To learn about artery blockage helps one be wary of a heart attack in the future. Dr Hassan Tehrani tells us what artery blockage is all about. Typically, a heart disease is directly related to the arteries that are on the surface of the heart. It is the blockage of these arteries that triggers a heart attack. When the arteries get blocked, the muscles around the arteries tend to die, which gives rise to heart failure and death associated with heart attack. These arteries, however, can be easily opened with the help of medications or stents and sometimes, a bypass surgery. A coronary artery bypass operation may also be an alternative to restore blood flow through the blocked artery.
