The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews. On the other hand, physiologic methods are often less expensive and safer. The Journal of Clinical Investigation.

Carotid artery stenosis Renal artery stenosis. Wikimedia Commons has media related to Atherosclerosis. Low-density lipoprotein LDL particles in blood plasma invade the endothelium and become atteriosclerose, creating risk of cardiovascular disease. A similar form of an intramural calcification, presenting the picture of an early phase of arteriosclerosis, appears to be induced by a number of drugs that have an antiproliferative mechanism of action Rainer Liedtke As a consequence, this part of endothelium has increased risk to be injured and to be misrepaired.


Fatty streaks may appear and disappear.

Theories include high rates of tobacco use and in the case of the Vietnam soldiers the advent of processed foods after World War II. You can help by adding to it. These symptoms are also related to stroke death of brain cells. Free Radic Biol Med.

Youth worsens with age [2]. Arteritis Aortitis Buerger’s disease.


Discovery, Diagnosis and Treatment. BMP-2 gene expression and arterioxclerose on human vascular smooth muscle cells. The atherosclerotic process is not well understood. Aging is the most important risk factor for cardiovascular problems.

Atherosclerosis – Wikipedia

If the heart attack is not fatal, fibrous organization of the clot within the lumen ensues, covering the rupture but also producing stenosis or closure of the lumen, or over time and after repeated ruptures, resulting in a persistent, usually localized stenosis or blockage of the artery lumen. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

Symptoms for the marked narrowing are numbness within the arms or legs, as well as pain. Vascular calcification and osteoporosis: All the contents of arteriosclerode journal, except where otherwise noted, is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution License.

Arteries constantly expand and contract with each heartbeat, i. The ensuing inflammation leads to formation of atheromatous plaques in the arterial tunica intimaa region of the vessel wall located between the endothelium and the tunica media. But they atrosclerose not quantify the current state of the disease or directly track progression.


C-reactive protein adds to the predictive value of total and HDL cholesterol in determining risk of first myocardial infarction.

Arteriosclerose, Arteriolosclerose e Aterosclerose with subtitles | Amara

In this way, the growing of a plaque is also self-accelerating. To attract and stimulate macrophages, the cholesterol must be released from the LDL particles and oxidized, a key step in the ongoing inflammatory process. DNA strand breaks also increased in atherosclerotic plaques.

WS patients develop a considerable burden of atherosclerotic plaques in their coronary arteries and aorta: The process is worsened if there is insufficient high-density lipoprotein HDLthe lipoprotein particle arteriossclerose removes cholesterol from tissues and carries it back to the liver.


Biochimica et Biophysica Acta. Thus, the accumulation of misrepairs of endothelium is focalized and self-accelerating. Important is this altered remodeling makes the local endothelium have increased fragility to damage and have reduced repair-efficiency.
