[USPRwire, Mon Aug 19 2019] Carotid Stenosis is a condition where the carotid arteries, the two key arteries that move oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the brain.
[ClickPress, Thu Jul 04 2019] The market for Carotid Stenosis treatment is living on this trend of cardiovascular diseases, where most certain market players present in the cardiovascular industry offers solutions for Carotid Stenosis.
Recently, NAFLD was suspected to be associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, including exacerbating carotid atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease (CAD).[4] NAFLD patients might be at a heightened risk to suffer from cardiovascular disease, especially carotid artery disease.[5] The presence of carotid plaque indicated that a clinical model of early atherosclerosis was an indicator of increased risk of cardiovascular disease.[6],[7] In addition, carotid stenosis was an important risk factor for transient ischemic attacks and strokes which was correlated well with cardiovascular disease.[8] We use carotid stenosis and carotid plaque measured by carotid ultrasound as good surrogate markers of carotid artery disease.
Arenillas, Molina and Chacon et al, [6] as per their study intracranial internal carotid stenosis has been associated with dyslipidaemia, specifically with increased total cholesterol and it also revealed that elevated low density lipoprotein is also a risk factor for internal carotid stenosis.
Carotid stenosis is a well-known risk factor for ischemic cerebrovascular disease.
The diagnosis of the carotid stenosis was confirmed by Doppler sonography, duplex, and angiography (computed tomography, magnetic resonance, or rarely selective angiography).
For this purpose, we retrospectively reviewed the medical records of patients treated for carotid stenosis in a single institution in Southwest China and analyzed stroke recurrence, incidence of all-cause death, disability, and rate of in-stent restenosis later than 120 days after CAS.

Asymptomatic carotid stenosis over 60% is responsible for 1-2% of stroke cases/year, the risk rising to 3-4%/ year when stenosis, active plaque or contra lateral carotid occlusion are present.
In a total of 327 cases of stroke, the majority had mild carotid stenosis, followed by moderate stenosis.
After treating the carotid stenosis, these patients show improvements in their visual symptoms.
