Atherosclerosis is characterized by the formation of heterogeneous plaques (atheromas) in the intima of the medium and large arteries; plaques contain lipids, inflammatory cells, smooth muscle cells and connective tissue.

Risk factors include dyslipidemia, diabetes mellitus, smoking, family predisposition, sedentary lifestyle, obesity and hypertension. Symptoms appear with an increase in size or with a rupture of a plaque, when blood flow decreases or stops; the picture of the disease depends on the affected artery. The diagnosis is made clinically and confirmed by angiography, ultrasound or other imaging studies. Treatment includes the elimination of risk factors, lifestyle and dietary modifications, physical activity and the appointment of anti-atherogenic drugs.

Atherosclerosis is the most common form of arteriosclerosis, which is a general term for several diseases that cause thickening and loss of elasticity of the arterial walls. Atherosclerosis is also the most serious and clinically significant form of arteriosclerosis, because it causes coronary heart disease and cerebrovascular disease. Non-atheromatous forms of arteriosclerosis include Mankeberg arteriosclerosis and arteriolosclerosis.
