Carotid Artery Surgery

Carotid Artery Surgery

Los Angeles Cardiovascular Surgeons Treat the Disease

Your carotid artery is located on each side of your neck. It is one of the most important parts of the body, as it carries essential blood to the brain. Carotid artery disease (CAD) occurs when these arteries become narrow or blocked by plaque buildup, causing restricted blood supply and increasing the risk of stroke. While CAD may not present symptoms in its early stages, one of the first signs may happen when the victim suffers a stroke or a transient ischemic attack (TIA).

Some of the warning symptoms of a stroke, include:

  • Feelings of weakness, numbness, or tingling that occurs on one side of the body
  • Loss of vision in one eye
  • Inability to speak clearly
  • Inability to control the movement of a limb

Treatment Options for CAD

Depending on the severity of your condition and the specific symptoms that you are experiencing, treatment plans may range from medication and lifestyle changes to surgical operations. The first step may include medicine that lowers blood pressure or cholesterol. You may also need to make lifestyle changes such as quitting smoking or exercising more often. If the disease is severe or has progressed significantly, surgery may be the best or only option.
