Cardiovascular System Pathology


Review of Mosby’s Pathology for Massage Therapists, 2nd edition, by Salvo and Anderson. Within the course of Dr. Johnson.

This chapter contained 3 specific areas that make me nervous especially the last bullet as symptoms are asymptomatic

  • plaque build up in arteries
  • a blood clot/thrombus breaking away and blocking an artery in the heart and causing heart attack/death
  • aneurysm; blood clot rupture in a vein
