Carotid Artery Disease

Full-service Vascular Lab in Phoenix Area Provides Non-invasive & Surgical Procedures

What does the carotid artery have to do with veins?  Well, it’s responsible for supplying blood to both your brain and face and is the large artery found directly under your jaw on both sides of your neck. It’s usually the pulsating artery in your neck.  Believe it or not, one can develop the disease in this artery!  This Carotid Artery Disease is caused by the buildup of these things:  fat, cholesterol, and plaque material and can also cause atherosclerosis within the vessel. Over a period of time, this disease can reduce the vital and necessary blood flow to your brain and face, which can cause a lack of blood supply also known to cause a stroke.
