The aterotrombosis is
that originates more than 55 million deaths to the year anywhere in the world according to the World - wide Organization of the
, is to say that more than half of the deaths in the world they are related to this
to the heart, the
of chest, the
, the trombosis of legs and other
vasculares is to say caused by severe
, are manifestations of
: the aterotrombosis.
This aterotrombóticos group of
or events, originates themselves by the accumulation of the fat in the arteries, which creates
"fibrous layer", that when injuring
cork of plaquetas (as if outside
scab) and finally
clot that blocks the route of the blood towards organs like the heart, the head or the legs, causing of this form
aterotrombótico event in some of these zones.
Plaquetas, small cells and components of the blood are those that play
very important role in these
, that complications can be prevented and be avoided when they are taken care of on time.
The blood is composed by diverse types of cells:
globules that transport oxygen and nutrimentos to all the body, the targets which they defend the organism of
and tróxicos agents and plaquetas that is accumulated for "taponear" when there is some
and avoiding the excessive loss of blood.
The blood constantly crosses the body by
network of arteries, hair veins and
to be able to do it and to arrive at
cell, weave and organ of the body, it must have certain texture and
by clean channels that allow him to do it fluidly.
When through some reason, the blood cannot happen well between the blood vessels, can be originated two kinds of
: or it forms trombo, which it is like
clot that the passage of the blood blocks and / or the blood does not arrive mainly by diverse reasons by the diminution of the thickness of the arteries by accumulated fat, to certain parts of organs of the body that when not receiving oxygen opportunely die causing
The aterotrombosis is the combination of these two
the aterosclerosis, that is
that is developed throughout the life and it must to the fat accumulation in the
elevation and triglicéridos,
and lack of physical
the trombosis, that is the formation of plaquetarias masses, that when attracting other chemical cells and substances increase of size and form sanguineous clots that
on this fat layer, making difficult plus the circulation of the blood.
The aterotrombosis, therefore is
very varied manifestations depending as large as the obstruction, the obstructed time and mainly of the part of the body that lets receive oxygen. Thus it is possible to be dealed with an
to the heart, an
of chest or even
isquémico: trombosis and
or trombosis in the legs, among others.
The fat layer that is deposited in an artery knows like "aterosclerisis" and is separata of the blood by
cover of endotelio, call "fibrous capsule", that can be very heavy, in this case we have "a stable" fat plate, well separated of the blood.
if the fibrous capsule is thin, easily it can erode or be injured.
in the fibrous capsule is detected by plaquetas as
"flight" reason why initiates the process to add
and to form the plaquetario cork finally and
clot that the passage of the blood blocks giving rise to
Depending on the affected area, there are several types of aterotrombóticos events that are:
Event or EVC, that originates one embolia, trombosis or
or EAP, that affects the legs mainly and it is pronounced with pain,
incapacity and later gangrene or necrosis.
or SCA that can give to
of the myocardium or unstable
