Global heart disease. Abstract artwork of a diseased heart inside Planet Earth. The whitened blood vessels in the lower right of this heart represent the fatty deposits that build up in coronary artery disease. This condition causes narrowing of the coronary artery, which can eventually lead to blood flow being cut off from part of the heart if a clot (thrombus) is trapped in the vessel. Disorders of the heart are by far the most common cause of death in developed countries.
