Hi,
I don’t think you need to worry regarding the same as minimal atherosclerosis in the abdominal aorta will be found in almost everyone who’s living on earth. Atherosclerosis is basically the deposition of fat in the inner lining of the blood vessels and this process starts right from the day we are born.
Atherosclerosis involves all the blood vessels in the body and in certain vessels it’s more dangerous, e.g. vessels supplying blood to the heart and the brain.
Please be assured and not to worry.
I sincerely hope that helps. Please do keep me posted. Kind Regards.
