Our Heart-Score '96 reports continue-- educating about strokes-- or brain attacks.
The two biggest arteries that carry blood to the brain are the carotid arteries....there's one on either side of the neck.
About 25-percent of all strokes are caused when the carotid is blocked by plaque.
Now, the idea behind one procedure is to clean out the debris, before a stroke occurs.

It turned out Barbara Bonney had a mild stroke, and both her carotid arteries were almost completely blocked.
The recommendation: surgery to head off a more severe stroke in the future.

WHEN to perform the operation is still being debated.

Recent studies have confirmed the procedure does prevent strokes in both patients who have had a previous one, and those who are on their way to their first.
Another way to accomplish the same thing is now being tried-- balloon angioplasty, routinely used to open clogged arteries to prevent heart attacks is now being used to prevent strokes as well.
Balloon-tipped catheters are threaded into arteries in the head and neck, opening up the blockage.
The procedure may offer more options than surgery-- but only time will tell.

Now, it's fairly easy for your physician to tell if your carotid arteries are blocked-- blocked arteries make a different sound in a stethoscope.
