In carotid artery disease, the carotid arteries in your neck become narrowed, meaning a clot is more likely to form there. A clot in one of these arteries can cut off the blood supply to your brain and cause a stroke.
This guide outlines how carotid artery disease develops, who is at risk of it, and what treatment options are available. It also explains why a healthy lifestyle is particularly important if you have carotid artery disease.
