A useful model of a cross-sectioned artery showing the progression of atherosclerosis in which the narrowing of the artery is due to a build up of fatty tissue (cholesterol) and plaque.
The stages that may cause a decrease in blood flow, which can lead to a blood clot or thrombus are illustrated in the following 4 artery cross-sections:
normal artery with no disease
All stages rotate on hinge pin, model does not disassemble.
This model does not have a base
Includes an illustrated patient education card with structures labeled and stages described.
Model size: 1-3/8” dia. x 7/8” (1 cross-section)
Card size: 6-1/2” x 5-1/4”
