__________ is the major contributor to CAD, the blood vessel disease of the epicardial arteries supplying oxygen and nutrients to the myocardium.
__________ begins as fatty streaks of the arterial wall in adolescents, progressing to hard fatty plaques that narrow the artery lumen in adulthood and can rupture, creating thrombotic occlusions that cause ischemia.
