For essential prescribing information, please visit Carotid Artery Disease and Stroke Every year, 15 million people worldwide suffer a stroke. Nearly 6 million die and another 5 million are left permanently disabled. Stroke is the second leading cause of disability globally. Ischemic strokes account for 80-90 percent of strokes, and an estimated 20-30 percent of these are caused by disease in the carotid arteries that carry blood to the brain. If left untreated, these blockages can fragment, flow to the brain and lead to a potentially disabling stroke, also known as a “brain attack.” For more information about carotid artery disease and the risks involved with any intervention (e.g. bleeding, death, myocardial infarction, restenosis, stroke, TIA, vessel dissection, vessel occlusion, etc.), please visit
