In brief: Blocked arteries
It leads to arteries getting too narrow or blocked which would affect the function of whatever is supplied by that artery.
If it is an artery to your leg, you could get pain or even get gangrene. If the arteries to the heart got blocked you could get chest pain or a heart attack.
