Coronary artery calcification makes your arteries stiff and less able to expand and contract. This puts you at a higher risk for cardiovascular issues.

Coronary artery calcification causes less blood to get to your heart muscle.

Calcification makes it difficult for your healthcare provider to do percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or angioplasty. It makes it harder to expand a stent to keep your artery open.
