Home > Conditions > Carotid Stenosis
The carotid arteries are the two main paths for blood to travel from the heart to the brain. Carotid stenosis is a blockage of these arteries that can cause a lack of blood flow between the brain and heart. This blockage is most commonly associated with plaque build-up from high cholesterol. Carotid stenosis most commonly presents as stroke or stroke-like episodes, where the brain doesn’t receive enough blood.
