  • Pulmonary artery atherosclerosis associated with pulmonary hypertensionAtherosclerosis

    Atherosclerosis is a specific form of arteriosclerosis in which an artery wall thickens as a result of the accumulation of calcium and fatty materials such as cholesterol and triglyceride. It reduces the elasticity of the artery walls and therefore allows less blood to travel through. This also increases blood pressure. It is a syndrome affecting arterial blood vessels, a chronic inflammatory response in the walls of arteries, caused largely by the accumulation of macrophages and white blood cells and promoted by low-density lipoproteins without adequate removal of fats and cholesterol from the macrophages by functional high-density lipoproteins. It is commonly referred to as a hardening or furring of the arteries. It is caused by the formation of multiple atheromatous plaques within the arteries. The plaque is divided into three distinct components:
