Cardiovascular disease is a class of diseases that involve the heart or blood vessels, and includes coronary artery diseases such as angina, myocardial infarction (commonly known as a heart attack), stroke, cardiomyopathy, heart arrhythmia, congenital heart disease, and many others, and the underlying mechanisms vary depending on the disease in question.
