Carotid Endarterectomy

Carotid endarterectomy procedure

During carotid endarterectomy, your surgeon:

  • Makes a cut in your neck just below the jaw.
  • Opens the carotid artery and carefully removes the plaque.
  • May sew (graft) a man-made patch onto the carotid artery to widen or repair the artery.
  • Closes the artery and skin incisions with stitches.
