Stroke-Related Dementia (cont.)

Surgery

The goal of surgery is to improve the flow of blood in the blood vessels of the brain. An example is carotid endarterectomy, an operation to remove a blockage from a carotid artery, one of a pair that comprises the main arteries leading to the brain. Not everyone is a candidate for these operations.
