Heart failure:
One of the most common complications of heart diseases heart failure occurs when your heart can't pump enough blood to meet your body's needs.
The risk factors that lead to cardiovascular disease also can lead to an ischemic stroke, which happens when the arteries to your brain are narrowed or blocked so that too little blood reaches your brain. A stroke is a medical emergency when brain tissue begins to die within just a few minutes of a stroke.
