Specialty of Vascular surgery

Carotid surgery or carotid endarterectomy, is a type of surgery used to remove plaque (fatty deposits) that occurs in carotid arteries. The aim of the extraction of the plaque is to improve the blood supply to the brain and reduce the risk of suffering a stroke. This type of surgery is advised when the blockage of the carotid is to a considerable degree, usually when various medical tests have detected that the artery has narrowed by 50%.
