Carotid Artery Stenosis
Carotid artery stenosis is a condition in which the inner surface of the carotid artery is narrowed or constricted. This is often caused by atherosclerosis, or the buildup of fatty materials like cholesterol on the wall of the artery.
This condition can be potentially dangerous, leading to further complications like stroke. Because of this, it’s important to seek treatment from qualified vascular professionals like the staff at Vascular Surgical Associates. Our team members are experts in providing skillful diagnosis and treatment for carotid artery stenosis. Treatment options may include stenting, endarterectomy (or the removal of plague from the artery), or medical therapy.
