Caption: Distorted coronary arteries. Coloured angiogram (X-ray) of the coronary arteries (thick lines) of a 57-year-old man with megadolichoarteries. This image was taken using coronary catheterisation (coronarography). Dolichoectatic arteries are arteries that have become distorted, dilated, and elongated. This is most often caused by hypertension (high blood pressure), which puts continued stress on the walls of the artery. This degrades the vessel wall by damaging and loosening the collagen and elastin network which makes up the inner layer (intima) of the artery wall.
