Specializes in Cardiology

Lifelong: There is no way to significantly reverse arteriosclerosis. The calcified cholesterol plaques will remain there lifelong. The goal is to prevent this, reduce further development, and reduce the potential problems associated with it - heart attack, stroke, leg claudication.
