The field of cardiology has experienced two major revolutions in the approach to how heart attack and heart attack prevention is viewed.
The first revolution created a "paradigm shift" in the basic scientific understanding of atherosclerotic plaque formation, also called fat build-up in the arteries, where these build-up are no longer viewed as build-up.
This discovery uncovered the plaque as sites of injury and wounds in the heart. Some of these wounds heal some faster than others.
