Atherosclorosis or “hardening of the arteries” is a very common disease that affects more than 5 million Americans. This disease has multiple presenting complaints, all of which carry a very large burden to our society. The presentation ranges from coronary artery disease to stroke or peripheral arterial disease. Each of which is another “ugly” face of the same problem.
Early identification and treatment is paramount in the management of this disease but an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure for this serious disease.
Dr. Akel will discuss the manifestations, diagnosis, management as well as prevention of Atherosclerosis. Dr. Akel completed his residency in Internal Medicine at Indiana University. He completed his Fellowship in Cardiology and Interventional Cardiology at Methodist DeBakey Vascular Institute and The University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston.
