Pathology of atherosclerosis includes a series of events. Firstly endothelial damage followed by stimulation of LDL-C and it’s oxidation in walls of vessel. Due to this monocytes reach the site, transform into macrophages and accumulate lipids which finally lead to atherosclerotic plaques.
Blood vessels loose elasticity and become thicker and stiffened. Atherosclerotic plaques are usually found in the aorta and large aortic vessels.
