Atherosclerosis starts with fatty streaks
appearing in blood vessel walls.
The microfibre sensor could also be beneficial for patients suffering from atherosclerosis, which is the thickening and stiffening of the arteries caused by the accumulation of fatty streaks
Obese children also have risk factors for atherosclerosis such as endothelial dysfunction, carotid intima-media thickening, the development of early aortic and coronary arterial fatty streaks
, decreased arterial distensibility, and increased left atrial diameter (7).
Administration of HCD to the rats for period of 8 weeks has caused an early stage of atherosclerosis indicated by fatty streaks
evidence in the tunica media (Fig.
also found that in BALB/c mice oil red O staining of fatty streaks
showed intra and extra cellular lipids thus confirming findings of present study18.
Page 389: Wherever they saw fatty streaks
(an early state of atherosclerosis), they also found a deficiency in EFAs (Parent Essential Oil's LA).
For example, the abdominal aorta can show thickening of the walls and fatty streaks
in smokers as young as 15 or 16 years of age.
And half of kids now have fatty streaks
in their arteries and that is literally the early stage of heart disease.
The endothelial layer of the atherosclerotic fatty streaks
in the arteries was seen .
90) Fuchs et al modified Goutallier's original classification scheme of fatty infiltration to MRI--describing the proportion of fatty streaks
and replacement relative to muscle.
formed of subendothelial collections of foam cells and lipids now appear.
South African studies indicated that early lesions such as fatty streaks
were common in black South Africans, but levels of more advanced lesions were lower than those reported for white South Africans, black and white Americans, and European populations.
