Cerebral Stenosis or Intracranial Atherosclerotic Disease (ICAD)

Duke's experts identify and treat intracranial stenosis, which occurs when blood flow to the brain is restricted by narrowed arteries or plaque buildup (atherosclerosis) in the small twisting vessels deep within the brain. These blockages can greatly increase your risk of stroke. Neurologists and radiologists use sophisticated imaging to diagnose the severity of your condition and aggressively treat stenosis to reduce your risk of stroke or brain damage. If surgery is recommended, our highly skilled neurosurgeons perform minimally invasive or traditional surgery to open blockages and restore blood flow.
