Athersclerosis

Were you looking for information about Atherosclerosis? Athersclerosis is a common misspelling of atherosclerosis.
 
Atherosclerosis, also known as "hardening of the arteries," is a progressive disease that causes certain blood vessels in the body to harden and become narrow. This condition occurs when there is a build-up of plaque on the inside walls of the arteries. Possible risk factors for this condition include high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and cigarette smoking. Treatment for atherosclerosis may involve lifestyle changes, medication, certain medical procedures, or a combination of these.
