Carotid artery stenting (CAS) is a procedure that can be used to open a narrowed carotid artery. It involves placing a small, expandable tube called a stent in the narrowed artery. This procedure is also called carotid angioplasty and stenting treatment. The cardiologist moves a balloon and the stent into the carotid artery. The balloon is placed inside the stent and inflated. This opens the stent and pushes it into place against the artery wall. The balloon is then deflated and removed, leaving the stent in place. Over time, the cells lining the blood vessel will grow through and around the stent to help hold it permanently in place. 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). A blockage in your carotid artery can reduce the blood supply to your brain. Sometimes part of a plaque can break off and block off another artery. A stroke can occur if your brain does not get enough blood. Carotid artery stenting (CAS) is a procedure that can be used to open a narrowed carotid artery. This procedure is also called carotid angioplasty and stenting. There are two carotid arteries one on each side of the neck that supply blood to the brain. Carotid endarterectomy is a type of surgery that is used to prevent strokes in people who have carotid artery disease. The carotid arteries supply your brain with oxygen-rich blood. Plaque is made up of fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances found in the blood.
