Atherosclerosis treatment

Atherosclerosis occurs when arteries are narrowed due to excess formation of plaque, risking the flow of oxygen. Arteries are thin layers which carry the blood vessels containing oxygen and nutrients from the heart to all parts of the body. When arteries lose the elastic consistency that supports the blood circulation, they may stiffen or thicken the inner surface and compromises blood circulation. Plaques are made up of cholesterol, Calcium, lipids, and large cells called macrophages

Plaques can also cause sudden rupture or clot blood in the arteries. They weaken the wall of the artery by enlarging it, which may cause severe internal bleeding. Atherosclerosis may cause other medical problems such as peripheral artery disease, stroke, and kidney disease.

Atherosclerosis may not have exact symptoms or signs until there is a medical emergency. Atherosclerosis can be evaluated based on the type of arteries it affects.

Carotid Arteries: These arteries supply oxygen-filled blood vessels to the brain. Blockage of carotid arteries leads to carotid artery disease.

Coronary Arteries: These arteries supply oxygen-filled blood to the heart. Narrowing of these arteries leads to ischemic heart disease.

Renal Arteries: They supply oxygen-filled blood vessels to kidneys. If plaque narrows, these arteries may develop chronic kidney disease.

Peripheral Arteries: It is a major artery which supplies oxygen-filled blood to legs, arms, and pelvis. Blockage or narrow of these arteries may cause peripheral artery disease.
