Carotid Artery Surgery and Endovascular Intervention

Yale-New Haven Hospital treats carotid disease with both minimally invasive interventions such as angioplasty and stenting, and conventional surgery such as carotid endarterectomy, which are performed with some of the best results attainable in the country. Procedures can be performed under either general or local anesthesia, often according to patient preference.

Carotid Artery Surgery and Endovascular Intervention

Carotid artery disease is present when a buildup of plaque in the main arteries of the neck causes them to narrow. Called carotid artery stenosis, this condition can obstruct blood flow to the brain and cause a stroke.

Our multidisciplinary team -- with specialties in vascular and neurovascular surgery, stroke and interventional radiology -- determine the most appropriate treatment for each patient.
