Disease of the heart and blood vessels, also known as heart and blood vessel disease, has many problems that are mostly directly related to dangerous blood vessel disease. Dangerous blood vessel disease is a condition that develops when plaque builds up in the walls of the (blood vessels from the heart/busy roads). The plaque narrows the (blood vessels from the heart/busy roads) making it hard for blood to flow through. If a blood clot forms, it can cause a heart attack or stroke due to the blood not flowing.
The most common stroke is a ischemic stroke. This type of stroke happens when a blood clot is blocking the vessel’s blood supply. When the blood supply to any part of the brain is blocked off, the brains cells will die. The result would be the inability to carry out some of the previous functions as before like walking and

When the heart valves don't close properly and allow blood to leak through, it's called heart valve regurgitation. When the heart valve does not close smoothly or evenly, this is called Mitral valve prolapse. Also called Barlow’s syndrome or floppy valve syndrome. Other types of heart disease are heart failure, arrhythmia, bradycardia, and tachycardia.
The treatments needed for cardiovascular disease or stroke might be medications, heart valve surgery, pacemaker, clot-busters, coronary angioplasty, coronary artery bypass graft surgery, and carotid endarterectomy.
According to The Charlotte Sun Herald/ University of Florida, in 2016 Cardiovascular disease claimed one of every three deaths in America, for a total of more than 801,000 deaths. About 795,000 people had a stroke, and nearly 129,000 people have died. There were who suffered 116,000 plus died out of 750,000. Nearly 160 million of Americans were overweight or obese. African Americans have twice the risk of having a stroke than a Caucasian
