In Circulatory system disorders, we can see illustrations related to cardiovascular diseases or heart disorders. Also conditions that involve narrowing or blockage of the coronary arteries, carotid arteries, and blood vessels. Other heart diseases are those that affect the muscles, valves, or heart rhythm. In summary, there are many types of heart disease, but the most common is the narrowing or blockage of the coronary arteries, the blood vessels that supply blood to the heart itself. Also the heart defects with which you were born.
In this section we will find illustrations about the aneurysm, we will be able to see the widening or bulging of the wall of an artery. Aneurysms can appear at any point in an artery, but they mainly manifest in the abdominal aorta. Most brain aneurysms show no symptoms until they become large, leak blood, or rupture. Also in these illustrations we will see that there are different types of aneurysm. The most common are: abdominal aortic aneurysm, thoracic aortic aneurysm, dissecting aneurysm or aortic dissection.
Other illustrations of circulatory system disorders are those related to arteriosclerosis, a disease in which plaque accumulates within the arteries. This plaque is made up of fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances found in the blood. The arteries are the ones that carry oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the tissues and organs. In atherosclerosis, the hardening of fat occurs. Therefore high-fat diets can lead to the formation of these plaques. When blood vessels become less elastic, blood pressure rises and can result in strokes and damage to the kidneys and heart.
