Summaries for Carotid Artery Disease

MedlinePlus: 41 Your carotid arteries are two large blood vessels in your neck. They supply your brain and head with blood. If you have carotid artery disease, the arteries become narrow or blocked, usually because of atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is the buildup of plaque, which is made up of fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances found in the blood. Carotid artery disease is serious because it can block the blood flow to your brain, causing a stroke. Too much plaque in the artery can cause a blockage. You can also have a blockage when a piece of plaque or a blood clot breaks off the wall of an artery. The plaque or clot can travel through the bloodstream and get stuck in one of your brain's smaller arteries. Carotid artery disease often does not cause symptoms until the blockage or narrowing is severe. One sign may be a bruit (whooshing sound) that your doctor hears when listening to your artery with a stethoscope. Another sign is a transient ischemic attack (TIA), a "mini-stroke." A TIA is like a stroke, but it only lasts a few minutes, and the symptoms usually go away within an hour. Stroke is another sign. Imaging tests can confirm whether you have carotid artery disease. Treatments may include: Healthy lifestyle changes Medicines Carotid endarterectomy, surgery to remove the plaque Angioplasty, a procedure to place a balloon and stent into the artery to open it and hold it open NIH: National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute

MalaCards based summary: Carotid Artery Disease, also known as carotid artery diseases, is related to arteries, anomalies of and carotid stenosis, and has symptoms including angina pectoris, chest pain and edema. An important gene associated with Carotid Artery Disease is SLC39A2 (Solute Carrier Family 39 Member 2), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Response to elevated platelet cytosolic Ca2+ and Defects of contact activation system (CAS) and kallikrein/kinin system (KKS). The drugs Exenatide and Simvastatin have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain, heart and lung, and related phenotypes are Increased free cholesterol and homeostasis/metabolism

PubMed Health : 63 Carotid artery disease: Carotid (ka-ROT-id) artery disease is a disease in which a waxy substance called plaque (plak) builds up inside the carotid arteries. You have two common carotid arteries, one on each side of your neck. They each divide into internal and external carotid arteries. The internal carotid arteries supply oxygen-rich blood to your brain. The external carotid arteries supply oxygen-rich blood to your face, scalp, and neck.
