Hi, there. There are many long-term consequences of arteriosclerosis. It all depends which arteries are affected. If the arteries in the limbs are affected, then the circulation in legs and arms is compromised. It is called peripheral arterial disease. If the arteries that lead blood to the heart (coronary arteries) are affected, then there is coronary disease, angina pectoris or even heart attack. If cerebral arteries are affected, then transitory ischemic attack (TIA) or even stroke is possible. Arteriosclerosis can cause aneurysm – a bulge in the wall of an artery. Renal artery’s arteriosclerosis can affect kidney functioning. That is why arteriosclerosis must be prevented by a proper lifestyle.
