Talk to your doctor to see if you qualify for a carotid artery screening.
A quick check of your neck arteries could save your life.
The carotid arteries are the main arteries in the neck that supply blood to your brain.
As you age plaque accumulates inside the carotid arteries causing the arteries to narrow, a vascular disorder known as carotid artery disease.
When excessive plaque builds up inside your carotid arteries, small blood clots can form, break off and travel to the brain, causing a stroke.
Early diagnosis and treatment of carotid artery disease can help prevent stroke, saving lives.
If you are suffering from carotid artery disease, only a vascular specialist can provide you with the best treatment options, such as:
– optimal medical therapy
– transfemoral carotid artery stenting
– TransCarotid Artery Revascularization (TCAR)
– carotid endarterectomy (open surgery)
At The Vein and Vascular Institute, our board certified vascular surgeons use the most advanced ultrasound technology to discover carotid artery disease and the most advanced endovascular surgery methods available anywhere in the world such as TCAR (TransCarotid Artery Revascularization) to treat it, helping to prevent stroke.
TCAR is a less invasive, clinically proven option for carotid artery disease treatment. It is unique in that blood flow is temporarily reversed during the procedure so that any small bits of plaque that may break off are diverted away from the brain, helping to further prevent stroke.
