Atherosclerosis, a disease of large- and medium-size arteries, is one of the main causes of death in the world. Intimal thickening (stenosis) and subsequent blood clot formation (thrombosis) in arteries can lead to ischemia and its associated disability and mortality. Severe atherosclerosis interferes with blood flow.
