Thousands of people suffer heart attacks in the United States every year. This video reveals what happens when a heart attack occurs.
A system of arteries and veins enables oxygen and blood circulation throughout the body. When fatty deposits called plaque build inside the arteries, they obstruct blood flow. Should plaque become extensive enough to rupture, it can cause a complete blockage of blood. A heart attack may occur, producing scar tissue on the heart. This scar tissue is permanent and can impede optimal heart function.
