    Coronary artery disease (CAD) is primarily a structural disease characterized by the build-up of atherosclerotic plaques in the coronary arteries. With progressive impingement on coronary blood flow, a given coronary stenosis will elicit functional consequences that are described by the ‘ischaemic cascade’ and emerge progressively as inducible changes of perfusion, wall motion, and electrocardiogram, and finally manifest as chest pain ( Figure 1 ). Thus, definitions for clinically significant CAD may vary considerably based on whether rather anatomical vs. functional criteria are used ( Table 1 ).
