Second Opinion on Atherosclerosis

Expert opinions and online advice on atherosclerosis delivered via your computer or mobile device. Second opinion is available wherever there is an internet. All you need is a PC or a smartphone.

Atherosclerosis is a systemic degenerative disease of the arteries. It occurs when calcium, connective tissue and fat deposits develop in the blood vessels, which over time weakens their walls and impedes blood flow.

These pathological changes occur slowly. At first, they do not cause any symptoms. However, later, due to the progressive narrowing of the blood vessels, various organs, such as the heart, brain, kidneys, suffer from a reduced blood supply.

Congenital predisposition, an unhealthy lifestyle (unhealthy diet, lack of exercise) combined with risk factors such as diabetes, smoking and high blood pressure can contribute to the development of the disease.

Arteriosclerosis treatment plan depends on its stage. Medications (blood thinners, statins, drugs to control diabetes and blood pressure) may be prescribed, and endovascular (catheter) or surgical interventions (bypass surgery) may be performed for life-threatening stenosis.
