  VARIOUS ASPECTS of the relation between extracranial internal carotid artery (ICA) occlusive disease and stroke have been widely explored in the medical literature.

To reduce that risk and keep blood flowing to the brain, doctors may recommend a carotid endarterectomy – a relatively noninvasive surgical procedure that can cut stroke risk by half in people who have no stroke symptoms.

A few people had been experiencing Transient Ischaemic Attacks (TIAs) or minor strokes as a result of a partial block in the carotid artery and were offered surgery to clear the blockage. The main treatment options for severe blockages in the carotid artery are carotid endarterectomy, and carotid angioplasty or .   If you have had a stroke or TIA, or if you have a severely blocked carotid artery, you may benefit from surgery to remove the plaque. This surgery is called a carotid endarterectomy. This procedure is time-sensitive and should be done soon after the stroke or TIA, with the goal of preventing another stroke.
