    Lower Extremity Arteriosclerosis

    The lesion of arteriosclerosis begins as a fatty streak due to a local accumulation of lipid-laden foam cells in the artery intimal layer. This happens when a turbulent blood flow has triggered an endothelial dysfunction and the inhibition of nitric oxide production, which result in the production of adhesion molecules…[2]
