Atherosclerosis of aorta

•The intima is rough and uneven because of the presence of yellowish (lipid) spots and elevated dense whitish fibrous plaques , which constrict and deform the lumen.
•Hard-set wall  ‘creaks’ when cutting it to wide open because of degenerative calcification, and the surface is ulcerated
•Dark uneven brown-red mass over the bifurcation presents mural thrombosis, which occludes iliac arteries distally
