Carotid Artery Surgery

Conditions Related to Carotid Artery Surgery

Carotid artery disease is one of the related conditions to carotid artery surgery. The condition is characterized by a blocked artery (carotid artery) in the neck that carries oxygenated blood to the brain. Plaque is a substance made of calcium, cellular waste, fat substances and more. It can build up in the arteries and block the flow of blood.
 
A blocked artery reduces the amount of oxygenated blood that gets to the brain. Brain cells can die in only a few minutes without oxygen. Carotid artery disease is a serious condition that can lead to stroke.
 
If you suspect you suffer from this condition, schedule an appointment at Florida Hospital to learn about treatments and prevention.
