    1. Atherosclerosis is a disease of large and medium-sized muscular arteries Characteristics:  endothelial dysfunction  vascular inflammation  buildup of lipids‚ cholesterol‚ calcium and cellular debris within the intima of the blood vessel wall.  The build up results in atheroma (plaque formation). It is a fatty deposit in the intima of an artery‚ resulting from atherosclerosis. Atheroma/Plaque is made up of:  fatty substances  Cholesterol  Waste products from cells  Calcium

One of the prominent causes of heart disease is atherosclerosis. In general‚ atherosclerosis means the narrowing of blood vessel which ultimately hinders the blood flow through the vessel. Various substances accumulate on the inner wall of blood vessel and with time the blood vessel start to lose

    Background Atherosclerotic plaques that result in acute coronary syndromes often occur at sites with coronary artery stenosis. The risk factors for developing these plaques and events at this point poorly understood. Methods In a prospective study‚ 697 patients with acute coronary syndromes underwent three-vessel coronary angiography and gray-scale and radiofrequency intravascular ultrasonographic imaging after percutaneous coronary intervention. Subsequent major adverse cardiovascular

    certain types of cancer‚ and sedentary lifestyle. Once the intimal layer of coronary artery is damaged‚ fatty deposits (plaques) made up of cholesterol and other cellular waste products tend to accumulate at the site of injury in a process called atherosclerosis. If the surface of these plaques breaks or ruptures‚ platelets will clump at the site to try to repair the artery. This clump can block the artery‚ leading to a heart attack. Recent research has

    Atherosclerosis is a disease affecting the arterial blood vessel and it is commonly referred to as a "hardening" or "furring" of the arteries. It is caused by the formation of multiple plaques within the arteries. Theses plaques begin to form when a vessel receives tiny injuries‚ usually at a point of branching. In turn these plaques gradually thicken and harden with fibrous material‚ cells‚ and other deposits‚ restricting the lumen (opening) of the vessel and reducing blood flow to the tissues‚

    Atherosclerosis Michael Oliveira BS-104-A&P II-MW1 12/01/2012 According to the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute‚ Atherosclerosis is a disease in which plaque builds up mainly inside the medium to large elastic and muscular arteries that carry oxygenated blood to the heart and other areas of the body. Over time‚ plaque‚ made up of fat‚ cholesterol‚ calcium‚ and other substances‚ hardens and narrows the arteries limiting the flow of oxygen to organs and other parts of the body. This

  • Essay On Atherosclerosis

    The risk factors related with atherosclerosis can be classified as modifiable and non-modifiable. It is essential to recognize the difference between the two since treatment can be used to hinder the modifiable variables. Non-modifiable risk factors include: age‚ gender‚ race or ethnicity‚ and family history. The physiologic changes related with age add to the advancement of atherosclerosis and CVD in adults. As an individual ages‚ the veins and arteries become less flexible and the walls of the

    Atherosclerosis is a form of cardiovascular disease in which the inner layers of artery walls are made thick and irregular by plaque deposits; arteries become narrow and blood supply can be reduced. (pg. 409) Atherosclerosis is deposited by fatty substances (called plaques) in the walls of the arteries. (pg.249) The arteries become narrow due to a person having high blood pressure which makes the heart work harder which forces the blood through the arteries making it narrow and stiffen. They also
