Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Carotid endarterectomy surgery. Close-up of a plaque being removed from the exposed carotid artery (centre) in the neck of a patient undergoing an endarterectomy. Carotid endarterectomy is a surgical technique for removing obstructions (such as plaques) that are causing stenosis (narrowing) within the lower neck portion of the carotid artery. If these obstructions were not removed they could cause a stroke.
