Atherosclerosis

  • Atherosclerotic plaque is fatty, cholesterol- laden material which accumulates within the inner layer of the major arteries, narrowing the diameter of the lumen or opening.
  • It can occur in any artery in the body and is a direct cause of stroke when in the carotid arteries; myocardial infarction when in the coronary arteries; acute bowel ischemia when in the mesenteric vessels; peripheral vascular disease when in vessels to the legs, etc.
  • Atherosclerosis can result in increased blood pressure in an effort to overcome the higher pressures caused by arterial stenosis throughout the body.
