The process of removing plaque built up from an artery is referred to as endarterectomy. It is a common surgery used to treat and restore the blood flow in various arteries such as the carotid artery and the femoral artery. Carotid arteries in the neck are responsible for supplying oxygen-rich blood to the brain and the femoral artery is used to carry blood to the lower limbs. The restrictions in a blood flow can create complications


Endarterectomy may be indicated in patients who these symptoms:

  • Carotid artery disease
  • Coronary heart disease
  • Peripheral arterial disease (PAD)
  • Renal (kidney) artery disease
  • Aortic arch conditions
  • Aortoiliac (leg artery) occlusive disease

Endarterectomy may be performed to clear plaque from arteries in the leg.

Endarterectomy is usually indicated if the patient’s artery has narrowed more than 50% or if the patient has had one or more symptoms of artery disease, including:

Temporary loss of vision, speech, or sensory or motor functions on one side of the body or in one leg or arm (carotid artery disease)
Critical ischemia, or severe pain in the leg because of a lack of oxygenated blood, Gangrene, or tissue death caused by a restricted blood supply to a limb
