Hypertension or blood pressure

If a person’s blood pressure is, then will give antihypertensive to lower it, such as angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors( ACE inhibitors ), inhibitors of alpha and beta( alpha- and beta-blockers ), diuretics, and drugs potassium blocker( calcium blocker ).
Narrowing of the carotid arteries
Is carotid artery or vein in the that serves as the blood to the. Some ischemic due to the of which blood vessels carotid. Refinement is also known as carotid stenosis( carotid stenosis ).
Sometimes surgery is needed to prevent the recurrence of ischemic, one of which is a carotid endarterectomy. Through, fatty that hinders the carotid disposed of by a with a surgery in the patient’s neck.

However, this is not in the, but in the groin. A catheter that carries a special and stent is then inserted into the groin henceforth be directed to the carotid artery.

Once in the carotid, the is to widen a blocked and then supported by the stent.

Treatment of hemorrhagic stroke
