Age Related and Atherosclerotic Changes in Aortic Elastin
A point we wish to make is the fact that although there has been a great deal of work on dietary fats and their effects on plasma lipids and the effects of these lipids on the development of fatty plaques in the arterial wall, there has been remarkably little effort put into the attempt to find out what components of the arterial connective tissue are damaged at the site of the fatty or calcified plaques, or which of the normal components of the wall are particularly susceptible to fat deposition or calcification. Other questions to be dealt with are how these components of the wall are normally protected and why the damage is so sharply localized.
