Carotid Endarterectomy Surgery

Carotid endarterectomy (CEA) is a surgical procedure performed to remove plaque buildup from the carotid arteries, which are the main blood vessels supplying blood to the brain. Plaque accumulation in these arteries can lead to a condition known as carotid artery disease or carotid stenosis, where the flow of blood to the brain is restricted, increasing the risk of stroke.


At Aster Hospitals we provide the highest quality of care and a transformative experience for all your healthcare needs. With our network of multi-speciality hospitals, specialised doctors, and world-class technology, we bring global standards of medical care to our patients.

How is Carotid Endarterectomy Performed?

The procedure involves making an incision in the neck, exposing the affected carotid artery, removing the plaque, and repairing the artery. The surgeon may use a temporary shunt to maintain blood flow during the procedure.

How Long is the Hospital Stay After Carotid Endarterectomy?

The length of hospitalization varies, but most individuals spend one to two days in the hospital for postoperative monitoring and recovery.

Is Carotid Endarterectomy Done Under General Anesthesia?

Yes, carotid endarterectomy is typically performed under general anesthesia. This ensures that the patient is unconscious and pain-free during the surgery.

Can Carotid Endarterectomy Cause a Stroke?

While the procedure is performed to reduce the risk of stroke, like any surgery, there is a small risk of complications.
