Cardiovascular disease or heart disease is a class of diseases that involve the heart or blood vessels. While the term technically refers to any disease that affects the cardiovascular system, it is often used to refer to those related to atherosclerosis and/or hypertension. Cardiovascular diseases remain the biggest cause of deaths worldwide, though over the last two decades, cardiovascular mortality rates have declined in many high-income countries.
