Arteries carry blood from the heart to the rest of the body, and Atherosclerosis can put blood flow at risk as your arteries become blocked. It causes the narrowing of arteries due to plaque buildup on the artery walls. It is also known as arteriosclerotic vascular disease. Any symptoms of this condition is a wake-up call, or may you end up suffering from a stroke and heart attack.
To keep the arteries smooth and allow blood to flow quickly, they line with a thin layer of cells. This blood flow is called the endothelium. The body sends a type of white blood cell to clean up this cholesterol, but sometimes, the cells get stuck at the affected site. Atherosclerosis starts when the endothelium becomes damaged, allowing the harmful cholesterol to build up in the artery wall.
Over time, plaque can build up cholesterol, macrophages, calcium, and other substances from the blood. Sometimes, the plaque grows to a specific size and stops growing, causing the individual no problems. However, sometimes, the plaque clogs up the artery, disrupting blood flow around the body. Clogs up arteries make blood clots more likely, which can result in life-threatening conditions.
In some cases, the plague eventually breaks open. If this happens, platelets gather in the affected area and can stick together, forming blood clots. This blood clot can block the artery, lead to stroke and heart attack. The condition can affect the entire artery tree but mainly affects the more gigantic, high-pressure arteries.
Ischemic Heart Disease
Ischemic heart disease happens when the heart arteries cannot deliver enough oxygen-rich blood to the tissues of the core when needed during periods of stress or physical effort.
If blood flow to your heart muscle is reduced or blocked, you may have angina (chest pain or discomfort) or a heart attack. Coronary microvascular disease is another type of ischemic heart disease. It occurs when the heart's tiny arteries do not function normally.
