Q: What is the difference between coronary artery disease and coronary vascular disease? It is good for heart patients to take 2 teaspoons of olive oil along with salads?
A:Coronary artery disease and coronary vascular disease both mean for all practical purposes blockages due to fat deposition in the arteries supplying the heart. The presentation of this when blockages are significant are angina (stable or unstable), Myocardial infarction (heart attack), heart failure, sudden death etc. Olive oil is a heart healthy oil and taking it with salad etc. is a good habit.
