In the words of one noted physician, blockages in the main blood vessels of the heart create a problem that is "relatively simple and very complex." This program reflects that dual perspective, aiming to simplify the discussion while embracing the complexity of coronary artery disease. Viewers learn about the ailment's causes, development, dangers, and treatment through helpful case studies and expert interviews. Dynamic 3D graphics show how plaque builds up in arteries, how this eventually obstructs blood flow, and how angioplasty, or the insertion of a tiny balloon and stents, can relieve the constriction. Patients who are coping with coronary artery disease share the challenges they face in their everyday lives, while astute commentary is provided by Dr. George A. Beller of the University of Virginia, Dr. Emmanouil Brilakis of the University of Texas, and other respected medical professionals. Contains surgical scenes of a graphic nature.
