Abstract

Carotid artery stenosis causes one-half of the 700,000 strokes that occur each year in the United States. And it's responsible for 80% of the up to 500,000 transient ischemic attacks that affect patients annually. Wondering what you can do to root out carotid artery stenosis and keep your patients stroke-free? In this article, we'll give you the low-down on carotid artery stenosis: why it occurs, what it looks like, how to detect it, and how to treat it.
