Atherosclerosis

Atherosclerosis is a common form of heart disease of the arteries characterized by the deposition of plaques of fatty material on their inner walls eventually restricts blood flow and plaque is made up of fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances found in the blood later plaque hardens and narrows your arteries which limits the flow of oxygen-rich blood to your organs and other parts of your body and this constricted circulation leads to less oxygen for the heart muscle, resulting in chest pain (angina), usually following exercise or excitement. It can also lead to serious problems, including heart attack, stroke, and stresses the heart muscle to the point of failure, which is what happens during a heart attack which may even lead to death. The disease can influence any artery in the body along with arteries in the heart, brain, arms, legs, pelvis, and kidneys which results in different diseases may develop based on which arteries are affected.
