Blocked Artery Due to Thrombus Plaque Formation - Medical Animation
This 3D medical animation shows an artery wall "blocked", or occluded, by a thrombus (stationary) plaque formation.rnrnAs blood cells and other elements flow through the arterial lumen, the interior wall of the blood vessel (tunica intima) tears, allowing cholesterol deposits to form a plaque thrombus within the wall itself. Over time, the buildup can cause complete blockage of the artery, and tissue death beyond the site of the occlusion.
