Heart & Cardiology/angiogram

Question
Hi, I am female age 68 and had an angiogram 3 years ago due to slight chest pain. The results were clear arteries with roughage around the edges. I would like to know what roughage around the edges mean and could it get worse over the years and cause more chest pain.

Thank you

Answer
Hi Merril
I don't know what they meant, but assume "mild". If so, you should be checked regularly for progression and meanwhile live as heart healthy life style as possible:
