A disease characterized by thickening and fatty degeneration of the inner coat of the arteries.
The fatty deposits that build up inside an artery and eventually lead to it becoming blocked search for Atheroma
fat deposited in the wall of medium and larger sized arteries, Associated with the laying down of calcium and fibrous tissue, causing narrowing of the artery. Atherosclerosis and arteriosclerosis are often used interchangeably.
a condition where the walls of the arteries thicken and the arteries no longer work properly. The disorder occurs when lipid is deposited, or as a result of fibrosis or the growth of smooth muscle tissue.
A deposit of fat and other substances in the inner lining of the artery wall which causes narrowing and a reduction of blood flow, on to which clots may form.
collection of fatty plaque in the arteriesatherosclerosis: a type of arteriosclerosis from fatty plaque deposits on artery walls that block the flow of blood
The fat deposits inside arteries in atherosclerosis.
Breakdown of the walls of the arteries due to the formation in them of fatty plaques and scar tissue. This limits blood circulation.
a fatty deposit in the intima (inner lining) of an artery; can obstruct blood flow
a mass of plaque of degenerated, thickened arterial intima occurring in atherosclerosis
lipid deposits in the arteries, producing a yellow swelling on the endothelial surface; a characteristic of atherosclerosis.
Localized intimal thickening associated with fibrosis, accumulation of lipid and smooth muscle cell proliferation.
Arteriosclerosis with degenerative associations
Fatty deposits that build up inside an artery and can eventually block it completely and cause a stroke.
Bulging yellow mass or "plaque" that forms within the walls lining the arteries. Atheromas (Italian, porridge) contain a mix of fatty and fibrous scar tissue and, when deposited on the inner wall of an artery, reduce its inner diameter.
Thickening of the wall of a large artery.
Fatty deposit in an artery; the first stage plaque.
A build up of materials in the endothelial lining of arteries. Contains cholesterol, lipoprotein A, unsaturated fatty acids. It is considered to be a patching material for damaged endothelial cells. Atherosclerotic plaques form when atheromas contain oxidized materials. The oxidation attracts macrophages and calcium forming an unstable patch, which tends to flake off. Oxidized atheroma are the cause of heart attacks and strokes. Non-oxidized atheromas tend to be very stable and rarely participate in cardiovascular disease.
collection of fatty plaque in the arteries
Thickened and degenerated plague of arterial lining. It occurs in the atherosclerosis.
Abnormal deposit of fat in the wall of an artery
Fatty material that can build up within the walls of the arteries.
fatty deposits on the inner walls of blood vessels, which can cause narrowing and decrease blood flow
Build up of fatty deposits in the blood vessels which restricts blood flow
layer or plaque forming on the lining of an artery.
In pathology, an atheroma (plural: atheromata) is an abnormal accumulation and swelling (-oma) with cells or cell debris, lipids (cholesterol and fatty acids), calcium mineral and a variable amount of fibrous connective tissue within the walls of arteries. In the context of heart or artery matters, atheromata are commonly referred to as atheromatous plaques.
