Carotid Coronary Artery Stenosis
Carotid artery stenosis is a narrowing or blocking of the carotid arteries, the two main arteries at each side of the neck. Coronary artery stenosis is a narrowing or constriction of the heart arteries. Left untreated, these conditions can lead to heart attack or stroke.Treatment is Possible if Diagnosis is Timely
If properly and timely diagnosed, stenosis may be treated with balloon angioplasty, stents and other medical procedures. Some cases of artery stenosis can even be treated with a daily aspirin regimen. Endarterectomy, the surgical removal of plaque inside the artery, may, in other cases, be necessary. Unfortunately, however, if misdiagnosed or mistreated, the stenosis, or narrowing, limits the blood supply and oxygen delivered to the brain and to the heart muscle. This can lead to tragic results: heart attack and stroke.Call Us to Learn How We Can Help
