Greek term or phrase: αθηρωματική διαδικασία
Οι χαμηλής πυκνότητας λιποπρωτεΐνες (Low Density Lipoproteins, LDL) παίζουν οχι μόνο σημαντικό ρόλο στην έναρξη και την εξέλιξη της αθηρωματικής διαδικασίας αλλά και η μείωση τους έχει άμμεσο και αποδεδειγμένο κλινικό όφελος

atheromatic process
Explanation:
Blockages and narrowings of arteries occur because of "atheroma". Atheroma means that fatty deposits are laid down on the lining of the coronary vessels.
This process can be characterised as:
'atheromatic process' = αθηρωματική διαδιακασία.
I included a web site where I found some information. This subject is quite wide and you will have no problem finding web sites for atherosclerosis (αρτηριοσκλήρωση) in the internet
Hope that helps.
