Vascular Surgery to Prevent Stroke

At Lee Health, our experts in vascular surgery are dedicated to preventing a stroke in patients with vascular conditions that place them at an elevated risk.  

When you are living with a vascular condition that causes a blockage in the arteries - such as carotid artery disease or peripheral artery disease - there is an increased risk of the brain becoming deprived of oxygen. These blood vessels are responsible for carrying blood to the head, neck and other extremities.

Types of Strokes and Causes

There are different types of strokes that can affect the brain, including:

  • An ischemic stroke occurs when the blood supply to the brain is blocked.
  • A hemorrhagic stroke occurs when there is bleeding in the brain. 
  • A transient ischemic attack (TIA) is what some refer to as a “mini stroke" and has the same cause as an ischemic stroke.

These can be warning signs of a serious medical condition in which the patient is at higher risk for a stroke.
