Health Illustrated Encyclopedia Angioplasty and stent placement - carotid artery 06/18/2012 ()
You have an artery on each side of your neck called the carotid artery. This artery brings needed blood to your brain and face. The blood flow in this artery can become partly or totally blocked by fatty material called plaque. A partial blockage is called carotid artery stenosis (narrowing).

There are two invasive ways to treat a carotid artery that is narrowed or blocked.
