Atherosclerosis is a disease in which plaque (a fatty deposit along the artery wall) builds up inside your arteries. Arteries are blood vessels that carry oxygen-rich blood to your heart and other parts of your body.  Atherosclerosis limits the flow of oxygen-rich blood to your organs and other parts of your body.  Atherosclerosis can lead to serious problems, including heart attackstroke, or even death.
