Atherosclerosis is a degenerative process that, during years, leads to the accumulation of lipids and other blood-borne materials into the arterial walls.1 The most important consequences correlated to the progression of atherosclerosis are: (1) the narrowing of the artery lumen, (2) the thickening of the wall, (3) the loss of elasticity, and (4) the reduction of the artery blood flow.
