Treatment of carotid artery occlusive disease

It is essential to evaluate the underlying cause of occlusion of carotid artery and treat it effectively. The treatment includes certain medications like anti hypertensives for controlling high blood pressure. Lipid lowering drugs are recommended in individuals with abnormal values of lipids in blood tests. Lifestyle modifications like weight management, good dietary habits, smoking cessation and regular physical exercise are helpful in delaying the progression of the disease. The doctor may also prescribe aspirin medication to be taken regularly. In certain instances where an individual may experience extensive neurological deficit, surgical procedures like carotid endarterectomy or balloon stent angioplasty may provide benefit. Balloon stent angioplasty is a minimally invasive surgery which results in minimal post operative complications. Other measures include supportive and symptomatic management which may help in maintaining good quality of life.
