  • Lesson Atherosclerosis: Pathophysiology teaches these concepts

  • Overview of the Pathophysiology of Arthrosclerosis/CVD

    Overview of the Pathophysiology of Arthrosclerosis/CVD: Introduction

  • Lesson Atherosclerosis: Pathophysiology addresses these key points

  • Introduction

    • Prevalence and incidence of CVD 
    • Overview of atherothrombosis 
    • Pathogenesis of atherogenesis 
    • Atherosclerosis contribution to: 
      •  Hypertension (HTN) 
      • Coronary heart disease (CHD) 
      • Heart failure 
      • Stroke 
      • Peripheral artery disease (PAD)
    • Risk factors for atherosclerosis 
    • Risk factors for CHD and myocardial infarction (MI)
    • Major adverse cardiac events (MACE)
  • Lesson Atherosclerosis: Pathophysiology introduces and defines these terms

  • HTN = Hypertension

    CHD = Coronary Heart Disease

    PAD = Peripheral Artery Disease 

    MI = Myocardial Infarction

    MACE = Major Adverse Cardiac Events
