Function and Surgery of the Carotid and Vertebral Arteries Ramon Berguer Vascular surgery is a discipline that has grown by trial and error—and at its core is the process by which surgeons must decide when and how to mend vessels. Function and Surgery of the Carotid and Vertebral Arteries by Ramon Berguer MD PhD (Author) More than a procedural guide, the text represents a guide to decision-making—highlighting individual anatomy, patient screening, selection of procedure, surgical technique, avoidance of pitfalls, and management of potential complications. Arterial supply to the brain is from the internal carotid arteries and from the vertebral arteries coursing on either side of the neck. These arteries arise as branches of the brachiocephalic trunk, left common carotid, and left subclavian arteries. The latter are also called supra-aortic trunks and . This book provides comprehensive information on the management of carotid and vertebral artery disease, and reflects the contributions of many interrelated specialties. Emphasis is placed on medical, endovascular and surgical approaches in managing patients diagnosed with this disease.

The carotid and vertebral arteries in the neck carry blood to the brain, brainstem, and upper spinal cord. These arteries may completely get blocked or become narrower. Restoring or enhancing blood flow in the narrowed arteries, reduces the risk of a potentially life-threatening stroke.

The blockages were discovered on exam or by ultrasound of the neck.

There are four main arteries that supply blood flow to the brain. Two carotid arteries and two vertebral arteries. The carotid arteries can be felt on each side of the lower neck, immediately below the angle of the jaw. The vertebral arteries are located in the back .   The vertebral arteries are most easily located by placing the transducer longitudinally over the common carotid artery and angling it medially so that the vertebral bodies are identified; the transducer is then rotated laterally so that the transverse processes of the vertebrae and the spaces between them are visualised, the vertebral artery.   'first book of its kind to focus exclusively on this area' 'a concise and a valuable resource for any vascular surgery trainee or for any vascular surgeon's library.'-Doodys Publishers' Club, Friday, This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.5/5(1).   Carotid artery surgery is a medical procedure to remove the blockages from the carotid arteries to restore the normal flow of oxygen-rich blood to the brain. This surgery is also called the carotid endarterectomy (CEA). It should be remembered that carotid artery surgery is not dangerous because it is always performed by a team of skilled surgeons and is aimed at improving the quality of .
