Atherosclerosis is a chronic disease of the elastic and muscular-elastic type arteries, arising from a violation of lipid and protein metabolism and accompanied by the deposition of cholesterol and lipoprotein fractions of some in the intima of blood vessels. Deposits are formed as atheromatous plaques.

Until recently there was not 100% and effective means of atherosclerosis treatment, but today SwissMedica XXI century clinics offers a new, revolutionary method – mesenchymal stem cell therapy. Now for a better understanding of the disease, consider the main reasons for its occurrence.

The causes of atherosclerosis

  • Wrong lifestyle. This broad concept includes unhealthy diet, bad habits and lack of physical activity.
  • Excessive calorie or food fat content leads to increased levels of blood cholesterol. Cholesterol is deposited on the walls of blood vessels in the form of plaques, and atherosclerosis appears.
  • Smoking or alcohol also contributes to the development of the disease. Refusal of bad habits early in life is the best prevention of atherosclerosis in adulthood.
  • Sedentary lifestyle.
  • Age. The older the person, the more progressive symptoms of atherosclerosis.
  • Heredity. Atherosclerosis develops under the influence of many factors, and overall health which is dependent on genetic factors also affects.
  • Gender. Atherosclerosis is more common for men, because cholesterol is absorbed in the body, with the participation of estrogen – a female hormone.
  • Diabetes. Diabetics should closely monitor their health to spot the symptoms of atherosclerosis.

Atherosclerosis disease symptoms due to its origin

  • Brain arteriosclerosis. Brain ischemia and deterioration of its functions, which results in memory weakening, intellectual abilities reduction and mental changes.
  • Kidneys arteries atherosclerosis. Leads to renal ischemia and hypertension.
  • Leg arteries atherosclerosis. Cooling and plowing legs, pain in the calves, which arise when walking. It is also possible the emergence of trophic ulcers and gangrene.
  • Mesenteric artery atherosclerosis. Characterized by abnormalities in the gastrointestinal tract and the development of necrosis of intussusceptions.

Memory impairment is the most specific symptom of the disease, and it is distributed mainly on the recent events. As for the childhood or accidents that happened five years ago the patient could tell in the smallest details. A characteristic feature is the headache that develops due to the lack of oxygen caused by stagnation in the blood vessels. The intensity of pain is different, usually increasing with fatigue. Over time, the pain recedes and becomes constant, aggravated with dizziness that people are starting to get used to this state.

Also concomitant symptomatic manifestations are:

  • Sonitus.
  • Flashing dots before the eyes.
  • Uncertain slightly limped gait.
  • Sweating, face redness.
  • Sleep disturbances.
  • Malaise.

Thus, summarizing the clinical picture of cerebral arteriosclerosis, it could be identified that it’s connected associated with hearing, vision, speech, coordination and sensitivity violations.

It is worth noting that the disease’s severity of symptoms depends on the severity of vascular damage as well as from the damage level of brain cells. Disease progression accompanied with the imbalance of psychological and emotional background and symptoms become negative, which leads to a decrease in attention, irritability and a tendency to depression.

Atherosclerosis consequences

Atherosclerosis manifestation and its effect on human health are very diverse. Of course, atherosclerosis is a process that affects the entire body. But nevertheless, in a particular case, there is usually a dominant defeat of one or several organs. This predominance determines the impact of the disease on the body.

What diseases can atherosclerosis cause?

  • If it affects the blood vessels of the brain: stroke (necrosis of the brain tissue), brain lining bleeding, chronic ischemic attack.
  • If it affects the carotid arteries: hypertension and increased risk of stroke.
  • If it affects the heart blood vessels: ischemic heart disease, myocardial infarction (necrosis of the heart muscle), heart rhythm disturbances, sudden death.
  • If it affects the aorta - the main artery of the body: arterial hypertension, aortic aneurysm (bag-shaped extension of the aorta with thinning of its walls).
  • If it affects the renal arteries: renal infarction (necrosis of the kidney tissue), which leads to hypertension.
  • If it affects the blood vessels of the intestine: ischemic bowel disease with possible necrosis of the intestine.
  • If it affects the arteries of the lower limbs: obliterating atherosclerosis of the lower limbs leads to trophic ulcers and gangrene (necrosis).
  • If it affects the retinal vessels: hemorrhage with deterioration of vision up to its complete loss.

Here's a rather large, diverse and terrible list of consequences that may result from atherosclerosis. So don’t underestimate this disease and ask for help if you need it.

SwissMedica atherosclerosis mesenchymal stem cells treatment

Stem cells Atherosclerosis treatment involves putting the adult autologous stem cell into the patient’s tissue. Moreover, the cells are one’s own stem cells, so they cannot be rejected. As soon as the cells are put into the tissue, the array formation of the new healthy cells begins. The whole point is that the creation processes dominates over catabolic ones, and in that way treatment occurs. With the use of stem cell atherosclerosis can be effectively treated at any stage.

Therapy using mesenchymal stem cells shows excellent results. It’s about 2-4 month to feel the whole effect of stem cells therapy. But we will follow you up at least for half a year after the treatment, so you don’t need to worry about absence of help, consultation and accompany.

Why SwissMedica is the most desirable stem cell therapy clinic?

  • Atherosclerosis treatment reveals organism inner abilities.
  • It’s 100% safe.
  • Stem cell therapy for atherosclerosis can’t cause side effect or allergies.
  • Absence of oncological complications.
  • Personalized care.
  • Top treatment standards.
  • Modern equipment and technologies (RNA-based medications, cellular active factors, RNA-based medications)
  • Up-to-date methods of organism revitalization, restoration and regeneration.
  • Everyday skills improving.
  • No "hopeless" patients.
  • A lot of positive feedback.

If you hear about stem cell therapy for the first time, contact us and you will get more information. As well as if you need help or diagnostics. Stem cells therapy for atherosclerosis is arranged in Moscow, Luсerne and Belgrade.
