Health Illustrated Encyclopedia Angioplasty and stent placement - carotid artery 06/18/2012
You have an artery on each side of your neck called the carotid artery. This artery brings needed blood to your brain and face. The blood flow in this artery can become partly or totally blocked by fatty material called plaque. A partial blockage is called carotid artery stenosis (narrowing). A blockage in your carotid artery can reduce the blood supply to your brain. A stroke can occur if your brain does not get enough blood. There are two invasive ways to treat a carotid artery that is narrowed or blocked.
