Acute Coronary Syndrome

The term "acute coronary syndrome" (ACS) refers to three forms of coronary artery disease that impact millions of individuals each year. These potentially fatal disorders develop when blood flow to your heart abruptly slows or stops due to a blockage. Your arteries gradually become harder and narrower as a result of plaque, a buildup of fat and cholesterol (atherosclerosis). This plaque can rupture or split open suddenly, resulting in acute coronary syndrome. It is a medical emergency that has to be attended to right away.
