English term or phrase:intestinal plaque
Уважаемые коллеги, пожалуйста, подскажите соответствующий русский термин для "intestinal plaque".
Можно ли перевести его как "шлаковые отложения в кишечнике"?
Контекста немного - один абзац:
The body tries to protect the intestine by enclosing the infected area with more mucus. By and by old faeces and mucus harden to a rubbery black mass = intestinal plaque. The plaque may remain in the intestine for tens of years destroying the function of the intestine, the absorption of nutrition as well as the immune system etc.
