Carotid Artery Surgery

Carotid artery surgery (called an endarterectomy) is a procedure used to remove plaque and clots from the carotid arteries, located in the neck. Endarterectomy may help prevent a stroke from occurring, particularly in persons with a high level of carotid artery narrowing. Surgery on the carotid artery is usually performed under general anesthesia with continuous brain wave monitoring, but is can also be performed with a regional cervical block.
