Heart Attack Due to Atherosclerosis

by birtanpublished on September 26, 2020

Atherosclerosis is a life-threatening disease that may have begun to develop during childhood this condition is a process in which deposits of fatty material, call plaque, build up inside the walls of arteries reducing, or completely blocking, blood flow. although the exact causes of atherosclerosis are not clear many scientists think it begins with damage to the inner wall of an artery,

Called the endothelium. Substances traveling in the blood, such as cholesterol, fats, and cellular waste products, keenly inside the damaged area and the arterial wall when chemical reactions occurring within the build-up of material cause cholesterol molecules oxidized this initiates an inflammatory response in which the ended delial cells at the damage side

Release chemicals that signal call for help on in response monocytes bloodstream travel to the damage site ruled stimulation from oxidized cholesterol converge the monocytes into macrophages who the macrophages eat and digest the cholesterol molecules all

As a result of this process the macrophages change into bone cells which accumulate to form plaque for as the black increases in size the arterial wall thickens and hardens on on and at the same time smooth muscle cells within the arterial wall

Begin to multiply the and most the smooth muscle cells moved to the service at the plaque the cells contribute to the formation affirmed by Bruce Campbell covering the plaque then surely the passageway through the artery near

This enough to reduce blood flow and the amount of oxygen received other organs it supplies on overtime the cat may erode and break open releasing plaque into the bloodstream the plaque can flow downstream and contribute to the whole nation to like which can stop like

As a result limited blood supplies available to the area surrounding the partially blocked artery degrading and potentially killing the neighboring tissue
