American Heart Association reports Heart Disease without coronary plaque buildup linked to Heart Attack Risk

 

American Heart AssociationBaltimore, MD – Non-obstructive coronary artery disease was associated with a 28 to 44 percent increased risk of a major adverse cardiac event such as a heart attack or death, in a new study presented at the American Heart Association’s Quality of Care and Outcomes Research 2014 Scientific Sessions.
