Introduction to Carotid Stenting

Carotid artery is the artery in the neck supplying blood to the brain from the heart. Atherosclerosis of the carotid artery is responsible for causing stroke in about 20% of all patients with stroke worldwide.

Atheromatous deposits and plaques cause blockage of blood supply to the brain in high risk individuals. These high risk individuals include smokers, those with high cholesterol, diabetes, hypertension. Eventually, these deposits become critical and cause stroke by either small pieces breaking off to the brain or by completely blocking blood supply to the brain.

 

Carotid Stenting Treatment

 

Carotid artery blockage can be treated with open surgery or by placing stent within the artery. Carotid stenting is the minimally invasive option of treating these patients without resorting to open surgery and incision in the neck.

No general anaesthesia is required with most patients discharged from hospital within 1-2 days. Newer devices and techniques with experienced hands have made the technique extremely safe and effective for the patients. Multiple studies and trials over last few years have shown carotid stenting to be as effective and safe as open surgery. Other advantage is that multiple blockages can be treated at the same time. In addition, any stroke causing clot can be removed at the same time from the brain during the procedure to help establish normal blood flow to the brain. There are more several types of neurointerventional treatments we offer to treat different problems that occur in the brain including brain aneurysm.

Put Brain Aneurysm on Your Health Radar

Did you experience the worst headache of your life? Could it be a brain aneurysm that ruptures, which means bleeding in the brain? Thoughts could be racing through your mind. Then what is the difference between unruptured (a weak or thin spot on an artery in the brain that balloons) or ruptured brain aneurysm? If you’re wondering, then the Supreme Vascular and Interventional Clinic is here to help. It’s important to look out for the tell-tale brain aneurysm symptoms, signs, causes, and risk factors.

Dr. Manish Taneja has been performing brain aneurysm treatments since 1995 from surgical clipping to latest minimally invasive procedures. Each patient is unique as is the size and location of the aneurysm. Your brain has different conditions to treat the aneurysm and artery vessel walls of a blood vessel in the brain. This calls for personalised brain aneurysm treatment depending on your symptoms, family, history, medication, and more. A simple CT scan could be just what the doctor ordered and the first step in early detection and prevention of a brain aneurysm.
