A build up of cholesterol plaque in the walls of arteries causing obstruction of blood flow. Plaques may rupture causing acute occlusion of the artery by clot. Atherosclerosis often has no symptoms until a plaque ruptures or the buildup is severe enough to block blood flow. A healthy diet and exercise can help. Treatments include medications, procedures to open blocked arteries and surgery.
