This 3D medical animation clearly shows the build-up of plaque within an artery, partially blocking the blood-flow. Using a view of the artery in cross-section, LDL cholesterol is showing entering the vessel wall followed by monocytes which grow into foam cells. Smooth muscle cells are shown migrating through the plaque to form a fibrous cap over the clot. ANS00170
