Carotid Artery Disease
Carotid Artery Disease Treatment and Effects on Arteries and VeinsCarotid Artery Disease occurs when the carotid arteries in your neck that supply blood to your brain, get narrowed or blocked. Healthy arteries are unobstructed on the inside, as one ages plaque, which is made up primarily of cholesterol, calcium, can build up in the walls of arteries. As more plaque builds up, your arteries narrow and harden. This is commonly known as hardening of the arteries, which can lead to Carotid Artery Disease which is a serious health problem as it often leads to stroke.
Science and technology has allowed for cutting edge and minimally invasive procedures for vascular disease, such as Endoluminal Grafting.
