Hypertensive Atherosclerosis Cardiovascular Disease

Hypertensive Atherosclerosis Cardiovascular Diseases and Complications

Hypertensive Atherosclerosis Cardiovascular Disease is said to be one of the major causes of death around the world. Cardiovascular diseases and complications involved are many and hence need to be treated at the earliest. The situation may strike at a young age and if left untreated may prove to be fatal.

Cardiovascular diseases are said to be one of the major reasons for high mortality rate in America and rest of the world. The related complication which may arise because of the cardiovascular diseases too is responsible for the large number of deaths around the world. Because of the Cardiovascular Diseases (CVD), a large number of diseases may arise like the inadequate supply of oxygen to the brain, lowering in the pumping of blood, failure of the valves. Sometimes because of the accumulation of various toxins in the body too, such problems may arise. CVD basically includes the following diseases- hypertension, atherosclerosis, heart diseases and stroke. So it is essential that CVD needs to be treated at the earliest or else the complications may prove fatal for the person.

With regard to the blood pressure which is also called as hypertension, if you suffer from high blood pressure than surely there is a chance to worry about as it is linked with various other diseases as well like heart stroke, kidney disorders, diabetes. So try to keep it under control with the help of proper medication followed by proper diet and lifestyle. Hypertension is said to be caused by stress, obesity, excessive smoking and drinking.
Atherosclerosis is said to occur because of the hardening of the arteries. There is a substance called plaque which is a fatty substance, when it gets deposited on the arteries, it may lead to Atherosclerosis. Due to this the blood supply to the heart is restricted and hence may cause chest pain or heart attack. Though this problem may affect any vessel present inside the body but the most affected ones are the aorta, coronary, carotid. This may start occurring at a young age and hence it is important that the doctor takes into account the history of patient before he begins the medications. But because of the resistance to the blood flow, there is increase in blood pressure of the person concerned.

The worst thing is that a patient who is suffering from hypertension also becomes a patient of the atherosclerosis and a number of other cardio vascular diseases of the coronary and cerebral vessels. This in turn has a negative effect on the brain and heart. The situation may also lead to the rupture of the blood vessels present inside the brain. Yet another important aspect is that sometimes the arteries in atherosclerosis may get narrowed down so much that they are hardly able to receive nay blood supply. This too calls for attention. The most important aspect is to go for regular checkups before the situation assumes alarming proportion.

My father-in-law passed away in 07 and I just stumbled across his autopsy report and it stated that he passed away from Hypertensive Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease. He couldn't smell or taste anything for about two years before passing, I was wondering if these are symptoms of this disease. I am worring that the same sudden departure may happen to my husband ( his son ) and I have read many articles but didn't see symptoms or signs. Thank you for your time, your kindness will be greatly appreciated..

As far as we know, he never c/o anything He lived at home with his mom and sister until a year prior to his death. He never was Dx with any heart prob or hypertension thru out his life. Is this disease a silent killer ? I have read up on this but I would like something in lamens terms explaining this awful condition. My wife, victims mother would like some answers She needs closure, not to ever forget him tho. Also the 3 people in the car he was driving at the time of his death said he was not dead yet after the accident yet his color was turning blue. The girl friend asked the responding police officer ," aren't you going to do anything for her boy friend " the victim. Could he have been saved or in your opinion, do you think he was dead? The police never tried CPR and no mention of it in his report nor the autopsy report. Thank you.

My auntie passed away 11/20/14 according to the report said hypertensive atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. She went into the hospital E.R with flu like symptoms throwing up and diareha and severe stomach pain. The hospital gave her deluding and morphine half a bag of I.v fluids and sent her home after 1 night. Also of note, her family doctor had told my aunt she had a heart of a 25 year old about a month ago? This doesn't make any sense.

My daughter died 3 months ago tomorrow, she was 47. my SIL got the autopsy report back today and they said she died of hypertensive atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. She had been sick for yrs, about 12 yrs ago she got gangrene in her thigh and had been sick and on meds since. At one time her colesterol count was 3200. U read that right. She was in the hospital at that time with an infection and I have read that some meds will make it go up., She got sick a few days every month or soand would go get fennerghan after a day or so ( for sickness )and she was sick at that time. My SIL worked nights and he said he got her 3-2liter Sprites before he went to work and she drank them all and when he got home that morning, she sent him out for more Sprite and died a few hrs later.

5 yrs ago my youngest son died of a heart attack, he was 47.

This past spring, 11 months ago today, my oldest son, age 53 died of a heart attack.

My oldest son was a trucker and had a lot of stress and had a heart attack 10 yrs ago. Evidently they all had heart disease and we were unaware.

Name: Terri

My husband just passed away from this apparent disease but he did not have high blood pressure recently. However he did have an enormous amount of stress and he was a life-long wing and Beer man so I believe all three of those contributed to his death :-( But darn that sudden death! Nobody was even remotely expecting this at age 54! He was healthy according to his doctor except for being overweight. Ya gotta wonder...

My boyfriends dad died almost 10 years ago, on his death certificate it says he died from hypertensive atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. My question is: is this disease hereditary?

Name: D. Aichner

husband was 57 in 2011 when he passed away with what the death cert. stated was hypertensive and atherosclerotic coronary vascular disease with diabetemellitus. what exactly does that mean?

Name: Melissa

My husband passed away 7/10/19 from this very disease. He had recently lost weight and had a BMI of 29 (about 4% over for his height). He cut out heavy beers and was eating more lean meats and vegetables. He was on lisinipril and repatha shot every two weeks. He was doing jujitsu 3 days a week as well. Unfortunately, DNA played a huge part in his disease. I wish the cardiologists were more concerned with his well being. Shouldn't there have been a stress test done every year since the cardiologists placed stents in 2015? Ugh!

My husband died suddenly and he showed no signs of being sick. He was 45. The cause of death was cerebrovascular accident and hypertensive and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. How come there were no warning signs that this was happening? In the 20 minutes it took to get him to the hospital he had bled too much in his brain to save him. How can it happen so quickly?

Name: Pamela Sue Holden

My husband died on 03/04/21. He had been having massive nose bleeds throughout the month of February resulting in several trips to E.R. for packing of his nostril(s.) The last bleed was so massive, with blood coming from his throat and nose and basically strangling him and filling up a small trashcan about 1/3 full. Upon arriving at E.R. in ambulance he had a coronary arrest and died before they got him on a table. Efforts to resuscitate him were futile. Shouldn't medical personnel have referred him to address his nosebleeds through cautery before it got this bad? His blood pressure was always perfect and he did have some cholesterol issues. Now his death certificate will say "atherosclerosis and hypertensive cardio vascular disease."
