The cause of Coronary Heart Disease depends on the type. Coronary artery disease is often caused by cholesterol, a waxy substance that builds up inside the lining of the coronary arteries forming plaque. This buildup can partially or totally block blood flow in the large arteries of the heart. Coronary microvascular disease happens when the heart’s tiny blood vessels do not work normally.
