EP 60: Cardiovascular Disease - Atherosclerosis
Manage episode 343440244 series 2785738
This week we are back on the pathology / pathophysiology train. We will be exploring pathologies from a more clinical context as this is what will help support us with our studies (and hopefully yours) going forward.
We start off with atherosclerosis, which is the process of depositing lipids in the artery walls and hardening of these walls which in turn can cause cardiovascular disease. We discuss the risk factors, co-morbidities, clinical signs and symptoms, prevention and treatment.
