Endarterectomy is the general term for the surgical removal of plaque from an artery that has become narrowed or blocked. Our arteries are normally smooth and unobstructed on the inside but they can become blocked through a process called atherosclerosis, which means hardening of the arteries.
As per our age, a sticky substance called plaque can build up in the walls of arteries. Cholesterol, calcium, and fibrous tissue make up the plaque. As more plaque builds up, demands of organs or muscles, and symptoms may develope.
