Illustration of the development of a stenosis (narrowing) in an artery. The first illustration shows a healthy artery; in the second illustration, the vessel diameter has been reduced by deposits in the vessel wall. The third illustration shows the occlusion by a thrombus, which can no longer pass through the blood vessel at the narrow section and subsequently blocks the vessel.
