How is an Artheroma formed?
- Fatty Deposits build up in the endothelium lining of the artery.
- Overtime this hardens to form an artheromas plaque
- When this plaque builds up it blocks the lumen of the artery which restricts blood flow.
- Blood containing oxygen is not being able to be pumped around the body, this is needed for respiration which means there will not be enough glucose either for respiration.
- There will be no enery in the form of ATP being released to the working muscles.
