Carotid Artery Disease Treatment in Rogers

What is Carotid Artery Disease?

Carotids are the arteries found in your neck that supply blood flow to your brain

Plaque can develop in these neck arteries from build-up of calcium, cholesterol, and fatty substances.

Causes of Carotid Artery Disease

Several different risk factors can lead to plaque build-up in the carotids, which is the most common cause of CAD

In rare instances, inflammation of the walls of the arteries may cause narrowing. However, the main risk factors that lead to carotid artery disease are smoking, high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol.

Symptoms of Carotid Artery Disease

Unfortunately, most people won't notice signs of carotid artery disease until after a stroke happens

It's worth noting that in infrequent cases, some patients may hear ringing in their ears or actually faint due to the lack of blood flow to the brain stemming from the blockage.

Our Treatments

Our carotid artery disease treatments in Rogers include:

Angioplasty

This procedure involves the removal of plaque from clogged arteries that prevents vital blood flow to other organs and tissues. Carotid Artery Disease treatment in Rogers is a minimally invasive procedure that requires minimal downtime, and can be completed in our Office Based Vascular Lab in Rogers.

Angioplasty and Stenting

Stenting

Arterial stenting is often paired with an angioplasty, but not always. An arterial stent is a mesh wired tube that is inserted with a catheter, then expanded in the troubled area of the artery to keep the artery open so blood flow can return to normal. This is a minimally invasive procedure that can be done in our Office Based Lab.
