Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital Now Offers TCAR Procedure

KINGWOOD, TEXAS (October19, 2018)

Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital now offers a minimally invasive stroke prevention procedure for people with carotid artery disease. It’s called transcarotid artery revascularization, or TCAR. Carotid artery disease develops when fatty deposits, or plaque, clog the blood vessels delivering blood to the brain. Over time, the blood flow becomes restricted, increasing the risk for a stroke. An estimated 10 to 20 percent of strokes are caused by the disease, which afflicts 200,000 people every year in the United States.
