Cause of Death: Atherosclerosis

Atherosclerosis is a build-up of cholesterol plaque in the walls of arteries causing obstruction of blood flow. Plaques may rupture causing acute occlusion of the artery by a clot.

Atherosclerosis often has no symptoms until a plaque ruptures or the buildup is severe enough to block blood flow.

A healthy diet and exercise can help. Treatments include medications, procedures to open blocked arteries and surgery.
