HARDENING OF THE ARTERIES

Note: National Library of Medicine, Mayo Clinic

  1. Hardening of the arteries (also called atherosclerosis), is a common disorder. It occurs when fat, cholesterol, and other substances build up in the walls of the arteries. These deposits form hard structures called plaques. Atherosclerosis is a specific type of arteriosclerosis, but the terms are sometimes used interchangeably. Arteriosclerosis occurs when the blood vessels that carry oxygen and nutrients from your heart to the rest of your body (arteries) become thick and stiff sometimes restricting blood flow to your organs and tissues. Healthy arteries are flexible and elastic, but over time, the walls in your arteries can harden, a condition commonly called hardening of the arteries. These plaques can burst, triggering a blood clot. Although atherosclerosis is often considered a heart problem, it can affect arteries anywhere in your body. Hardening of the arteries does not cause symptoms until blood flow to part of the body becomes slowed or blocked.
