DISEASES OF THE HEART: Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), HEART Cardiovascular



 In the United States and many other industrialized countries, heart disease is the leading cause of death. According to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 710,000 people in the United States die of heart disease each year.

 By far the most common type of heart disease in the United States is coronary heart disease,in which the arteries that nourish the heart become narrowed and unable to supply enough blood and oxygen to the heart muscle.

 However, many other problems can also affect the heart, including congenital defects (physical abnormalities that are present at birth), malfunction of the heart valves, and abnormal heart rhythms. Any type of heart disease may eventually result in heart failure, in which a weakened heart is unable to pump sufficient blood to the body.
