L'athérosclérose, principale cause d'obstruction des artères, se caractérise par la formation de dépôts de matières graisseuses, appelés athéromes ou plaques athéroscléreuses, sur la paroi interne des artères. Il peut cependant s'agir de simples stries graisseuses, qui ne provoquent qu'une faible obstruction et aucun symptôme.
