Abstract

Atherosclerosis continues to be the leading cause of mortality and morbidity in the United States and in several other countries. This disease has an insidious onset early in life, is progressive in extent and severity, and usually remains clinically silent until the fourth or fifth decade of life. The natural history of this disease is such that the onset of symptoms is associated with the presence of severe lesions characterized on the basis of significant stenosis, ulceration, or thrombosis.
