The heart is a complex organ and as a result there are a number of areas where your heart that can be damaged.
Coronary heart disease is caused by the build up of fatty deposits in the arteries of the heart. This means the heart has to work harder to pump blood through your body.
Angina is often caused by coronary heart disease, where the arteries are narrower than they should be. It may result in pain in the chest, but it can also radiate down the arm or across the shoulder blades, neck and even the stomach.
Heart valve problems occur when one of the heart’s four valves does not open and close as it should causing blood flow to be disturbed. Heart valves regulate the blood flow through the heart. A healthy heart valve opens and closes quickly to ensure blood flows in the right direction.
Cardiac arrhythmia describes an abnormal rate or rhythm of the heart.
