Abstract

Any theory of the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis must fit with observed distributions of lesions within and among arterial systems and among populations of diverse economic, ethnic or social circumstance. It must also be consistent with the known effects of various factors (risk factors) on the extent of atherosclerotic lesions. Thus, a review of the topography and geographic pathology of atherosclerosis and of risk factors for atherosclerotic lesions would seem appropriate as a preliminary to discussions on the role or thrombosis in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis.
