Carotid Angioplasty

Carotid angioplasty is a procedure performed on the carotid arteries that run from either side of the neck. They are the main arteries that supply oxygenated blood to the brain. Sometimes plaque may deposit on the inner walls of the carotid arteries.

These blockages may not be severe enough to warrant a major surgery. In the case of extensive blockages, surgery may not be an option. In such cases a catheter with a deflated balloon on one end is introduced into a blood vessel. When this catheter reaches the blocked artery, it is inflated. This widens the artery sufficiently enough for normal blood flow to resume. In some cases carotid angioplasty is also accompanied with stenting, where a tube is placed to keep the artery open.
