The LAD is the main artery which feeds the heart. If it has disease it means it is getting clogged up with fat and cholesterol. Sometimes people need an operation or a stent to open up the blockage. It is best to watch your cholesterol and not to smoke... that way you won't have LAD disease in the first place! Hope that helps.
