Carotid artery disease

Carotid artery stenosis occurs when the main blood vessels that carry oxygenated blood to the brain narrow down. The narrowing of the arteries is caused due to the deposit of cholesterol and other fatty substances. This one is almost similar to the coronary artery disease.

Carotid artery disease risk factors:

  • Obesity
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Family history of heart attack
