Author and Disclosure Information

Abstract

The speaker describes the formation of the lesions of atherosclerosis as a response to tissue injury and the resulting interaction between the endothelium, smooth muscle, monocyte/macrophages, and the platelet. When the nature of the lesions of atherosclerosis is better understood, prevention of sequelae such as thrombosis or infarction will be improved.
