This patient presented with a complaint of temporary weakness in his arm. After a full assessment, Dr. Omar Hamdallah diagnosed him with Carotid artery stenosis. The patient was given regional anesthesia, and Dr. Omar removed the plaques clogging the carotid artery (located in the neck). This procedure improves blood flow in the carotid artery and reduces your risk of stroke. The patient was discharged home the next day and is recovering very well.
