Peripheral arteries, which supply blood to the legs, arms, and pelvis, also experience marked narrowing due to plaque rupture and clots. The term atherogenic is used for substances or processes that cause formation of atheroma. The distribution of atherosclerotic plaques in a part atrrosclerose arterial endothelium is inhomogeneous.

Regulatory role of endothelium in the expression of genes affecting arterial calcification. There is evidence that some anticoagulants, particularly warfarin, which inhibit clot formation by interfering with Vitamin K metabolism, may actually arterioslcerose arterial calcification in the long term despite reducing clot formation in the short term. The calcification deposits, [54] after they have become sufficiently advanced, are partially visible on coronary artery computed tomography or electron beam tomography EBT as rings of increased radiographic density, forming halos around the outer edges of the atheromatous plaques, within the artery wall.

Initial damage to the ateroscperose results in an inflammatory response. Chronic venous insufficiency Chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency Superior vena cava syndrome Inferior vena cava syndrome Venous ulcer. Plasma osteopontin levels in prediction of prognosis in acute myocardial infarction. A much-cited report involved autopsies of U.

The following terms are similar, yet distinct, in both spelling and meaning, and can be easily confused: For the journal, see Atherosclerosis journal. Although the disease process tends to be slowly progressive over decades, it usually remains asymptomatic until an atheroma ulcerateswhich leads to immediate blood clotting at the site of atheroma ulcer. One recent hypothesis suggests that, for unknown reasons, leukocytessuch as monocytes or basophilsbegin to attack the endothelium of the artery lumen in cardiac muscle.


Atherogenesis is the developmental process of atheromatous plaques. The key to the more effective approaches is to combine multiple different treatment strategies. The soft science of dietary fat”. Its levels have been associated with atherosclerosis in human studies and animal research suggest that there can be a causal relation. The majority of cardiovascular events that involve sudden rupture of the atheroma plaque do not display any evident narrowing of the lumen.

Pathophysiologic relationships between oxidative stress and atherosclerosis

Important is this altered remodeling makes the local endothelium have increased fragility to damage and have reduced repair-efficiency. The health food industry’s dietary supplements are self-regulated and outside of FDA regulations. Most severe clinical events do not occur at plaques that produce high-grade arteriosflerose.

Areas of severe narrowing, stenosisdetectable by angiographyand to a lesser extent ” stress testing ” have long been the focus of human diagnostic techniques arteriosdlerose cardiovascular diseasein general. This section needs expansion.

If this is the myocardium heart muscle angina cardiac chest pain or myocardial infarction heart attack develops. Archived from the original on The average age was calculated from the ages of of the soldiers. Statinshigh blood pressure medicationaspirin [5]. 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.

In this way, the growing of a plaque is also self-accelerating. If the blood flow is completely blocked, cell deaths occur due to the lack of oxygen supply to nearby cells, resulting in necrosis.


Circulating osteoprotegerin levels and long-term prognosis in patients with acute coronary syndromes. Often lifestyle modification is combined with medication therapy. High expression of genes for calcification-regulating proteins in human atherosclerotic plaques.


This may be promoted aterpsclerose redox signaling induction of factors such as VCAM-1which recruit circulating monocytes, and M-CSFwhich is selectively required for the differentiation of monocytes to macrophages. However, these methods focus on detecting only severe narrowing, not the underlying atherosclerosis disease.

Archived from the original on 26 December Changes in diet may help prevent the development of atherosclerosis. Plaques that have ruptured are called complicated plaques. Views Read Edit View history. Within a part of arterial wall, the oldest plaque is always the biggest, and is the most dangerous one to cause blockage of local artery.

A complete blockage leads to ischemia of the myocardial heart muscle and damage. If the enlargement is beyond proportion to the atheroma thickness, then an aneurysm is created. An association between the bacterial genes encoding trimethylamine lyases — ateroscelrose enzymes involved in TMAO generation — and atherosclerosis has been noted.

Thus, greater attention has been focused on “vulnerable plaque” from the late s onwards. Smooth muscle cell phenotypic transition associated with calcification: The monocytes differentiate into macrophageswhich proliferate locally, [49] ingest oxidized LDL, slowly turning into large ” foam cells ” — so-called because of their changed appearance resulting from the numerous internal cytoplasmic vesicles and resulting high lipid content.

The atherosclerotic process is not well understood. Monocytes enter the artery wall from the bloodstream, with platelets adhering to the area of insult. These complications of advanced atherosclerosis are chronic, slowly progressive and cumulative.
