Carotid Artery Angioplasty & Stenting
- The carotid arteries are located on each side of your neck and carry blood flow to the brain. Carotid stenosis is a condition in which the arteries become narrowed or blocked. Carotid angioplasty and stenting of the stenosis is a minimally invasive treatment in which a balloon is used to open the area of the stenosis and a stent (mesh-like tube) is then placed across the area to keep the vessel open.
Intracranial Angioplasty & Stenting
- Narrowing of blood vessels in the small arteries of the brain is called intracranial stenosis. Angioplasty and stenting of these vessels is a minimally invasive treatment in which a small flexible balloon is used to open the area of stenosis and a stent is then placed across the area to keep the vessel open.
