Carotid artery disease

Reducing stroke risk

Your doctor has listened to the side of your neck with a stethoscope in the past. You never knew why, but now you do. Your doctor reports hearing a whooshing noise — something called a bruit (bru-ee) — that raises concern that the main (carotid) artery supplying blood to your brain may be clogging up. This can increase your risk of a stroke, which occurs when the blood supply to part of your brain is interrupted or severely reduced, depriving brain tissue of oxygen and nutrients.
