The artery supplying blood to the brain (‘carotid artery’) can get narrowed or blocked (‘occlusion’) due to a myriad of causes. High blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, smoking, obesity and a family member having the same condition are the most common risk factors. Depending upon the extent of occlusion, the brain can incur minor to major damage. This brain abnormality is called a ‘stroke’.
