About Atherosclerosis

The prime purpose of this article is to know about atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is a precise type of arteriosclerosis in which an artery wall thickens as a consequence of invasion and accumulation of white blood cells. The accumulation of the WBCs is termed “fatty streaks” early on because of the appearance being similar to that of marbled steak. These accumulations contain living, energetic WBCs and remnants of dead cells, including cholesterol and triglycerides.
