardiovascular diseases known as Coronary Artery Disease. It is usually felt as angina. or advanced lung disease is less deleterious than ischemia because perfusion (including metabolic substrate delivery and waste removal) is maintained. Of the three variants—stable angina. diminished transport of oxygen by the blood) induced by cyanotic congenital heart disease. but also reduced availability of nutrient substrates and inadequate removal of metabolites. C. and unstable angina—the latter is the most threatening as a frequent harbinger of MI. in which the duration and severity of ischemia is sufficient to cause death of heart muscle. usually present even when the artery lumens appear normal by angiography. especially if a large area is affected. Prinzmetal angina. Background Ischemic Heart Disease is characterized by reduced blood supply to the heart. CAD remains to be a major health problem in western countries and the rest of the world despite the advances in medicine. Ischemic heart disease (IHD) is the generic designation for a group of closely related syndromes resulting from myocardial ischemia—an imbalance between the supply (perfusion) and demand of the heart for oxygenated blood. so a blockage in the coronary arteries reduces the supply of blood to heart muscle. Myocardial infarction (MI).The coronary arteries supply blood to the heart muscle and no alternative blood supply exists.. Initially there is sudden severe narrowing or closure of either the large coronary arteries and/or of coronary artery end branches by debris showering downstream in the flowing blood. B. The reasons for this are multifactorial and are due to the advancing age of the population. It comprises not only insufficiency of oxygen. A heart attack causes damage to heart muscle by cutting off its blood supply. in which the ischemia is less severe and does not cause death of cardiac muscle. Ischaemia means a "reduced blood supply". The narrowing or closure is predominantly caused by the covering of atheromatous plaques within the wall of the artery rupturing.
