Rancid fats and oils taste very bad even in small amounts, so people avoid eating them.


Diabetics, despite not having clinically detectable atherosclerotic disease, ateroscerose more severe debility from atherosclerotic events over time than non-diabetics who have already had atherosclerotic events.

As a consequence, this part of endothelium has increased risk to be injured and to be misrepaired. The average age was calculated from the ages of of the soldiers.

Journal of the American College of Cardiology. Inflammation Arteritis Aortitis Buerger’s disease.

Bone morphogenetic protein-2 activates NADPH oxidase to increase endoplasmic reticulum stress and human coronary artery smooth muscle cell calcification. In recent years, developments in nuclear imaging techniques such as PET and SPECT have provided ways of estimating the severity of atherosclerotic plaques.

As demonstrated by human clinical studies, most severe events occur in locations with heavy plaque, yet little or no lumen narrowing present before debilitating events suddenly occur. This section needs expansion. The distribution of atherosclerotic plaques in a part of arterial endothelium is inhomogeneous. Critical molecular switches involved in BMPinduced osteogenic differentiation of mesenchymal cells.


The New England Journal of Medicine. Sub-clinically, the disease begins to appear in childhood, and rarely is already present at birth. Obstruction of arteries supplying the heart muscle results in a heart attackwhile the arteriosvlerose of arteries supplying the brain results in an ischaemic stroke.

Arteriosclerose – Wikipedia, a enciclopedia libre

Most commonly, soft plaque suddenly ruptures see vulnerable plaquecausing the formation of a thrombus that will rapidly slow or stop blood flow, leading to death of the tissues fed by the atdrosclerose in approximately five minutes. Methods to increase high-density lipoprotein HDL particle concentrations, which aterozclerose some animal studies largely reverses and remove atheromas, are being developed and researched.

Its levels have been associated with atherosclerosis in human studies and animal research suggest that there can be a causal relation. Retrieved from ” https: A protective fibrous cap normally forms between the fatty deposits and the artery lining the intima. The American Journal of Medicine. This is the manifestation of a misrepair. Areas of severe narrowing, stenosisdetectable by angiographyand to a lesser extent ” stress testing ” have long been the focus of human diagnostic techniques for cardiovascular diseasein general.

The result is the formation of a thrombus blood clot overlying the atheroma, which obstructs blood flow acutely.


Initial damage to the endothelium results in arteriosclerosse inflammatory response. 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. Monocytes enter the artery wall from the bloodstream, with platelets adhering to the area of insult.

These deposits demonstrate unequivocal evidence of the disease, relatively advanced, even though the lumen of the artery is often still normal by angiography. Aortoiliac occlusive disease Degos disease Erythromelalgia Fibromuscular dysplasia Raynaud’s phenomenon.


The presence of the plaque induces the muscle cells of the blood vessel to stretch, compensating for the additional bulk, and the endothelial lining thickens, increasing the separation between the plaque and lumen.

Chronic venous insufficiency Chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency Superior vena cava syndrome Inferior vena cava syndrome Venous ulcer. No age was recorded in nearly of the men. Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol. Aging is the most important risk factor for cardiovascular problems. Retrieved 5 November This event is called an infarction.

A much-cited report involved autopsies of U. All studies regarding this drug were halted in December Early atherogenesis is characterized by the adherence of blood circulating monocytes a type of white blood cell to the vascular bed lining, the endotheliumthen by their migration to the sub-endothelial space, and further activation into monocyte-derived macrophages. In addition to these cellular activities, there is also smooth muscle proliferation and migration from the tunica media into the intima in response to cytokines secreted by damaged endothelial cells.

The senile cardiac calcification syndrome.
