Carotid Artery Disease

Abstract

Carotid artery atherosclerotic disease is a well-established risk factor for ischemic stroke. While often asymptomatic, the disease could present with symptoms resulting from low hemodynamic pressure in the carotid system or from emboli arising from carotid plaque. Symptoms typically vary depending on the affected blood vessel: the middle cerebral artery, anterior cerebral artery, or the ophthalmic branch of the internal carotid artery. Symptoms also vary depending on whether the dominant or nondominant hemisphere is involved. Asymptomatic carotid stenosis is picked up incidentally when a bruit is detected on physical examination. In addition to atherosclerosis, other disease processes such as arterial dissection or Moyamoya disease occasionally involve the carotid artery, and are briefly described in this chapter.
