Carotid Artery Disease
You have two arteries in your neck, taking blood from your heart to your brain. Disease occurs inside these arteries when you get a buildup of waxy plaque. Plaque can clog the vessels delivering blood to your brain. This puts you at risk of a stroke or TIA, both are medical emergencies. Surgical treatment is called a Carotid Endarterectomy.
